Our mission is simple: help every child make their mark!
Little Learners is an award-winning messy play & mark making class devised by a qualified teacher. It is designed for babies, toddlers and preschoolers to learn to write through play. (Ages 5 months to 5 years) Its aim is to develop children's pre-writing motor skills, as well as their physical development (taking full account of EYFS guidance). Time spent at Little Learners will prepare your child for nursery and reception.
Each session includes messy play, paint, play dough, sand, scribbling, movement and dance - all in a safe and fun environment. A simple pre-writing program is followed which involves learning four types of 'mark' that appear in letters, numbers, shape & pattern - these are taught through four fun characters! Children develop their mark making skills every session by learning and practicing the 'mark' each week through play.
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.
