I am often asked how exactly the idea of opening up Jumping Stars came to life. After all, opening up a mobile creche business probably isn’t something that everyone would think of as a preferred business idea.
For me, I can trace my business opening right back to my childhood and growing up with my family around me.
My Grandma was a teacher and a great one at that. I always enjoyed watching how much she cared about her job and the impact that she had on the children who she taught. It was after spending time with her that I think that the passion for childcare became ignited in me, especially after I saw just what it meant to her.
It came as little surprise that as soon as I was old enough, that I started to work with children. When I was 16 this came in the form of many babysitting jobs. All of which I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved being able to sit and play with the children; interacting with them and ensuring that they had great fun whilst they were in my care.
I moved on from this and decided to become fully qualified in Childcare; a course that I took hugely seriously. After completing my training I decided to start working in the area that I loved so much and got myself a job role in a church hall based pre-school setting. Not only did this allow me to look after the children and watch them grow and learn, but it also gave me invaluable experience too.
I would plan activities to do with the children and think about new games. I would set these up and then at the end of the day I would pack them all away again.
This work carried on for a number of years; until I realised that I could take these talents, that passion and turn it into a viable business.
This is where Jumping Stars was born. I wanted to use the passion that burns inside me to help children to grow and develop. I wanted to use it to push my own career even further, whilst offering a great service to children and their parents.
Jumping Stars has been running for some time now and I have realised that I really have found something that I love to do.
Not only am I incredibly proud of setting up and running my own business; but I am also proud to say that I have worked hard to ensure that my clients are always happy. I want my business to grow and change with the times. Which is why I look to the future.
I am always conducting research and making sure that I am up to date with the latest technology, which ensures that I not only offer the best in mobile creche services, but that I have the right teachings, resources and of course childcare regulations too.
Who knows what the future holds for my business? What I do know is that I would love you to be a part of it!
