About me

Meet Brooke

Owner & Class Leader

Brooke Filisetti owner of little messy learners hobart
I’m a wife to Andrew,  mummy to our nearly 2 year old daughter Haddie, and we have another little one on the way! You will see Haddie at some of our classes and she sure knows how to welcome a crowd. Haddie is what we call a Heart Kid, this simply means Haddie’s heart is in need of some extra medical loving. Haddie’s special heart was the reason I reflected on my personal career and went searching for a profession that could support us both. The search led me to find Little Messy Learners Australia, I knew immediately that this was the gem we and the families of Hobart need.
I hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care and have over a decade of experience working with children under the age of 5.
I’m passionate about creating positive learning environments for children to explore and thrive in. I look forward to sharing my understanding of early childhood education through messy play and mark making!

Our Messy Play and Mark Making Program runs Wednesday and Thursday mornings at Lindisfarne Community Activities Centre.

At each of our sessions families will learn about one of our four Mark Makers, our Mark Makers encourage early exposure to writing by mark making.

Messy Monday is a hands on sensory experiences for children 5 months to 5 years. Our Messy Monday program is run in partnership with Kingdom Coffee Cafe in Kingston and is located at 1/16 Freeman Street. The large lounge area at the back of the café is a great addition for our messy play classes! Messy Monday’s run every 3 weeks. Bookings are essential and can be made via our Class4Kids booking system.

Our fun and interactive classes start at 10am with music, dancing, and our favourite BUBBLES! When our bodies have warmed up from all the dancing and movement we enter the messy play zone! Children are invite to explore our themed sensory trays at their own pace and in their own ways. As children play families can take advantage of the lounge area and drink their hot coffees, a rare occurrence in my household.

A Messy Monday pass is $18.50
