About Us

Welcome to the shop of Learning and Exploring Through Play. A small family run business from the heart of Birmingham, UK. 

I'm Amy and the face behind it all although it is very much so a family affair. The children love helping and it's great fun for them to take pride and want to be apart of this journey too. 

James works full time but he is very hands on and the one who encouraged me to open up the shop. He has always been very supportive of my passion and I will always be very thankful for that. 

Learning and Exploring Through Play has been running since 2013. I was taking a pause in my career after having my daughter. I had enjoyed 8 wonderful years of working in mainstream education and although I loved being a stay at home Mom I really missed being apart of the classroom buzz. 

I signed up for a blog when my daughter was a few months old and I never looked back. I quickly began to connect with people all over the world - who just like me had a passion for play and learning. 

Our family has grown in size and we now have a daughter who is 8 years old and identical twin boys who are 4. They are the heart of everything I do. 

The shop is a wonderful addition to our brand. I launched it earlier this year after finally taking the plunge. You wouldn't believe how long I have been talking myself out of it. Such a big leap but now I've taken it, I regret not doing it sooner! I can't tell you how much joy this is bringing me. I love packing orders!

Here you can find the best resources for your children as they develop and grow. There is something for all ages and abilities! All products we sell have been tried and tested with children, who love them! 

With a background in mainstream education, I have seen first hand how important it is to provide children with quality resources for their overall development in order for them to reach their full potential.

Each product has been carefully selected. We have a team of play reps who try out our products before they arrive for sale in the shop. We take pride in our own research as we want to deliver the best to you! Research and personal hands on experience is paramount when making our selections.
With experience in the current curriculums we also keep this in mind when selecting which items should be sold in the shop.
We put ourselves at the very forefront of our business. We are thankful for each order and care about the customers who buy from us.
You can always expect high quality customer service from Learning and Exploring Through Play.
