5th January 2017

It's human nature to like praise, to get that pat on the back that lets you know you're doing a good job. When you're running your own business, when you're the boss, sometimes those pats on the back can feel few and far between! That's why the testimonials that our franchisees get from parents and teachers mean so very much, and why being shortlisted for a business award, having been nominated by those very same customers, means more than you can imagine!

This is why we're so excited for our wonderful franchisee, Jane Liddiatt (Shrewsbury & Oswestry) to have been shortlisted for the 'Business for Babes 2017' award, the winner due to be announced at a very grand ceremony in March. Jane's shortlisting recognises the incredible work she does providing Pyjama Drama classes for babies from 6 months old, stimulating their development through imaginative play and unique Pyjama Drama songs and rhymes.

Having recently had the pleasure of watching Jane deliver one of her Dewdrops classes, I can well understand why she's been nominated. Firstly, the babies were hooked! Jane's imagination, facial expression and pure joy of working with little ones shine through when you see her at work. Secondly, the way she involves the parents, making them feel at ease and ensuring they enjoy the session too, is all credit to her. We know the Pyjama Drama programme is wonderful on paper, but it takes a very special person to bring it to life, as you'll know if you've ever seen one of our 30+ franchisees in action.

Good luck Jane! Now get out that sparkly dress and drag out your heels - it's not long till the awards ceremony!
