About me

Little Messy Learners is an award winning educational messy play class aimed at giving children 5 months to 4 years old the opportunity to develop pre-writing skills through child led messy play activities.

 My name is Jenny and I live in Mandurah with my husband and two girls, aged 5 and 2.
Since having both my girls I hadn’t found a career that really inspired me. Instead, I became involved with different playgroups, children’s activities and allowing my kids to mess up my house everyday having fun and despite the cleaning up I loved it!

As a parent, especially one with a Pre-school aged child, I can see firsthand the importance of mark making and the positive impact it can have on a child’s writing skills as they get older. But I strongly believe that this development must be led by the child in a fun and stimulating environment, which is exactly what Little Messy Learners is all about and that’s why I am so excited to be on this journey!

I can’t wait for you and your children to join me and the messy mark makers for some fun at my Mandurah messy play classes!

About my Mandurah Messy Play classes

When your child attends a Little Messy Learners class they will be using their hands, fingers, feet and toes to make their mark in lots of fun messy play activities!

We will be following our ‘Mark Making’ characters, Lional, Archie, Ziggy and Swirlo through lots of fun playtime. The ‘Mark Makers’ will help to teach your child, in a fun and engaging way, the beginnings of pre-writing skills.

In the class we will include dancing, messy play activities and a pack away game; all these activities are structured to ensure you child is developing core muscles, enhancing their gross and fine motor skills and most importantly, having fun and learning in their own time!

I understand that not all children enjoy getting messy, but don’t worry, there are different acitivites in the class to suit all children, including messy play trays, dry play trays, painting, playdough,  coloring and fine motor activities. So any child can attend and have fun!

Please see my booking section for more information or follow me on Facebook.

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE

To my awesome Little Messy Learners community,

I have made the very hard decision today to postpone all classes and events until further notice. This will be reviewed again in 4 weeks time (effective 18th March 2020).

Although I still believe the risk is very low for the classes, I do not feel it would be fair or in your best interest to attend if you are concerned about attending non essential activities with your little ones and your families.

I have sent a separate message to everyone who is booked into an upcoming class and advised that all classes which have been paid for can be transferred to an alternative class when the schedule resumes.

At this stage, any birthday bookings will still be proceeding, as long as the host feels comfortable in doing so.

I hope in this worrying time, we can all find a way to help out our community and support people who are struggling. With that in mind, I will still be donating the same amount of food produce to the Food Bank in Mandurah as if classes were going ahead.

I will also be posting regular activities that you can do with your little ones at home so keep an eye out for some fun posts!

Thank you for your ongoing support and I look forward to getting messy with you all again soon.

Reviews & Recommendations

My three girls aged 5 y.o., 3 y.o., and 6 months old all had a blast at a Little Messy Learners Birthday Party recently. I was amazed at the wide range of activities suitable for all ages and the care and thought that went into creating a beautiful, fun atmosphere.

Thank you so much Jenny and Little Messy Learners! This was the absolute BEST thing to have at a birthday party! My daughter Lola thoroughly enjoyed getting messy on her 1st birthday! It was so entertaining for kids of all ages! Jenny went above and beyond to make Lola’s farm themed birthday a huge success, all my friends can’t stop talking about how brilliant it was to have you there! Plus being a teacher I love how educational this play is without the kids knowing it!! I can’t thank you enough, I would highly recommend Little Messy Learners to any parents who want entertainment at their child’s birthday party! XOX

My 2 year old Son doesn’t like to get messy, however we have been twice and he can adventure around the room in his own time and over the course of the hour he gets more comfortable and has a great time.
Love We can come and play and not worry about the mess.

Thank you so much Jen for Henry’s 2nd birthday party, he & his friends had an awesome time. Children’s birthday parties have always filled me with fear, but Jen made it completely effortless which meant that I could focus on the important things like my little boy & having fun. We went for a zoo/safari theme because my little boy loves animals, wow I was completely blown away by the creativity & effort that goes in to the trays! They all had different textures/theme/activity, they were all fun & they each were a work of art in themselves. My little boy can sometimes be a bit reserved when it comes to getting his hands dirty, but the way Jen had organised the trays & tailored them to Henry’s likes, he & his friends loved getting stuck straight in & getting messy. Jen also provides party bags which were fantastic, with creative activities for the kids to enjoy at home. At the end Jen was meticulous at cleaning up afterwards, you would not face even known 12 children had been playing & messy play at that! Thank you so so much, I will definitely be having another Little Messy Learners birthday party & will try out some lessons too 🥰
