About me

Hi! I’m Laura and I live in the Kwinana area with my husband, 12-year-old stepson and 3-year-old daughter.

Kwinana Messy Play

Being a step-mum to a beautiful boy with autism, opened my eyes to the many different and wonderful ways that children can learn and grow. This prompted me to jump ship after many years in logistics and return to university. While I enjoyed all of my early childhood studies, I soon fell in love with the areas of child development and play-based learning.

I love to create an encouraging environment, where children feel free to investigate and learn at their own pace. Every week is a new adventure with so many fun activities, sensations, tools, and marks to explore!


Why not have a Little Messy Learners party?

My party packages start at $200 and include the following:

Three large themed play trays
Two small themed play trays
Playdough activities
Personalised paint board
Painting/colouring activities
A party bag for each child
Photographs of your day taken by me

Reviews & Recommendations

Laura is just fantastic! She makes the whole experience of Little Messy Learners so much fun. My daughter Isabel just loves attending the Monday class in Cockburn. We are currently attending our third term and it just keeps getting better and better. This is so important for her development that we keep returning.
I highly recommend Little Messy Learners. It is the best thing we have given to our little girl 🥰❤️
Laura is absolute star at creating a mountain of fun for children! She worked in difficult weather conditions to make sure my sons birthday was everything I expected and more, he was so thrilled!
The thoughtfulness, care, professionalism and genuine excitement at making every experience/set up so much fun is unmatched. We have also attended permanent and casual classes that have been thoroughly enjoyable! I highly recommend going along and booking Messy Learners for your next themed party!
Been to 2 sessions now and Laura is a wonderful coordinator. The room is set up purposefully for exploration using a range of tools to promote fine motor skills.
There’s music & movement, and of course messy play using hands/fingers/feet/toes/body. It’s a joy to take a step back & watch our wee ones do what they do best- learn through play.
It’s not too messy for the faint of heart, but messy enough to get the sensory experience. Looking forward to the next one at Kwinana Messy Play
Laura was amazing for our sons 2nd birthday ! Couldn’t fault her she was
Professional, prompt and very creative at what she does. She matched all sensory and messy play activities to the theme construction. The kids absolutely adored her and felt comfortable while playing with the activities. Couldn’t recommend her enough !!
Absolutely would recommend!!
Laura has come to our rural town twice now and created an amazing 2nd and 3rd birthday for our little man!!
Laura sets up, packs up and cleans her area after! So parents have minimal to do it’s great!
We most definitely would love to have her back!
