Little Learners is a multi award-winning preschool company which offers educational messy play classes for babies to preschoolers. It was created and founded by Rachel Fay, a qualified primary teacher specialising in Early Years. During maternity leave from work, Rachel designed an innovative mark making programme following the journey of four fun characters – ‘The Mark Makers‘. Children focus on one character each week at Little Learners classes.

Messy play, painting, play dough, scribbling, dance and more are used to encourage children to mark make and learn early writing skills through play. Classes, parties and events are offered and Little Learners also undertake work in schools and early years settings.

At Little Learners your child will be encouraged to use hands, fingers, feet and toes to make marks which will help to strengthen their core muscles and develop their gross and fine motor skills. These skills are vital for holding and controlling a pencil and letter and number formation when they reach school age.

Our aim is to make writing fun and encourage every child to MAKE THEIR MARK!

“I have been taking my grandson since the group started in September, although he was only just over 5 months old then he really enjoyed feeling all the lovely new textures….especially the slimy and squishy ones! The group is very welcoming, and Kate very attentive to all her little learners. It is a lovely safe enviroment for children to learn in. We love it!!”
