Early Year Resources

Being a parent or caregiver, you understand how vital it is to provide your child with the best possible start in life.

That's why, as fellow parents and caregivers ourselves, we are thrilled to introduce you to our Early Years Resources at Talking Turtle.

Our story began with two friends – Catherine and Dennis. Catherine, an educator since 1982, opened her first nursery in 1989 and has never looked back. As the years went by, the importance of play and 'toys' fluctuated, which reinforced Catherine's passion for play in children's lives. Eventually, it became time to do something about this, and so the idea of starting her own nursery supply company began.

It wasn't until Catherine expressed her ideas to her friend Dennis, a retail and trade business owner, that Talking Turtle was born. Dennis, a grandfather to four young children, shared Catherine's passionate views on early years education. His experience, distribution network, and warehouse facilities provided the perfect behind-the-scenes setup for talking turtle to take off.

All of us here believe that learning should be a fun, engaging, and exciting experience.
Our toys and resources are hand-picked to help children develop essential skills such as communication, problem-solving, and socialization while having a great time.

We also recognise that selecting the right resources for your child can be daunting, which is why we've made it as simple as possible for you to make informed choices. Our unique "hardness scale" makes it easy for you to pick the best resources for different areas of your home or nursery, and our detailed product descriptions, high-quality photographs, and product videos provide a clear understanding of what you're purchasing.

Moreover, we know that fast and free delivery, easy ordering, and flexible payment options are crucial to you. That's why we offer all of these benefits and more.
