Activity Idea to keep your Little Messy Learners busy and learning!

Here at Little Messy Learners, we pride ourselves in our non-stop learning through play and have our children soaking in the world of knowledge without them even knowing!

By practising their fine and gross motor skills we are strengthening their muscles and core movements to get them ready for their writing journey. With each activity we perform in our classes, we will be focusing on strengthening particular areas each week so they can go away and be confident when entering big school with all they have learned in our classes.

If you want to find something to do with your Little Messy Learners why don’t you look for your nearest class by clicking here! We hope to see you very soon.
