Claire Russell is the founder of playHOORAY! She lives in Nottingham with her energetic husband Ben, vehicle-loving, five-year-old son Mason and an extremely handsome flat-coated retriever Archie.
Claire launched playHOORAY! in 2015 after having her baby and finding the days at home lovely but long. As an Early Years Specialist, Claire had her knowledge of play and child development to fill her days and decided she wanted to help other parents and carers in the same situation. Not only does Claire like to share simple activity ideas but also educate and empower parents too. playHOORAY! has grown to become an online community of over 100,000 parents, carers and educators of babies and young children with play at the heart of it!
