About Glo-Babies

Hi! My name is Michelle. I am the founder and MD of Glo-Babies and I wanted to tell you a bit about myself and how Glo-Babies started.

I studied BA (Hons) Business Studies for 3 years at Birmingham University. Initially, progressing into a retail management programme, I decided quickly that I would like to work with children and so embarked upon a Teaching training course. I gained teaching experience in Primary Schools across West Midlands and Warwickshire working in key stages 1 and 2.  I also completed a year in SEN. It was probably here that the idea of Glo-Babies first hatched. I often had to find alternative methods of teaching to engage the children in my care and using lights and music always seemed to excite which is so important. Learning should always be fun.

My career took a pause to raise my own 4 children and whilst on maternity leave I began to think of how I could balance work and family life whilst also satisfying my skills set, so Glo-Babies began to really take shape. I devised a programme of music and lights that would mindfully deliver a weekly theme in conjunction with the EYFS with the aim of enhancing the participants development, social skills and early enjoyment of learning. I also wanted to provide an environment that was both calming and created a relaxing ambience for the adults to feel welcome and non self-conscious. Having now run Glow-Babies for several months the feedback from new mums and carers has shown that by creating a chilled atmosphere we have had a positive effect on their mental wellbeing.   

Starting in 1 venue in Stratford in September, 2018, we have quickly expanded into a further 8 venues in Tiddington, Warwick, Kenilworth, Shipston, Broom, Baginton, Ettington and Wellesbourne bringing the joy of Glo-Babies to many families in the area. I, too, continue my own development having just recently completed a diploma achieving Distinction in Teaching Mindfulness to Children, which has also given me accreditation with the International Alliance of Holistic Therapists. During lockdown, I have also gained Distinction in Child Psychology and completed a mini first aid course in Covid-19 infection control.

Together we Glow and Grow...

  • Wow! What can I say? I have never seen anything like it. It was amazing and all so easy to sort out. The children absolutely loved it and didnt want to come home! When they eventually did everyone left with a prize! Truly incredible. 

    Highly recommend! 5*
