The Inspiring Story of How We Started
I was a stay at home mother of two boys ages 2 and 3. I heard about a princess who came to a friend’s house, and all she did was paint nails. I started thinking; with my background in acting and as a play therapist for children, I was passionate about inspiring creativity in children. Suddenly it all came together. I designed a program and a story that would inspire and encourage children. My goal was to teach children social skills through my stories. I found a costume designer and with the help of a friend, I designed my website. Within weeks my site became the top of Google without my signing up for it. It was as if it was meant to be. After a couple of years I stopped working as a social worker and started working as a full time princess!
Our Mission Statement
We believe in encouraging children’s imagination. Drama and creative exercises help children to learn; to grow emotionally, to gain self confidence; to relate positively towards other and to think independently. The Fairytale Princess encourages children to express their creative lives through drama, dance and music.
