Hi, my name is Abbii Kent and I'm the founder, owner & manager of Loving Little Minds.
I am a mum to a three year old boy called Theo. I had a very complex pregnancy and then gave birth to a beautiful tiny 4lb 6oz baby but since birth, Theo had digestive problems. After looking up a million ways I could help, I fell in love with the art of baby massage. After learning and seeing all of its wonderful benefits, I tried it with Theo and sure enough it worked wonders for him.
I have a lot of experience in the early years sector having worked within it for eleven years and am now an Early Years Specialist and Play Expert.
My Son Theo has Autism Spectrum Condition, Global Developmental Delay, Sensory Processing Disorder and Severe Learning Difficulties. After focusing a lot of my Early Years career on Special educational needs, its fair to say I am a total advocate for SEND children, and I have passion in getting their voices heard.
Following on from my personal experience with Theo, I am trained as a Baby Massage and Baby Yoga teacher, as well as a Developmental Play Practitioner for children aged 1-3 years, a Soothe Settle & Sleep Consultant, Learn Stretch & Play Instructor, Tummy Time Practitioner, Tree Babies Guide, Nature Play Practitioner, Starting Solids Facilitator and a Toddler Led Toileting Facilitator
My passion is seeing early years children thrive, keeping their wonderful developing brains active in the first 1001 days of life, and putting the power into play.
Hey, my name is Frankie Gulliver and I am the assistant Manager here at Loving Little Minds.
