Be Part of an Innovative Learning Programme

The messy play class concept followed at Little Learners was created by Rachel Fay, a qualified teacher specialising in Early Year Education. Centred around “The Mark Makers”, the concept is designed to teach kids through messy play.

In each messy play class, kids focus on one of the characters from the “The Mark Makers” via a range of play activities including painting, scribbling, play dough and dancing. Kids use their fingers, hands, feet and toes to make marks, which helps to strengthen their core muscles and develop their motor skills.

Their messy play classes prepare kids for school-age activities such as holding a pencil, forming letters and numbers, and writing.
