Little Learners – Gateshead West




Messy play and mark making classes to encourage little ones to learn through play!
Classes consist of messy play, dance, movement, paint, sand, play dough & more. Our classes often sell out so it is advisable to book. We run in 4 or 5 week terms and you can carry over any missed sessions to the next term if needed. Sometimes we offer drop in spaces where you can book and attend for 1 week as a trial.
Monday 1.45pm - Blaydon Youth and Community Centre
Wednesday 1pm - Dunston Community Centre
Friday 10.15am - Greenside Children's Centre

  • Lauren Mayes on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 I love this place! My little girl was 7 month when I took her here and within the 3rd week she was stuck in and loving it!! The development of her fine and gross motor skill already is absolutely outstanding. Everyone is so friendly and the children play and share nicely. Nothing is a trouble, Antonia and her Dad go above and beyond for your children and yourself. Brooke absolutely loves coming here every week and gets herself all messy from head to toe. Everything here is child friendly and the messy food trays are always child friendly for your child to taste/eat. Thank you so much Antonia. Looking forward to October term and then the Halloween party. Xxxx
  • Maria Moody on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 We have been going to Little Learners with Antonia for nearly a year and my little one has always enjoyed the classes. He is now an amazing mark maker who is always ready to show off his skills at any opportunity! I thoroughly recommend these classes for your little one to get messy (and you don't have to clean the place up!), learn their marks and for you both to gain some new friends!
  • Jill Griffiths on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 This is one of the best baby groups we have been to. I highly recommend this to anyone with little ones who like to get messy. There are a range of activities each week for little ones to explore, be creative and socialise with other babies. The amount of time and effort Antonia and her family put into making this group a success is amazing. We are going to miss our weekly messy play group so much!The only reason we can't return for another term is because I'm going back to work otherwise we would be signing up again!
  • Lyndsay Mallaburn on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 I love it. Sienna loves it even more. It’s the one class we wouldn’t miss! Antonia is great at running the class!
  • Gemma Preston on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 By far the best group me and my little Lenny have attended. I keep renewing every term as it's fantastic for Lenny he's only been coming for 2 terms and in that time he's started to make marks and he's only 10 months. We love our session at blaydon and made some lovely friends for Lenny to grow with as they also attend regularly. Antonia has made us feel like part of a little family and we just love her. The sessions Antonia creates for our little ones are fantastic and Lenny really takes advantage of becoming one messy mark maker. So happy we found Little Learners our week wouldn't be the same without it.
  • Susan Burns on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 We had a great time at the little learners Halloween party at Blaydon! Defiantly recommend this to everyone x
  • Gemma Claire Watson on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 Best group I have ever been to. And one of the only ones that's so twin friendly. Highly recommend this group. The staff are the most friendly and helpful people. My girls love going too. Amazing work xxxx
  • Nicola Maughan on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 I love little learners Due to my little boy having reflux he used to eat all dry foods so hated anything wet or runny and we struggled to get him to pick up a carrot etc But little learners he has started going into all the messy trays and has come on brilliantly :-)
  • Holly Benn on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 Love this class! Antonia is fab! Brilliant for little ones AND toddlers xx
  • Gillian Noon on Facebook Tue 21st Nov 2017 Loved this class. Antonia was great with my daughters food allergies. She made sure Sophie could take part in every part of it. I was gutted to stop going when my maternity leave ended. I always recommend this class to my mammy friends xx
