Welcome to Messy Play

Messy Play classes offer developmental learning through sensory play with a whole lot of mess thrown in. Our classes give babies, toddlers and preschoolers the opportunity to come together and discover everyday materials in a new and exciting way within a fun, friendly and relaxed environment. Each class has various areas of play spaciously laid out which offer messy/sensory/tactile materials to explore. All materials available will encourage each child to use each of their senses, taste, touch, smell, sight and sound whilst having fun.

At our Messy Play classes you can expect to find, painting, water, sand, dough, gloop, jelly, flour, spaghetti, mud and much more.
Classes last for 1 hour and all children must be accompanied by an adult meaning you can both enjoy the fun of getting messy together.

Why Little People Love Messy Play

Messy Play is a very natural part of childhood, it is a fun and interesting way for children to explore and learn about the world around them. Our Messy Play classes are friendly and relaxed. They allow each child the freedom to choose how they would like to play and allows them to move through the class at their own pace. As children become immersed in the materials whilst using their senses they use their imagination which helps to develop their creative skills through self expression. This child lead non-directive play helps children build confidence and relationships with those around them.
