Jann Thorpe had a successful career in primary education for 14 years. After leaving teaching and taking some time out she searched her job 'wish list' online and discovered 'The Creation Station'.
Jann is most definitely THE person to speak to for keeping your little ones creative and entertained!
We asked Jann to share why she loved providing creative activities in her community- this is what she said...
Why did you want to run your own business?
"The flexibility and personal responsibility of driving my business in the way that I think is right is one of the amazing benefits of running your own business. I've found my passion and can follow it"
What attracted you to The Creation Station?
"It excited me and suited everything I wanted from a job. Running both the pre-school classes and after-school clubs in Macclesfield I have the opportunity to have all the good parts of teaching without the endless marking, assessment, data and Ofsted."
Describe your highlights so far...
"Having an ever increasing number of children that continue to come term after term to my after-school clubs in Macclesfield. They come because they enjoy the club and I can see their improvements - in confidence and imagination as well as their skills and understanding of art. They are excited about arts and crafts with the freedom to develop their own ideas along with dedicated time and good quality resources."
Don't just take our word for it, look what parents say about Jann & her classes...
How do you feel about the future?
"Really positive! The breadth and potential of the business is enourmous spanning from 'Tiny Treasure newborn keepsake sessions through to 'Care & Creativity' craft workshops in care homes - I am really looking forward to running lots of fantastic craft workshops and events in Macclesfield this year!"
