About me

Hi I’m Jen. I thoroughly enjoy being a mummy to my two lovely little girls Holly and Marnie. I love providing mark making classes in Manchester!

I am a qualified Primary School teacher with particular passion for early writing, Special Educational Needs and pastoral care. I love working with children and families! I get to use the skills I developed as a teacher to deliver and run Little Learners.

Involving your child in mark-making and educational messy play activities can develop their early writing skills, core strength, coordination, fine and gross motor skills, social skills and more!

My Little Learners sessions provide a FUN, friendly and relaxed environment for you to come and spend some quality time with your little one.

Come and join in; let’s make marks and get messy (and I’ll do all the cleaning up!)!

I look forward to meeting you!

Party Packages

Did you know I host Little Learners birthday parties?! We can tailor our parties to your child’s interests and favourite characters/theme!  We also offer our popular ‘cake smash’ trays which make fabulous photo opportunities to mark your little one’s birthday!

The party can be held in a venue of your choice. I bring all the equipment, lead the session and clear away afterwards!

Reviews & Recommendations


“Little Learners, we have been going for 4 weeks and we absolutely LOVE it – Jen who runs the class is fantastic and Lily gets so much from it, she loves exploring and getting messy every week mark making and learning with different materials, textures and objects. It’s FANTASTIC!!!” Claire


“Absolutely brilliant class. My 13 month old loves getting messy with all the activities and I really get a lot out of it too. Such a lovely, friendly group. Thoroughly recommend!” Kate


“I’ve been taking my little girl for 2 weeks now and we both absolutely love it! She’s already coming on leaps and bounds with regards to playing, interacting with others, exploring a variety of materials and with help making the shapes. Jen is such a lovely lady who made me feel welcomed and comfortable during both sessions. I’m relatively new to playgroups and this is my favourite one for Ella because not only is she playing she’s learning new skills each week. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for more of Jen’s groups near my area. Thank you Jen ” Chelsea


“Matilda really enjoys messy play, Jen is amazing with the kids and makes the parents feel very welcome. It’s different every week so the children are learning through play. Very well organised, thanks Jen x” Cheryl


“Little learners is just fab! My little boy has been coming since the Worsley class started and he’s one of the oldest being nearly 4. The class is brilliant for babies with all the sensory play right through to Archie’s age of learning to actually make marks into letters and numbers! Jen is so imaginative and makes all the children (and parents) feel so welcome! Thanks for giving me and my son a class where we can be messy together whilst helping him learn too!” Dan


“Dora has been going to Little Learners sessions for over 18 months now. The mark making messy-filled group is great for her development socially, as well as helping her pre-writing skills and generally just being lots of fun! She couldn’t wait to take her little sister along who seems to love it too. Daddy also enjoys the gossiping and eating biscuits!” Gem
