You may have seen our Facebook Live with Jo and Lisa from Ready Steady School back in the summer where they answered all your questions on the first day at school for Reception children. We are delighted to have them back this week as our #StamptasticSmallBizShoutOut ! Their logo is so cool and we loved making their custom stamp for them 😊
We are Jo and Lisa, 2 highly experienced Early Years teachers. After years of teaching in Reception we are well practised at easing children and their families into school. We were able to give our families the skills to support their child through their first year and whilst doing this we noticed a real gap in the market for resources to support this process. We are also aware that many children arrive at school without the necessary skills of independence which feed into a child’s confidence.
In 2015 we set up our company called Ready Steady School which sells educational resources to prepare children for school and supports them throughout their first year. In addition to this we write fortnightly for the Yorkshire Times and run a Facebook page called ‘Starting BIG School in September’.
In 2019 we are looking forward to developing our range further and reaching out to more families that recognise the value of supporting their child’s educational journey.
Recently we have worked hard at reducing our plastic packaging in our resource boxes and have replaced it with eco-friendly alternatives. Our Personalized Stamp allows us to personalise our boxes of crayons and product labels that we attach to some of our resources. It is a quick and eye catching way of increasing brand awareness and we just love to see Tom and Pom, our adorable characters sitting on the wall waving to our little customers!
