Sarah was a primary school teacher for 7 years. With a passion for art and creativity she was looking for a career that allowed her to explore her ideas and choose her own working hours. She now runs award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events for all ages in Cwmbran.
Sarah is most definitely THE person to speak to for keeping your little ones creative and entertained!
This month we are proud to have presented Sarah our 'Franchisee of The Month' award. Sarah is making a really positive difference in her local community and is working hard work to grow her business - well done Sarah!
Why did you want to run your own business?
"I was excited at the opportunity to choose my own working hours and to put all of my focus and efforts into the projects and ideas that I wanted to explore. I am passionate about art and creativity being a part of children's lives as it can help them in so many different ways."
What attracted you to The Creation Station?
"It incorporated working with children and art and creativity which are the two aspects of teaching that I adored the most. Creativity is so important because it allows people to step outside of 'normal' day to day life and let their minds run free! I also think it's great for mental health which is increasingly important nowadays."
"With the support of the other franchisees and the Head Office team, I know there is always someone who I can ask for help or advice."
Describe your highlights so far...
"I have hosted over 70 crafty birthday parties since I started a year ago and over 50 weeks of 'Baby Discover' and 'Little Explorer' pre-school classes! The online reviews that I have received are so lovely and inspire me to continue doing what I do! I have even been featured in our local newspaper."
Don't just take our word for it, look what parents say about Sarah & her classes...
How do you feel about the future?
"Investing in The Creation Station was the best decision I ever made. I love the different strands of our business and it enables me to work with people from birth to 100 years old and I absolutely love it. I have so many exciting plans for my business but I plan to kick off the new year with a super-fun New Year 'Play-Doh & Paint' party. "
