Hi I’m Janine Pegg and I run Pop Up Play Village Wokingham, Henley and Ascot.
(This also includes the surrounding areas of Woodley, Earley, Lower Earley, Finchampstead, Crowthorne and Bracknell).
I have two daughters, Sophie and Natalie and I first came across Pop Up Play Village back in 2017 when I was writing my blog (The Pegglet Mama) and Becky contacted me about her new business. I popped along to one of the sessions and instantly fell in love with the concept and knew that this was different. The sessions give children the freedom to play and explore and choose what they want to do in a safe and happy environment. There are many classes out there but there was something so educational and stimulating for both baby and toddler in this class; I felt that Pop up Play definitely bridged the gap in this market. I was therefore thrilled to join the team and launch my own Pop Up Play Village Franchise, especially as I knew from the start that Becky was onto something special. It’s been exciting to watch the business grow into such a wonderful place for children to explore and learn.
Before my little ones came along I worked as the Head of LAMDA at Cranford House School and ran my own drama company: Dramatix Productions. When thinking about returning to work, I knew I still wanted to teach children, but needed to find something family friendly, that could work around my girls and their childcare, alongside my private LAMDA tuition. Pop Up Play Village was the ideal solution. Particularly as I can use my skills as a Drama and LAMDA teacher within a role play setting!
Most importantly however, I’m so passionate about parents and children having fun and socialising together. Pop Up Play Village sessions provide the opportunity to do exactly that and for our little people to pretend to be whatever they want to be! A builder, a parent, a shop keeper, a doctor or a vet! I wonder what your child will choose?
Thank you for reading and I hope to meet you and your little one at one of our sessions very soon for some Pop up Play Village fun!
