My business has grown each year and we now reach 200 families a week

Ruth Morris Award Nominee

The national Creation Station franchise awards will be announced at the 14th annual ‘Creation Station Inspiring Imaginations’ conference in Birmingham on February 6.

Ruth, mum to Connor, 13, and Lexie, seven, said: “My business has grown each year and we now reach 200 families a week through our baby, toddler and afterschool programme.

“I am particularly proud of how many of our original families who began with us when we launched in 2013 are now returning with their new babies, after their first child has graduated to school.

“My original business aim included supporting local women into work and our team now includes seven staff members all delivering outstanding creative experiences for children.”

Sarah Cressall, Creation Station founder and managing director, said: “I’m very proud of all of our network, especially Ruth, for all the work they have put into helping inspire children’s imaginations, which makes judging the awards is really tough.

“Each year our franchise owners are becoming more and more successful and the calibre is really high.”
