About me


Hi! My name is Sian. I am based in the south of Hampshire and live with my husband and little girl. For the past 14 years I have worked as a primary school teacher, spending just over a decade in Early Years education. Now I will be delivering Messy Play classes in Fareham and Eastleigh.

After having my daughter nearly two years ago I wanted a new challenge that would fit in with family life but still give me the opportunity to work with young children. I came across ‘Little Learners’ in an internet forum and as soon as I looked into the company, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for!

As a passionate Early years practitioner who understands the importance of investigative pre writing skills, I could really see the benefits of the companies aims, goals and ethos. Learning through play is such a key part of Early child development. I love watching how children discover new skills and develop their self confidence to see what else they can achieve. To enable a child to be a confident writer, they need quality experiences to develop their fine motor skills and mark making, which is exactly what Little Learners provides.

I will bring my knowledge and experience to my Little Learners sessions and provide fun and exciting classes which allow your child to make their own discoveries. There will be a warm welcome to all parents, families and carers and create a safe, purposeful environment for all to enjoy.

I look forward to meeting you all at my Little Learners classes, event and parties in Fareham and Eastleigh and helping your little ones to ‘make their mark‘ through Messy Play.

Reviews and Recommendations

“Warm, friendly experience and very professional, lots of activities for little ones to experiment with, great for sensory play”.

Mum of 1 year old – Fair Oak Group


“My son, partner and I really look forward to a Friday morning when we have the opportunity to go to this group and get really stuck in! Our son has an amazing time every week, playing, exploring and creating and we don’t have to deal with the mess afterwards! Win, win!
Sian is a brilliant leader and always brings enthusiasm and a friendly atmosphere to the group. Thoroughly recommend this group if you want your child to still be a toddler and have fun, but also learn something along the way- ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

Let’s Party!

We can provide a fantastic Little Learners party for your little one’s birthday as well as any other occasion.

Once you have decided on your venue of choice, the room would be set up with messy trays based on your chosen theme and lots of sensory play, drawing, playdough and painting. I will bring all the resources needed for the fun to begin, set up each area and lead the session and clear away at the end – taking all the stress away so you can sit back and enjoy spending time with your little one on their special day!

Whether you have a young Peppa Pig fan at home or a dinosaur explorer, I can tailor the party to meet your own child’s interests and wishes. We have a range of party packages to suit different budgets and needs. Party packages can be booked for up to 20 children.

For that extra special treat, how about adding a cake smash messy tray or having a cake smash party? These are great fun for everyone and extremely popular!
