I’m Roxanne, founder of The Little Sensory Co ✨
Here I am collecting our finalist certificate at the What’s on 4 Kids Awards last week 🙌
I started my little business just over 6 years ago around my two beautiful children, who at the time were only a baby and toddler. My maternity leave was coming to an end and the thought of returning to work and not being there for them when I wanted and needed to be filled me with dread. So that’s when I decided to set up a sensory room in my area, which allowed me to take them to work with me.
After around 6 months I went on to set up our Little Mess classes. Lots of parents attended and showed an interest in wanting to deliver their own classes and the need to earn money around their children with flexible work. This encouraged me to look into franchising and supporting other parents into creating their own business.
After taking on my first franchisees in my local area, I set up our Little Massage and Little Yoga classes, teaching them myself alongside Little Glow, whilst my new franchisees ran Little Mess. I wanted to be able to provide all aspects of sensory play and development from 0-5 years and have always had a passion for the holistic and natural benefits of both massage and yoga for babies and parents.
Since then we have expanded across the UK, Ireland and Guernsey and have over 40 wonderful leaders delivering our classes, events and sessions.
I love what I do. It’s an amazing feeling being able to support other parents to have more freedom and flexibility around family life.
I want to say a special thank you to my husband Kirk Hulme for encouraging and supporting me to set up my first ever session and for always believing in me.
I also want to shout out to the team of women who support me on a daily basis, Felicity, Kayleigh & Claire. I’m not sure what I would do without you guys some days 🤪💛
Andddd lastly but no means least our amazing and dedicated franchisees who work so hard to bring our classes to their area, you make The Little Sensory Co what it is today and I’m so grateful to have you as part of our team 🙏
