Celebrating Success With Hayley From The Creation Station Swindon South

Hayley used to manage control operations in the renewable energy sector.  In her spare time she loves to perform stand up comedy, sing and take part in musical theatre.  Her passion to achieve a flexible work balance and encourage children to ask questions and solve problems creatively has led her to an exciting new career!  She now runs successful, award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events for all ages in Swindon, Calne and Royal Wotton Bassett.  

Hayley is most definitely THE person to speak to for keeping your little ones creative and entertained! 

Winner of the Creation Station national 'Franchisee Of The Month' award for September 2019, we asked Hayley 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?

"After having my daugther I had major mummy guilt over returning to work.  I found myself with lots of transferable skills and incredibly frustrated that in order to have a flexible work life balance my salary would have to reduce."

What attracted you to The Creation Station?

"I had not heard of The Creation Station before and liked what I heard and saw at the National Franchise Exhibition."

Describe your highlights so far...

"I love the buzz of parties and events...I didn't expect to see how the children react to praise and encouragement when they show me their creations.  It gives me a warm glow that I have had a tiny but significant impact on them continuing in the world of imagination and creativity."

Don't just take our word for it, look what parents say about Hayley & her classes...

How do you feel about the future?

"We are so excited to be running a 4 day Halloween craft 'extravaganza' at The Brunel Shopping Centre in October.  Alongside our 'Creative Crafters' adult workshops we have a very exciting festive programme launching at the moment."

I'm in my fifth year of business now and know what works for me.  I want to grow my business to its full potential with after-school 'Create Clubs' and 'Creative Crafter' workshops.  I would love to also eventually get my own premises and establish a firm presence - the possibilities are endless!"

If you'd love to come along to one of Hayley's awesome classes or you are looking for some event entertainment or a fun birthday party entertainer in Swindon, Caine and Wotton Bassett you can find out more at The Creation Station Norwich and Broadland.

Austin had a great couple of days and was very proud of all the creations he came home with, they are exhibited for all to see! Lovely for him to do something different and being a fairly small group was great for him, not too overwhelming. Thank you x

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions.

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions once a week. He is doing things that I wouldn’t have thought to do and because it’s a set time each week we’re sitting down and doing it together! The bags are prepared for us with everything in that we need and it is so much fun getting the supplies out and waiting to find out what we are going to do with them each week. Eleanor is interactive and I noticed that on week 3 my young man is speaking out to her and wanting to engage with her. We are so happy to have found the creation station.

Brilliant. My granddaughter enjoys it very much. Kirsty who takes the club interacts with all the children lovely. If any of the children doesn’t quite get what they are supposed to be doing she goes over it again.She likes to see how their activity is progressing and encourages them all the way. She knows all the children and what they like and dislike in their art activities. It is not just an art group it is educational as well

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Today me and my daughters participated in two free taster sessions with Kelly via Zoom. One was for babies and the other was for children of a similar age to my four year old. Kelly was so so friendly and that really came across even through a screen. I loved the variety of activities the girls did, each creating a very different name plaque and one princess mirror. The bags were delivered last week which gave me time to look through them and just made everything smooth and organised. We are defiantly interested in further sessions around yearly events such as Christmas. If the virtual session today was as good as it was I can only imagine how fun and engaging a real life face to face one would be! Thanks again Kelly!!?
