About The Messy Patch

 

It’s true that children learn best whilst experimenting and discovery the world around them. That is why our classes have been carefully designed to encourage babies and toddlers to explore a wide range of new textures and materials through touch, taste, and smell.

Messy play is an extremely hands-on sensory activity, which enhances children’s cognitive skills, social skills, body control and balance through the large and small movements that they make when they play. Things such as painting, scribbling, mixing, and dancing encourage children to learn early mark making skills, whilst gaining an insight into the basics of science and maths; learning about gravity, cause and effect, the difference between liquids and solids and how different substances react in different situations.

We allow babies and toddlers to gain confidence by using their own imagination rather than giving them structured, adult led activities.  By focusing on the ‘process’ rather than the ‘product’ children gain confidence in their own choices and ideas, rather than simply trying to do what they think adults want them to do.

What parents have said

The messy patch was a real great option for my son’s birthday party. The owner Nadia, is professional, timeous and has a lovely nature. The children loved her! The workshop was interactive, very stimulating and creative. The children were constantly busy and had so much fun! We are now attending the weekly workshops. Other moms were very impressed and I know 5 of them have already booked the messy patch for their children’s birthdays and play dates. I greatly recommend them and will be using them again!

Luna and I absolutely love the messy patch! Every week has a different theme and different activities. The activities are inspired and always so interesting. Nádia is really fantastic at what she does and we look forward to every session every week. Luna went from hating being "messy" to getting so involved in all the activities - I absolutely loved watching her grow through messy play!'

Nadia is absolutely exceptional at what she does! Everything is so organized, professional and beautifully done!! She is so creative and goes way above and beyond! Every child at my daughters 3rd birthday absolutely LOVED the messy play! It’s something so different and fun! That keep the kids entertained for hours!! And the absolutely incredible messy play party packs were a Hit! Every mom messaged me and told me how amazing it was that their kids could just come home and be even more entertained with no sugar hype while they relaxed ! I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone! Thank you Nadia!

My son absolutely LOVES his Messy Patch play time! We always arrive to find that the Messy Patch team has set-up themed and brightly coloured play stations full of different textures and objects for little ones to explore. Nadia is wonderful and rotates through the play experience making sure to spend some time with each child that is there. It's a definite win for me as I get to get out a bit and for my son who gets to socialise, play and get messy!
