Hello, I'm Clare, an Independent organiser and leader with Usborne Books at Home.
I signed up when I was pregnant with my second child and in need of a 'me' project. I knew I wouldn't be returning to work as a self-employed ESOL teacher, because the costs of childcare just wouldn't make it worthwhile and I had realised that I wanted to stay at home with my children.
We offer the very best books for children through stalls at events, baby & toddler groups, home parties, special initiatives for schools and much more and I show other Mums how straightforward it can be to run sustainable, successful businesses doing the same.
I'm into my second year of delighting children, parents, carers, childcare practitioners and teachers at the events I attend. My mission is find the very best books for you and your family or childcare setting to make sure that your little ones are truly inspired. I provide a consultative, personal service to make the shopping experience easy and flawless for you, your event attendees or party guests.
In addition to a wide selection of fiction, non-fiction and gift books for babies right through to young adults, I can also (upon request) provide complimentary activities for your children or guests including colouring, simple crafts and story time and story explorations. Alternatively, I can come equipped with giveaways and games for the grown-ups for those evening home parties that allow you to shop in peace, perhaps with wine!
To find out more about whether my services would be a fit for you, or if you're open to exploring more about becoming an organiser yourself, do get in touch. I'm always open to a range of events and ideas as well as new ways of working with people. If it involves capturing the imaginations of more children by helping to put these beautiful books in their hands, then I'm in!
