Hello! I'm Maddie, a mum of two living locally in Burley-in-Wharfedale. Over the past 15 years, I've gained considerable experience of working with children and young people in a range of settings (including an 8 year stint as a primary school teacher). My passion lies in creativity and the arts and I'm never happier than when I'm up to my elbows in paint! I also love children's literature and am a great believer in the importance of sharing books with our babies from day one. Story Bees was created to combine these two loves and has been growing in the back of my mind for a number of years now... so here it is! I hope you'll come to join in at one of our sessions soon and find out what it's all about!
