About me

Hi my name is Sonya and I live in Dundonald with my husband Chris, my 4 year old Daughter Leona and my newborn Son Evan and I run award-winning Belfast Messy Play.

I have always enjoyed spending time with children throughout my life. Becoming a Mummy to Leona and watching how she has grown and developed has made me a very proud parent. She has helped me develop a real passion for children’s learning and development.

When I came across the opportunity to become a Franchisee of Little Learners I was very intrigued and excited to find out more. After looking into what Little Learners do I was enthusiastic to start the classes. Messy Play and Mark Making helping children to develop those important early writing skills through messy play and of course having fun, what’s not to love about this class!! I thought this is my chance to do what you love and enjoy – being around children in a fun, friendly and welcoming environment.

I’ve been running the first EVER Little learners classes in Belfast Tullycarnet Community Centre From May 2019 and in Conlig Community Centre from September 2019. I absolutely love what I do.  Watching the children develop and learn and progress have been so rewarding .  My classes have proved very popular and I hope to be bringing more classes across Belfast and North Down very soon.  Please get in touch with me if you would like more information about what we do.

I also can cater  to birthday parties and events.

I look forward to welcoming you and your little one to one of my classes soon. Let’s have lots of Mark Making Fun!!



Reviews & Recommendations


Great class, educational messy fun. We enjoy meeting the mark markers each week and then getting stuck in. Lewis has grown in confidence since joining this class and his fine motor skills are coming along so well. Sonya does a great job coming up with new things for the kids to get stuck into.


I recommend this 100% my wee boy loves this class and getting messy and playing with new things every week. Sonya and her mum are just so lovely and welcoming and we look forward to coming every week ❤️xxx
