Leah Chowdhry 

CEO & Founder

Disney lover, globe trotter, marathon runner and a child at heart. I live by the principle of karma, ‘where there is kindness there is goodness. And where there is goodness there is magic’ – Cinderella (Disney, unsurprisingly!)

​Who am I?

I have always had a passion for studying children’s development and since completing my BSc in Childhood Studies, I have worked at EY (you would be surprised how many ‘children’ I met), as well as helping manage a nursery. I worked with children of all ages, including those with special needs.

I set up Pop up, Party & Play for all the parents juggling their family, housework, jobs etc; to  try and make their lives just that bit easier.  Whether you need some assistance for an important event to avoid your child screaming the entirety of the ceremony or even just if your meeting is running slightly over schedule, we are here to help!

Pop up, Party & Play is centred around bringing out a bright future in every child. As Whitney said, ‘I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way’.

Katie Hinksman

Marketing Director

A self-confessed foodie, with a drive to help working parents. My happy place can be found somewhere on a beach with a good read! I live by the quote, ‘Learn from your past and build for your future’​

Who am I?

With a CAM Diploma in Marketing Communications and having worked for a number of established brands, I’m excited to join such a unique and experienced business in the childcare sector. 

As a parent myself, I understand the worry a parent has over the supervision of their child and where to find childcare. I am excited to be working with a brand who are making childcare hassle-free, trusted and professional, even at the last minute!​

Sweeny Fernandes

Events Intern

A lover of anything that suspends belief, I love watching films and reading. And being an English student, I can’t seem to get away from books! When I’m not reading, I’m re-watching episodes of Friends – it never gets old.

Who am I?

As a summer 2019 English graduate, I am excited to delve into a world of writing that doesn’t involve Shakespeare. Reading about all the amazing things both this company and Leah have done, has inspired me to try and make my own mark on the world through my writing.

With first-hand experience of parents making sacrifices for their children, it is great to see that this company is helping to make a difference in their lives.

We have so many amazing nannies but here are just a few of them...
