About me

Hi I’m Kirsty and I’m really excited to be bringing Little Learners to Wearside and Hartlepool.

I am a qualified teacher with over 15 years experience, the latter of which were in Year 1 and Early Years. I’m passionate about early education and believe that providing children with opportunities to develop their social, communication and physical skills through play is the best way to learn. Being an infant teacher I understand the importance of mark making from an early age. The experience and skills taught in mark making are crucial for a child’s development. Little Learners involves your child in mark-making and educational messy play activities which helps to develop their early writing skills, core strength, coordination, fine and gross motor skills, social skills and more!

I enjoy being part of children’s development especially seeing them gain new skills and knowledge, something I find very rewarding. Little Learners offers this and it’s fun too! My aim is to deliver warm, fun, friendly and educational classes, where both children and adults feel welcome and valued. Families will be able to learn about mark making as well as have fun and spend quality time together.
I’ll be running classes throughout Sunderland, Houghton le Spring, Seaham, Peterlee, Hartlepool and nearby areas so join the fun and together we will make our mark.
I look forward to meeting lots of new Mark Makers soon!


*Party Packages*

How about something a bit different for your little one’s birthday, christening or any other celebration?! Did you know we can tailor our parties to your child’s interests or favourite characters?  A ‘cake smash’ party is very popular and we can cater to themes such as Peppa Pig, Unicorns, football, Marvel Superheroes and many, many more. Alternatively, a ‘Super Messy’ includes all our class favourites. You can be as creative as you like or leave it all to us!

The party room would typically be set up with a variety of themed messy and dry trays, sensory play, painting and drawing stations, play dough, crafts and a dance area.  Our party packages start from £90 for up to 15 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? For an additional £25 we can provide a ‘cake smash’ tray and photograph it all for you too!

Had a great time at the Easter event with my 4 year old. There were loads of activities , plenty to amuse babies right up to school age. My little girl wanted to stay “forever”- Deborah Foster


Really enjoyed our first time at little learners. My little boys are 5 and 15months. They loved all of the messy play and plenty of activities to keep them both entertained. Will definitely be booking again. Thank you for a great morning xxx – Julie Wylde
