Curious Little Monkeys Educational Resources was founded by Laura McCartney and Hannah Canavan, two home educating Mums who love to create hands-on, fun learning experiences for their children- and now share them with you!

Who are Laura and Hannah?

Laura is a qualified teacher who now home educates her four beautiful children in West Sussex. Laura founded her small-number ‘Curious Little Monkeys’ learning groups for home educated children in 2016 and now runs STEM sessions, Lego engineering masterclasses, Science workshops and classes in literacy, numeracy, maths and art.

These groups are run from Laura’s beautiful home and garden, with cosy wooden cabins set up for different activities. With her extensive experience in teaching children and running her educational groups, Laura creates brilliant cross-curricular activity packs that are now available on this site!


Hannah is a home education and gentle parenting blogger and previously worked in a Pupil Referral Unit with teenagers. She home educates her three lovely girls in Surrey, helps Laura run the Curious Little Monkeys STEM sessions and loves to travel- she previously took her kids (aged 6, 5 and 2 at the time) backpacking around Asia for a year.

Neither Laura or Hannah have any spare time, but if they did they would both enjoy catching up on sleep, watching back-to-back Netflix series and eating nachos.
