From a fellow primary school teacher

My name is Mireia Lopez, I am the owner of Discovery Playtime and a former primary school teacher with a Master's in Educational Psychology and a Certificate in Therapeutic Play Skills.

Working with children of all ages (some of whom with special needs), and raising two wonderful kids of my own, made it very clear to me that learning through play is a necessity. For that reason, I have dedicated myself and my business to providing parents and educators with tried and tested tools that create enjoyable experiences where children can develop basic skills while having fun in an enjoyable, social environment.

 I founded Discovery Playtime in 2007 after devoting 3 years of my career to organising and running hundreds of workshops and events including messy and sensory play sessions, children's entertainment, corporate events, afterschool activities, and so much more.
