Hey, I’m Laura

I am the little mess leader and owner of Little Mess Derry/Londonderry.

I have one husband (more than enough), two teenage kids and two little fur babies who never fail to keep me busy and on my toes.

I have been a special needs classroom assistant for the past 23 years and am extremely passionate about what i do. I have taken this amazing opportunity to run my own business alongside The Little Sensory Co to enable me to offer quality provision for the kids in my area and to ensure a warm, caring and inclusive environment where they can all come have fun and be themselves.

Messy and sensory play are an expressive and creative way for all our kids to learn and develop and I am so very proud to be a part of this amazing journey with you all.

We loved our first session of messy play on Monday, it was great fun getting stuck in and messy, especially with the chocolate, my 8 month old loved it.

Well organised, my little girl loves to get messy and play in all the different areas.

Went to our first session on Monday and it was brilliant. Maggie really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend.

My 3 year old loves coming here!! Its suitable for older kiddies too, which is really refreshing! Especially with baby number 2 on route…I think he will love coming with his little brother in a few months! Thank you Xx.

We came to our first session this morning and so glad we did. Olivia is a mummy’s girl and today she felt comfortable to crawl off on her own. What an amazing place. There is so much to do for little ones. A safe, and secure environment. Can’t wait until next week. Thank you! X.
