- How long do you need to set up?Dependant on type of booking, roughly between 15-30mins.
- Do you have Public Liability Insurance?Yes up to 1 million
- What experience do you have working with children?The performing arts has always been a big passion of mine ever since attended stage coach at a young age. Throughout school I was always very active in the theatre, performing, directing and even working as an usher. I then went on to do a BTEC National Diploma in Performing Arts at sixth form. I studied a lot of units on this course but two that really stood out to me and that I excelled in were; Children’s Theatre and TIE (theatre in education). Through my schooling I had always assisted in lessons with younger students, after school or in my free sessions and knew I loved to teach. I decided to spend 4 months in Iringa, Tanzania, Africa where I helped to home, clothe, feed and educate around 230 orphans. I learnt a lot of valuable teaching skills and life skills in my time there. I have also recently completed my TEFL course meaning I am now a qualified teacher of the English language as well as completing two mindfulness courses, one in teaching and the other in teaching children. All of this cominbened is what has lead me to start Bea Happy Parties. It combines my love for performance and teaching whilst also working with children. I also currently work as teaching assistant/support assistant for children and adults with disabilities! I am first aid and manual handling trained, as well as having just been on an in-depth epilepsy course and currently learning BSL (British Sign Language). I believe that all of this knowledge and training will leave me best equipped to run events for anyone regardless of their needs.
