Hi, I’m Katie and I live in Stockport with my husband and our 6 year old daughter. I run amazing Messy Play Classes in Stockport!
I have been a primary school teacher for the past 10 years. Most of this time has been spent teaching in Reception and recently in Nursery too. I am passionate about Early Years education as I see first-hand the importance of children’s first experiences. Seeing children having fun and learning at the same time is something that I love.
I am so lucky to find a job that I love as much as this. It is amazing that it allows me to continue my love of teaching and spend more time with my family.
Little Learners is a wonderful way to engage young children and develop their physical skills such as core strength and coordination, as well as social and communication skills.
Enjoying messy play sessions helps to develop their early writing skills too. Each week we practise a different shaped mark. As the children practise making marks, we will start to show them how to form letters and numbers. This is great for getting them ready for school!
Classes are all mixed ages with activities to suit babies up to pre-schoolers. This means that they are great for siblings; we also offer a fantastic sibling discount.
My aim is that my classes are relaxed, welcoming and fun, enabling you to spend time with your child and help them to develop skills they will need for the future. In addition it is also a great place to chat and meet other parents.
Come and join in some messy play sessions in Stockport!
I look forward to meeting you and getting messy! Any questions please just ask.
Our Little Learners Parties are loads of fun!
We can tailor sessions to your child’s interests and provide a choice of resources to suit your needs and budget. We can do ‘cake smashes’ which are lots of messy fun! The party can be themed according to your child’s interests, for example, Peppa Pig, Frozen or cars and diggers.
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?

“We really enjoyed ourselves at Little Learners – the theme was The Gingerbread Man and there were so many different experiences for my little girl, including wet and dry sensory trays, craft, playdough, drawing, painting, slushy slime – and more! Katie had put so much care and attention into the set up, and ensured everyone was involved – such brilliant ideas for the kids to play with, and suitable for a wide variety of ages. We’ll definitely be going back for more” Kasia (on hoop) attended with a 2 and a half year old
