Hi there and welcome to Learn with Play @ home.

 I am Deborah (Debs).

I am currently on family leave from Primary School Teaching (BEd) with my bright, imaginative and active 3 year old, Madeline, and my curious little baby man, Noah.

I am absolutely loving my time away from my career to raise my children while they are young but I do certainly miss it and have found myself still pulled towards education.

I started this blog as a way for me to not only reconnect to others in the same profession as me and with the same child driven motivation as me, but also as a way to try and help other Mothers and Carers find easy ways to keep their children entertained at home and share with them easy tips to assist them in helping their children to learn.

Childhood should be fun and learning is massive part of childhood...and while we are learning all the time, we might as well make it fun!

I am thoroughly enjoying taking my teaching training and philosophies and implementing those into giving my children the best start to their lives and education as I can.

I hope you can find something useful here.

Debs :)
