I offer monthly themed sensory packs that allow children ages 3-6 to explore learning through playing while enhancing fine motors skills.
What inspired you to get into the business you are in today?
Play2learn sensory packs was created while operating my own home licensed childcare business. I have three young children of my own and I thoroughly enjoy finding creative ways for my kids to both play and learn. Play2learn offers fun creative monthly themed sensory packs. The packs allow for sensory exploration while enhancing fine motor skills. I have created the packs with the child in mind where the child can use the items to explore different ways of playing2learn.
How do you define success for yourself and for your business?
I began this business with just a few small pack orders a month. I quickly saw a need for busy childcare providers like myself wanting to offer fun creative ways to play. With play2learn sensory packs I can provide a service to others that allows for more time playing2learn. There is no better joy then seeing a child grow and develop all the while playing! The kids and customer feedback motivate me to find and offer new fun ways of playing2learn. The kids never stop learning and either do I!
How would you use the FedEx SMB Grant money to make a significant impact on your business and/or on others?
The FedEx Small Business Grant would allow me to develop marketing tools to reach teachers and parents of special needs children. It would give me the ability to purchase new products in larger quantities to keep costs down and continue to make my packs affordable to all. The grant would allow me the ability to travel to childcare and special needs conferences to share my packs with others. With the FedEx Small Business Grant I will be able to continue to offer fun safe ways of playing2learn!
