About me

Introduction

Hi! My name is Jenny and I live in Mandurah with my husband and two girls, aged 6 and 3.
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 Rockingham Messy Play classes!

About my Mandurah and Rockingham 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.

Reviews & Recommendations

 

My daughter and I came to Messy Little Learners in Greenfields for 5 months. As a mother and educational leader I can not recommend Jenny’s Messy Little Learners classes enough. My daughter loves going to see her, joining in the songs and most of all trying out all the fun and messy activities. These classes may look like it’s just a lot of messy fun (which it is) but it’s also so much more. It’s children socialising, learning turn taking, sharing, sensory development, and mark making the bases to learning to read and write. Jenny always takes time to interact with all children and the clases are just the right size. Plus she does the clearing up!
We are also getting excited to hold our first Messy Play Birthday Party. So It’s a big thumbs up!

I have been bringing my daughter along to Messy Learners for about a year now and it has been lovely watching her confidence grow.
Jenny is a fantastic teacher and all the children love her. Amelia, my daughter, runs in to give her a big hug and is always excited to see her.
Amelia enjoys all the activities but she especially loves the painting, which she ends up covered in by the end and she couldn’t be happier.
I’m an older mum, none of my friends have little ones, so it’s been lovely for myself and Amelia to have others to chat to and play with.
Highly recommend Jenny and her classes to one and all!

Absolutely amazing birthday experience! I’d recommend this to anyone, ages 0-7 will be all entertained, perfect for my daughters 1st birthday, also takes pressure off the parents because the little ones will have endless fun! Thank you so much for going above and beyond

My daughters (age 4 and 2) attended 3 term sessions and a handful of themed special classes with Little Messy Learners Mandurah hosted by Jenny, we even booked a birthday party (although we never held it due to the lockdown). Jenny greets every one with a warm and welcoming smile. The mat sessions to begin classes contain great pre writing and fine motor information  for parents and the songs help to settle the children. The messy trays are interactive for all aged children and each week a new theme and invitations keep the children entertained and engaged.  There is a great balance of ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ activities to ensure all children can participate.
The take home activities are great allowing the children to keep practicing the line making marks. My eldest loved doing her ‘home work’ each week!
We loved attending our sessions, inviting our friends to come along and attend with us.
My eldest daughters favourite class was making potions – bicarbonate ice blocks, coloured vinegar and pipettes! My youngest daughters favourite activity is painting and making a big mess! Thankfully every class had an element of painting involved! A great affordable activity that I could do with both my daughters and we all thoroughly enjoyed every class we did! 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.

We went with a group of friends and would HIGHLY recommend. All the kids had the best time. it was great because they got so messy and enjoyed it without us mums having to do the big clean up (besides the baby 😂) definitely going back.

My son and I experienced our first messy learner event today and we enjoyed it so much. We got to experience hands on sensory activities along with having a nice souvenir to take home. We will definitely come back another time.

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!

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 🥰
