“The things that make me different are the things that make me” Winnie The Pooh
If you have children in your life you will know that they do not fit into categories. We are both mums, friends and teaching assistants. Over several years and countless issues that came our way as our children grew, we realised that if there is one thing we had learned it is that children are all so incredibly different. Of the children we know well, in and out of work, we have seen a phenomenal range of interests, personalities, needs and characteristics – musical, shy, autistic, anxious, confident, horse-mad, sporty, dyslexic, geeky, gay, artistic, quiet, overactive, lazy, dynamic, frightened – the list goes on, but the only important thing here is that they are all children who need to be able to embrace that uniqueness. We wanted to understand and then discover all the best things there are to perfectly match the needs and characteristics of children and hopefully make life easier for them and the people in their lives So this is the basis of our website. Children and their boundless individuality.
“I raised five children. They all have different personalities. All of them have different issues, different levels of success. That was a learning experience for me” T. D. Jakes
