Mum's School of Fun is founded and run by Adele, a mum to four young children, a highly-qualified teacher, a school leader and an education consultant in the UK.
Adele has worked in the education sector as an Assistant Principal for a trust of schools for around 12 years. During this time, she specialised in coaching and mentoring teachers to improve their pedagogical practice, and developed a range of Teaching and Learning CPD programmes to support staff. In addition to this, alongside her work in schools, she qualified as an Outstanding Teacher Facilitator with OLEVI and also gained a qualification in coaching. Adele not only enjoyed working with and supporting teachers but loved working with the students, too. She held responsibility for the safeguarding and well-being of all pupils, which was a challenging but rewarding part of her role as Assistant Principal. Adele even won a Kent Teacher of the Year award and continues to find it a huge privilege to work with so many wonderful young people. Following her third maternity leave, Adele decided to take a break from working in school and has found flexibility and great enjoyment as an Education Consultant. In her spare time, Adele is a governor at her local primary school and trustee of a preschool, both very rewarding roles. She also volunteers for St John Ambulance.
During the pandemic, Adele established the Mum's School of Fun platform, with the wish to offer support to parents, carers and teachers during school closures by providing fun, quick and simple learning activities for children.
Adele is now across most social media platforms, sharing daily activities for children aged 0-8. She is passionate about active learning and is an advocate for ''thinking hard'' strategies and child-led learning activities that develop and encourage a child's progress, enjoyment, attainment and engagement. Adele really enjoys sharing activities that help parents, carers and teachers with creative, active learning ideas.

Teaching and Learning
I offer bespoke Teaching and Learning packages for schools.
I am able to tailor each package to suit your setting and needs. I am able to offer virtual training nationwide/internationally, and in-house training for schools in the Kent area.
I have run extensive training courses for NQT's for many years and have packages specifically designed to support the teaching standards. I also offer packages designed to support teachers in achieving Outstanding teaching and learning in the classroom.
I know that every school and every setting has individual needs, and therefore I am happy to discuss further with anyone interested in booking a training package.
Change can be a daunting prospect for young children, so finding ways to make a smooth transition is vitally important.
As a mum, I have supported my own children with the transition to primary school and I am also trained in effective transition in early years.
If you have a child due to start school and would like to have a virtual support meeting, then please get in contact with me. I am able to offer a range of support and advice around preparing your child for starting school and what school readiness means to you and your child.
In addition to this, I also have years of experience supporting children in the transition between primary and secondary school, and can offer virtual support meetings for parents and carers wishing to discuss transition for children moving to secondary school.
If you are a brand or small business, please get in touch to discuss how we can work together.
Previous ways I have worked with brands and businesses include affiliate marketing, guest blogs, guest reviews and sponsored or gifted stories and posts.
I like to ensure my social media platform is authentic, so the majority of what I post is not advertisement. This ensures I am providing a positive and genuine service that my followers really enjoy. Therefore, I only accept a limited number of collaborations per year to maintain this integrity, authenticity and high-quality content.
