Everything we do at Muddy Faces has been developed to support you and your children to be outdoors, through early years, primary and onto adults. Our sustainable approach enables rich and positive experiences, to play, learn and blossom. Being outside and connecting to nature is so important for our physical and mental well-being.
At Muddy Faces we truly believe in what we are building and providing. We are constantly learning and evolving. We know that by being outdoors a profound love and understanding of the natural world can occur which, over time, will help nurture a more sustainable and contented way of living. We believe everybody benefits from more time outdoors and we want to help you to access the outdoor environment effectively and sustainably.
By creating a family-friendly place to work, we have created a flexible, supportive business at Muddy Faces. The majority of our staff, including founder Liz, work part-time with hours to suit their families. The working environment is supportive and everyone is passionate about children, the quality of the products and maintaining an extremely high level of customer service.
Since 2011 we have been working on a number of campaigns that have affected the day-to-day experiences of most early years children in the UK and many abroad. Each year we use profit from the shop to fund these campaigns.
We created our Mud Campaign in 2011 and have been promoting play with natural resources and, in particular, mud, ever since.
