Little Learners is a multi award-winning children’s activity franchise which aims to teach children early writing skills through messy play. There are now over 30 franchisees running Little Learners classes, parties, events & work in schools across the country.
In 2015, Little Learners was created by Rachel Fay, who, as a former Reception teacher, knew children could arrive in school without the motor skills necessary to hold a pencil, and daunted by attempts at mark-making. This motivated her to develop an innovative model for fun and educational messy play classes that she began to deliver in her local area. Her unique mark making programme included four, cute ‘mark-maker’ characters as well as a companion book so parents and carers can continue the learning at home.
Delighted by how well she was able to fit them around her family life and the huge popularity of the classes, she decided to franchise the business so families all around the UK could access them. New franchisees can now join a friendly and supportive community who have worked to make Little Learners the leading educational messy play provider in the country.
Never complacent though - Little Learners has now reached the other side of the world and they are preparing to say G’day to their first Australian franchisees!
