About Little Learners

Little Learners is a multi award-winning children’s activity provider which offers educational messy play classes for babies to preschoolers. It was created and founded by a qualified primary teacher who 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 messy play 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.

Little Learners’ aim is to make writing fun and encourage every child to MAKE THEIR MARK!

What They Offer

Little Learners is a unique and exciting mark making class devised by a qualified teacher. It is designed for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to learn to write through play. Its aim is to develop children’s pre-writing motor skills, as well as their physical development (taking full account of EYFS guidance).

Physical development and mark making are vital skills to obtain in order for children to begin to grip objects, hold a pencil and eventually write. Little Learners classes help to prepare little ones for nursery and school by strengthening gross and fine motor skills, core strength and coordination.

A simple pre-writing program called The Mark Makers is followed which involves learning four types of ‘mark’. These four marks appear in letters, numbers, shape & pattern. Children develop their mark making skills every session by learning and practicing the ‘mark of the week’.

In addition to classes, you can also offer parents bespoke Little Learners parties, events and work in schools and educational settings.
