Our mission is simple: help every child make their mark!
Little Learners is a multi award-winning messy play & mark making class created by a qualified teacher. We are so excited to be bringing our sessions to Geronimo this year! Our marquee will be full of messy play, paint, play dough, sand, sensory play, scribbling, crafts, singing and dance - all in a safe and fun environment!! Our experienced Little Learners team will be on hand to help your child make their mark and develop their early writing skills through play. We will take your child on a journey to meet our four Mark Maker characters - Lionel the soldier, Archie the rainbow, Swirlo the cauldron and Ziggy the monster!
What's the aim of Little Learners?
Little Learners 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). A simple early writing programme is followed which involves learning four types of 'mark' that appear in letters, numbers, shape & pattern - these are taught through four fun characters! 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.
