Five awesome feeds that inspire children from Rebecca Dooley, the founder of LLT, an online resource promoting educational London life for children.

‘Instagram has been a wonderful social network to meet new and like-minded people,’ says primary school teacher Rebecca Dooley who set up London’s Little Thinkers, an online resource promoting educational London life for children. ‘Instagram has allowed LLT to grow and I love to share ideas with other passionate people who are equally determined to inspire Little Thinkers. The power of social media is so strong and I have only experienced positive networking through it since setting up LLT.’


LLT hosts educational workshops for Little Thinkers and their newsletter (full of what #LLTrecommends) goes out just in time for each school holiday. ‘Being a teacher myself meant that I wanted to choose educational Instagram pages which inspire and enthuse London’s Little Thinkers. I found it very hard to choose just five as there are so many inspiring people out their running wonderful pages which I look at daily but here goes, here are my chosen five.’
