About me

I’m Jemma and I own Little Learners Darlington, Richmond & Northallerton. I run classes, events & parties in the area!

I am 29 and I live in Darlington with my husband Phil and our baby daughter Temperance. I have been going along to Little Learners with Temperance since she was just 5 months old and she absolutely loves the classes.

Until my maternity leave I was a Secondary Science and Maths teacher and previous to that I was an academic scientist specialising in developmental neuroscience. Throughout my career I have always enjoyed teaching others, from Undergraduate and PhD students to Secondary aged children, and I really appreciate the impact that good literacy can have on a child’s ability to thrive and learn.

During my sessions I aim to create a warm and fun atmosphere for both the children and their parents where everyone feels welcome. I look forward to meeting lots of new Little Learners in Darlington, Richmond & Northallerton.

Party Packages

We can tailor party packages to your child’s interests and provide a choice of resources to suit your needs and budget. We’ve had lots of fun with a ‘cake smashes’ in the past as well as, for example, Peppa Pig, Frozen and In the Night Garden. The party room typically will be set up with (themed) messy trays, sensory play, painting and drawing stations, play dough, crafts and dance area. Your party can be set up at a venue of your choice – we bring everything required, deliver the session and clear up all the mess afterwards – what could be better?
