About me

Have you been looking for Messy Play Classes in Longfield & Sevenoaks? Look no further!

Hi I’m Helen and I am a graduate in Early Childhood Studies and have many years of experience working with pre-schoolers.

I’d love for you to join me and my one-year-old son for Messy Play Classes in Longfield & Sevenoaks.

I think play is the very best way for very young children to learn important skills they will need as they grow up and go to school. Play is great for building brain pathways for thinking, creativity, empathy and many other lifelong skills. Messy play gives children an opportunity to explore new materials fostering their imagination and curiosity.

Baby and toddler groups are vital to providing young children and their parents the chance to build skills together and have fun along the way. Having my own three children prior to, during and now post COVID, has really made me recognise and appreciate the important role groups and classes can play in supporting development. I missed them so much during the first few months of my daughters’ life and I hadn’t appreciated how many groups I took my eldest, who is now five, to and how much he got out of it!

I’m really excited to bring Little Learners to the area and help your little ones to grow and learn in a safe, relaxed and most importantly fun environment. Because what is life without a little mess?

Our Feedback, Reviews and Recommendations for Messy Play Classes in Longfield & Sevenoaks


“My daughter and I have been attending little learners Knockholt class since Helen first started doing them! My daughter was about 1 I think when we first started she is now 3 and half and still absolutely loves the class. Helen is a lovely teacher inside and out and always makes the setups so exciting and different for the children with diff themes each week. You can tell she has such a passion for her classes and also the children who attend she is always interacting with them which is lovely ☺️ if you are looking for a class for your littles to get messy and creative and not have to deal with the clean up at home (which is a win win 🤣) I would highly recommend little learners 💖x”

“We absolutely love attending Helen’s classes, she is so enthusiastic and friendly and always makes it so much fun! Couldn’t recommend more! 🤗”

“Helen’s classes are so welcoming and inclusive. She puts such a lot of effort in to the themes and is so creative. Our Little Learners session has been a highlight of our week and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a baby or toddler class. My eldest is going to preschool in September and we are really going to miss making messy cakes and chatting to the other Mums and babies. Thank you for such a lovely experience.”

Sarah B



“Helen is so warm and welcoming. My little one is full of curiosity and smiles as we learn great motor skills and obviously sharing/social aspects. I originally had concerns about attending as lots of groups are seemingly “mother and child” but me and little one have made great friends. Signed up for life!”

“Helen is extremely enthusiastic and puts a lot of effort into each tray for the week. My daughter loves messy play on a Friday in West Kingsdown, the hall is nice and large, there is ample parking on site and the time is perfect for the school run in the morning. Even my older daughter (7yo) enjoys coming to the special sessions!

Update: we coming to our last term with Helen at Little learners as my daughter starts school in September. Helen has provided a creative space for myself and my daughter to bond and it means you dont have to do messy play at home! Unless you buy the slime, which we do all the time!”

“All 3 of my children have loved Little Learners. It’s a relatively simple set up, so it’s not too overwhelming for a young baby, but the activities are very open so older children are still engaged for the whole session. Babies and toddlers get an amazingly varied sensory experience – different colours, shapes, smells and tastes to explore, while older toddlers can learn about letter formation and more controlled mark making. My eldest still enjoyed going during the school holidays once she was in reception, and enjoyed the different themes (which I have to admit my youngers ones were pretty oblivious to).

Do bring a change of clothes and a LOT of wipes!”

“A wonderful messy class! My little boy is 8 months old, and loved the opportunity to explore. Helen was a great teacher – very inclusive and welcoming! I’d highly recommend!”

Jessica H



“Thanks so much Helen for a great Christmas special! The photos you took are great. My husband never takes photos of me with my son so it’s nice to have proof that I was actually around haha.”

Lauren L



“We have the best time at these classes. I very rarely do messy play things at home as my little boy can have quite a short attention span, so these classes are perfect for him to explore different textures without me being on edge about tidying up. The various trays keep him interested for the whole class and he often makes a new friend by the end of the class!”

Katie G



“After coming to Little Learners group for a while we decided it would be a great idea for my sons 1st birthday party. And it was such a hit! All of the children aged right up to 10 loved it! Helen was so creative and made lovely jungle themed messy trays, one of which was personalised with pictures of my son. Will definitely be booking again!”

Stephanie D



“We love messy play with Helen, my son and I have been coming since he was 18 months and it’s great for him to explore something we couldn’t re create at home!”

Amy B



“My 2 year old daughter loves this class, great variety of activities and Helen who runs the class is fab! Would highly recommend!”

Melanie W



“My daughter absolutely loves these classes and Helen is brilliant as well, she has grown so much in confidence and has no fear of trying new things thanks to little learners”

Louise B



“We love attending our little learners classes. My little boy is only 9 months and learning by playing and making a mess has been one of the most wonderful developmental things we have done. As well as meeting other little ones and lovely Helen who runs them. I can’t recommend her classes enough. We love it x”

Emilou F



“My daughter absolutely loves her messy play sessions, Helen is so welcoming and always plans great activities that get her exploring. We have a fantastic time and I love seeing the joy in her face when she start to play in all the different trays.”
