Hi, I’m Antonia, I’m 28 and have 2 gorgeous little girls called Adrianna and Amara. I joined Little Learners after attending Rachel’s Friday class at Gateshead Leisure Centre when Adrianna was just 5 months old. When the opportunity came to become a Franchisee in the Gateshead West area I jumped at it!
Since having Adrianna I have been on a real personal journey. She has helped me develop a real passion for children’s learning and development. I have experienced first hand the benefits of Little Learners mark making classes and the importance of physical development in babies and toddlers. Not only that, but I feel Little Learners helped me to build my confidence as a new mum.
One of my main aims in running my classes is to provide a warm and welcoming class for all parents and carers; a class which offers support and guidance, a place to meet other parents and the best learning opportunities for their children within a safe and friendly environment.
I love hosting Little Learners birthday parties! Did you know we can tailor our parties to your child’s interests and favourite characters? A ‘cake smash’ party is very popular and we have also catered to themes such as Peppa Pig, Marvel Superheroes and ‘Super Messy’ which included all our class favourites.
The party room typically will be set up with (themed) messy trays, sensory play, painting and drawing stations, play dough, crafts and dance area. Our party packages start from £130 for up to 20 children and 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?
This is one of the best baby groups we have been to. I highly recommend this to anyone with little ones who like to get messy. There are a range of activities each week for little ones to explore, be creative and socialise with other babies. The amount of time and effort Antonia and her family put into making this group a success is amazing. We are going to miss our weekly messy play group so much!The only reason we can’t return for another term is because I’m going back to work otherwise we would be signing up again! – Jill Griffiths
I love it. Sienna loves it even more. It’s the one class we wouldn’t miss! Antonia is great at running the class! – Lyndsay Mallaburn
Fantastic group and such a lovely way to let babies and toddlers explore and have so much messy fun , my grandson Ellis absolutely loves his time there xxx – Anne Goldie
I love this place! My little girl was 7 month when I took her here and within the 3rd week she was stuck in and loving it!! The development of her fine and gross motor skill already is absolutely outstanding. Everyone is so friendly and the children play and share nicely. Nothing is a trouble, Antonia and her Dad go above and beyond for your children and yourself. Brooke absolutely loves coming here every week and gets herself all messy from head to toe. Everything here is child friendly and the messy food trays are always child friendly for your child to taste/eat. Thank you so much Antonia. Looking forward to October term and then the Halloween party. Xxxx – Lauren Mayes
