Our Friendly Franchise Owners
Delivering Inspiration Everyday
We are able to help inspire imaginations and nurture creativity across the land, because of our fabulous, friendly family of franchise owners.
Our family come from a wide range of backgrounds from banking to teaching, and we even have a Crime Scene investigator and a BBC cameraman. However, we all share the common purpose of wanting to make a positive difference to others.
It is with this passion, care and a commitment to high standards, that we provide all our fun and creative activities and experiences.

Finding the next generation of Creation Station leaders is crucial to delivering our award winning program to new families in more locations.

When Ruth is not waxing lyrical about her job, she loves mountain biking and spending quality time with her family & friends, enjoying sangria and tapas!

Fun is infectious and we provide shared fun experiences that help to bond and unite parents/carers with their child or children, as well as sharing experiences in a social group to help connect and develop friendships.
- Ensure Quality
We are committed to consistently high standards in our sessions, products, professionalism, safety and trust. We believe in quality positive experiences that earn us the respect and recommendations with every relationship we nurture and build. For us, quality means the challenge of continuous improvement to help inspire imaginations and to support our communities and partners and all those who share this passion.

Practical hands on learning opportunities provide fun ways to experiment, explore and discover. Helping each child and parent/carer to expand their thinking and value each moment.
- Inspire Imagination
We do this by providing journeys of exploration and discovery, enabling each child to be inspired by their natural curiosity and to imagine how ordinary things become extraordinary. We help to start each journey, allowing each child to discover and explore in their own way. This is how children develop their imagination and it is the foundation for creativity.
- Nurture Creativity
We are here to help nurture each child’s creativity and to help them develop their own ideas which we recognise and value.
- Give Care
We are privileged to help and share in the magic of childhood and our caring will make a positive difference in the lives of children, for our partners, colleagues and the world we find ourselves in today. We are passionate about being authentic and going the extra mile for other people and exceeding expectations because it feels right and because we care.
