Making children's learning resources built to last a life time.
Hello and welcome to The Little Coach House!
We are a family run business made up of myself, Jenny, my husband Andy and our three children (and chief product testers) Callum, Finn and Jude. We are based in Lymington, New Forest one of the most beautiful places to live - well we think so anyway.
The Little Coach House was born 3 years ago when we made the big decision to relocate from our busy lives in London to the idyllic countryside. The business started when my husband decided to ditch the commute to London every day and focus on the things he enjoyed most - working with wood and being with us. I was working as a part time primary school teacher and after having our second child decided to stay home and help with our growing business.
Since then we have created a successful line of children's learning resources which we have designed based on my background knowledge of teaching but also on the needs of our children. We are extremely passionate about our products and want to create items that will last a lifetime.
"What the hand does the mind remembers" - Maria Montessori
Our learning resource collection focuses on the first learning skills children need for pre-school and primary education. Mainly focusing on writing and recognising their name, letters of the alphabet, numbers and counting. By using our tracing boards it gives children an opportunity to learn this things in a tactile and sensory way. I have always had an interest in the Montessori way of learning and how it encourages independence and learning in a multi-sensory way. With our own children in primary school and pre-school we see at first-hand what children are expected to do in schools and then can focus on designing resources that will support them.
We use solid beech wood to make all our wooden boards which come fully FSC certified from our local timber merchants. We have a strong belief in using sustainable resources and being an eco-friendly business. Where possible we always use recyclable materials for our products and packaging.
Our current dispatch time is 2-3 weeks.
