WHO ARE WE?
Laura - Founder of Made to be Messy
Made to be Messy was born out of a love for all things sensory play.
With a lifelong love of working with children, two children of my own, previous experience in childcare and being actively involved in our community playgroup, I found a love for messy play experiences and the opportunity they give all children to explore, learn and discover.
I am all about creating a fun and safe environment for you and your little ones to explore. I hold a current Working with Children's Card, National Police Clearance and First Aid accreditation as well as being fully insured.
I cannot wait to welcome you to one of our sessions!
THE BENEFITS OF MESSY/SENSORY PLAY
Multi-sensory play is incredibly beneficial to early childhood development.
It gives children the opportunity to practice and refine their fine and gross motor skills and supports cognitive development and thinking.
The possibilities for development of language and communication are enhanced by sensory play. Children can build social and emotional awareness which also encourages a positive attitude towards new experiences.
Messy play enables risk taking and experimenting in a safe environment and teaches cause and effect. Children are free to explore at their own pace and in their own style. There is no right or wrong way to play and as such messy play is all inclusive.
