Consett and Stanley Messy Play

Alicia Checksfield Consett and Stanley Franchisee.

Alicia has joined the Clart about team after enjoying classes with her second daughter and seeing first hand the benefits that messy play has for mum, baby and dad. Alicia has a background in care having worked as a care home supervisor and holds an NVQ level 2 and 3 in health and social care.

Clart About promotes the physical, emotional and social development of children. We focus our work with parents by offering a stimulative play environment to enhance and promote positive bonding experiences between children and parents.

Parents are a primary part of our play sessions. When parents enter into their child’s world of play, the child grows with more confidence to explore and learn thus creating a lasting bond between them which helps the overall well-being of mother and child.
Happy Babies… Happy Mam’s… Happy Mam’s… Happy Babies.

Messy Play

is a fun, tactile and interesting way for children to explore and learn about the world around them. A wide range of materials and weekly themes are used at each of our sessions. We aim to provide less stress for parent’s who come along to our sessions as we clean up the mess that isn’t always desired at home!

So it’s not just about making a mess right? Messy Play is educational too!

Suitable for babies from 6 months to pre-school aged.

All of the sessions are planned to follow the Early Years Foundation stage so that children are learning through play.
