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 more than six years of experience working with pre-schoolers.

I’d love for you to join me and my one-year-old daughter 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 two children prior to and during 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 son, who is now three, 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


New Ash Green – Term (Autumn 2021)



“We’ve had such a lovely morning at Little Learners. I thought my 5 month old might be too small for messy play, but he absolutely LOVED it! There was a variety of activities and plenty of new sensory experiences for him, and it was wonderful being able to meet up and chat with other parents at groups again. I’ve already booked one of the special events for my older child too.”

New Ash Green – Term (Autumn 2021)



“We thoroughly enjoyed our session at Little Learners and our 2 year old loved getting messy! He normally doesn’t like sensory play but really enjoyed the session and had a go at mark making in every tray!”

Fawkham – Halloween Special (October 2021)



“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”

“We went to our first class in December for a Charity special and even though we had a very tired bubs she managed to get a lot of enjoyment out of the session as well as thinking it was all good to eat 😂 after that session we have now booked to do a term and cannot wait to start!

Thank you Helen you were amazing!”
