I’m Emma and I am the founder of Adventure Babies sensory storytelling classes. Before Adventure Babies I spent 10 years as a dedicated, ambitious and successful primary school teacher gaining experience and knowledge of child development and taking on whole school senior leadership responsibilities. I love teaching, love working with children and have a real passion for baby and child development.
The first five years of a child’s life are so crucial to their development that after having my son I knew I needed to find a way of combining my passion for teaching and learning but also spending time being a mummy and providing a new opportunity for families across the U.K
