I'm Lucy and I live in East Hanningfield with my husband and two children, Fraser aged 5 and Georgia 19 months and I began running Little City Chelmsford when Georgia was just 5 months old!

Back in December 2018, I attended a Little City session in Earl's Colne with Fraser and a very big bump. I instantly fell in love, not only with Vicki who radiated friendliness, but also the whole environment was calm, not too busy and I was so impressed with how accessible the experience was for little ones aged 1 up to 5 alike. This was something I hadn't seen in children's classes before and I knew right there and then I wanted to be a part of it.

Call me crazy, seeking out a business opportunity whilst 9 months pregnant with no prior experience in running a franchise! That was the buzz I got from Little City and its a buzz that carries me through to where we are today.

I've always been intrigued by children's learning and development and have worked with children 0-18 for the last 10 years in different capacities. Little City allows me all the best bits of facilitating an environment for children to learn through their play and even better I get to provide a space for parents and carers to enjoy alongside their littlies too!

With so much fabulous feedback and creative ideas from the first two and a half years running, I can' wait to continue providing fun, new and inclusive experiences for you and your little ones!


Little City Online Shop!

The toys we buy for our cities are ones that we think not only look good, provide lots of wonderful play opportunities, but are also are built to last.

All the products available in the online shop are items that we've tried and tested: the kids love them, and we love them so much, we want you to be able to take them home (and we know they're durable as they get a LOT of play at our sessions!)
