I’ve been working with children for over 20 years. I originally started out training in day nurseries and Montessori schools. I then went on to be a childrens’ rep, and I’ve also managed a crèche, been assistant manager of a nursery, run after-school clubs and holiday clubs, worked as a nanny and with children with special educational needs. After all my experience, I think I learnt the most when I become a mummy in 2009 and I now have 5 gorgeous children!
When I was a rep I realised how much I enjoyed a job where it’s all about having as much fun with the children as possible. I loved the games, and realised how spontaneous I can be when dealing with different ages and in different situations. When I returned to the UK I decided that a kids party business would be the best job and very satisfying knowing that I have made a child’s party extra special.
I set up Karla’s Parties in 2004, and the business proved to be a success from the beginning – now most of the party bookings come from recommendations and from people who have booked Karla’s Parties in the past.
I am based in Pembrokeshire, and travel all over the area for children’s parties, wedding creches and babysitting. I am a fun and bubbly person, who is organised, enthusiastic, creative and caring. I love my job – I love making children happy, and seeing children having so much fun. Karla’s Parties is different from other entertainers as we are all big kids and have just as much fun as the children attending the party! We play all the games with the children rather than just telling them what to do; we are very spontaneous and can easily adapt the party to suit the children attending.
I look forward to hearing about your ideas to make your child’s party as special as your child is.
