About Us

Create A Story

Create a story is designed to enable your child to develop his or her imagination, creative, social, musical and language skills.

Catherine one of our mums said,  "my 3 year old daughter really looks forward to her sessions with Nicola. She enjoys hearing new stories and adores getting into the multi sensory "busy box" activities. Nicola has carefully prepared ...sand, water, ice, feathers, glue, play dough, glitter, plastic animals, paper, scissors,...whatever it is the children are led into a world of fun, and gentle exploration."

Nicola Lythgoe - My background

I am an experienced practising  primary school teacher who for over 20 years has specialised in the early years curriculum.

Create a story is my vision of how young children learn through play and fun. I am passionate about children being immersed in a creative and playful environment where learning can take place without any pressure.

The sessions are individually created so that through play children become immersed in the stories we tell.

Nicola Lythgoe - My qualifications

My formal qualifications are a B.ed from Leeds Polytechnic, an M.A.ed from the Open University, an Advanced Diploma in Language and Literacy, and a Certificate in Play Therapy.

In addition to create a story I offer private individual lessons for children struggling with literacy and maths.  I offer lessons for children who are beginning to learn the piano.

I have experience in working with dyslexic adults and am able to offer individual lessons and support.
