Hello, I’m Adi and one of the Group Leaders at Little Muddy Boots.
After 30 years in the Motor Trade, the birth of our son made me take the drastic but important decision to give up work and become a full time Daddy.
Initially, my wife and I took 9 months joint maternity leave together and travelled around the UK with our wonderfully portable baby. He witnessed his first Golden Eagles, White Tailed Eagles, Ospreys, Crested Tits, Puffins and Otters all before he was 12 weeks old!
After those initial months, my wife returned to her career as a vet and I took on the role of caring for our son and further broadening his experiences…and I loved it!
Meeting NCT friends for coffee, attending baby and toddler classes and visiting wildlife reserves became a normal way to spend our time. It was a wonderful experience and I felt honoured to be accepted as an ‘honorary mum’.
It was during this time that I first experienced Little Muddy Boots and the thought of toddlers learning about the natural world and being creative in nature, in a safe friendly un-pressured setting, was music to my ears.
My son loved the classes and I discovered that I find it very rewarding and engaging to work with children and build their confidence in playing and learning outdoors.
