Why I Have Created This Website
Hello, I'm Ellie.
I have graduated Cardiff Metropolitan University with an art degree. I have also completed my teacher training and am currently a Teacher at Battledown Children Centre in Cheltenham.  I have been working for the past 2 years, first as an early years practitioner, then a trainee teacher. Due to most children being unable to go to school because of the current global situation with Covid19, I decided to set up this website. Full of fun and creative activities, to keep young minds active, and help motor development.
