About Little Robin Education
The Beginning

I started Little Robin Education because my son was always asking the names of plants and trees and animals in nature, so I started making flashcards for him to use on our daily walks out in nature. ​

Before I became a mum I gained my PhD in Biology from The University of Cambridge, and then became a secondary school biology teacher because I just loved the teaching I'd done during my time in Cambridge. I always knew I wanted to be a stay at home mum, and so I left my job to be with my boys full time.

I missed teaching and when my eldest son showed such an interest in nature, as all children seem to do, I decided to start my own business which would work around my young family.

Where we are now and the future

Two years later and Little Robin Education has grown so much. I have a wonderful community of like-minded mums and educators on Facebook and Instagram, a small team of staff, including my lovely mum who now packs the orders, and best of all I get to see hundreds of photos of your little ones enjoying their cards out in nature!

The future looks bright, with two curricula in development. The Outdoor Science and Nature Curriculum Autumn Term is now available, with the Spring and Summer terms in finalisiation stage. The Eco Curriculum is also being written and should be available in late 2021.

Our Mission Statement and company ethos

"Teach as many children as possible the joys of the species on planet Earth"

I make all the cards myself, taking photos of things we see, or I support photographers and artists when I can't get the photos myself. ​ It was important to me to run an eco-friendly business, so all of the cards are printed on recycled card, the bags are organic cotton and all of my stationery is also printed on recycled card. ​ I really hope you like what you see here!
