About Messy Monsters

With our exploratory and sensory early childhood education philosophy, we understand that each child has unique needs and interests. We provide the environment and resources your child needs to thrive to the best of their abilities.

When we expose children to different environments and various learning experiences, we allow them to explore their self-awareness and gain a sense of the world around them.


Our Mission

At Messy Monsters, our mission consists of providing a warm and nurturing environment where children feel safe. Our unique Playgroup offers various activities that are specifically designed to encourage each child’s growth. Through cooperative play and creative activities, kids reach their social, emotional and physical milestones naturally and with ease.
