We would like to welcome you to Pop Up Play Village in and around Portsmouth! Here is a little bit about us:
Hi, my name is Becky and I will be running “Pop Up Play Village in and around Portsmouth” with my friend (and now also business partner) Jeanette.
I’ve been working in childcare for 25 years, in Montessori, Council and Private/Independent nurseries, and have been a Manager for the last 16 years. I have really enjoyed working in the childcare industry.
I have a 2 year old son & returned to work full time the day after his 1st birthday. After returning to work I decided that I needed a new venture that would give me a better work/life balance and that could adapt to the needs of my family.
When I was chatting to Jeanette, who had already enquired with Pop Up Play Village, I thought how exciting it sounded. Not only to run your own business, but also having the opportunity to still be working with children & families, which I love. Being able to watch the children’s faces light up, encouraging them to be independent & confidently explore, whilst using their imagination to run wild. At the same time supporting their parents and carers to engage in the overall experience, help them to support their child’s development and meet other people too.
Next thing I knew it had popped up on my social media so I enquired too!
As a new parent I have also enjoyed taking my son to groups to meet new people & to go to with our friends. Time for us to chat over a cuppa, share stories of how they are developing & watch our children play & have fun together.
We look forward to meeting you at one of our play sessions soon and have as much fun as we do.
Please contact us with any enquiries you have.
See you soon x
Hi I’m Jeanette, and I have the privilege of running Pop Up Play Village In and around Portsmouth with my good friend Becky!
I have over 25 years experience in the early years sector, proudly achieving 3 consecutive Ofsted Outstanding ratings in my last role as a nursery manager.
My qualifications include a BA in Education & Training Studies, Early Years Professional Status & I am trained in paediatric first aid.
I have an energetic 3 year old son with a super imagination! To have the opportunity to launch a business which will fit around his needs, and support & extend his learning as well as hundreds of other children is really exciting!!!
I firmly believe that children learn through play & exploration. It allows them to use their creativity whilst developing their imagination, and giving them a sense of adventure! Children gain essential skills such as problem solving, interacting with others & sharing.
Pop Up Play Village In and around Portsmouth is the perfect place for children to develop all of these skills, so come along and let their imaginations run wild!!
Adults get to enjoy a free hot drink too!! Tempted???? Go on, give our sessions a go!! Guaranteed fun & learning for all the family!
