Meet Team Messy Monkeys

Home Meet Team Messy Monkeys
meet our team 
messy monkeys was founded by two mums waaaay back in April 2010 in response to their own kids’ exploration into the wonderful world of messy play!  There’s now a fantastic team of franchisees running their own messy monkeys classes, spreading our unique brand of messy play far and wide 🙂 

If you’d like to learn about running a messy monkeys business or have any other questions please contact us and we’ll be sure to help.
