About Michelle

My background

With 25+ years in the early childhood profession to draw on,

you are in good hands.

Teaching young children is rewarding but also hard at times and I want to support teachers to save them TIME, MONEY and LOVE what they do.

I am an advocate for keeping things simple and play based as you may know from the page I run

I started creating story baskets because they are hands on, they can support or extend any interest, cover any curriculum area and be used by teachers or children.

Other teachers saw my story baskets, bought them and wanted MORE.

I can now support YOU to make and share story baskets.


What teachers have said


Well that was fun and really enjoyed the challenge, thank you! When I brought the story basket out the children were so excited and curious. The first time I read it I was very nervous about how it would turn out. In the end I just let the children dictate how it went and just went with the flow.  The next day I made a few changes how I presented it and the children even asked for me to bring my basket out all morning.

I can’t wait now to make another story basket!
