Welcome to the Oswestry, Shrewsbury and North Shropshire team. I will take your little ones on a different adventure every week.
I have always loved performing 'off the stage' and took part in drama in my youth. I have taken my two children, Robert and Charlotte to Pyjama Drama classes and by watching them and other children in the class, I have seen them grow in confidence and above all having FUN with their imaginations.
After being a stay at home mum I wanted a role working with children and I am very interested in child psychology and truly believe that pre-school children coming to Pyjama Drama will help shape and benefit their formative years that are some of the most important developmental years of their lives. The sessions are designed for your child's age range with music, play and drama where you and your child can lose yourselves in the world of imagination.
We love to see children sing, laugh and play and see their imaginations flourish.

Which class is right for your child?
Our thirty minute Dewdrops class is for babies and young toddlers. Raindrops classes are thirty five minutes and are for older toddlers more secure on their feet and who are just beginning to use their imaginations. Rainbows classes are for preschool children and are forty minutes, and Sunbeams children are five to seven years old with their class running for one hour.

People say the nicest things...
"Just a quick note to thank you for Ava’s party. It was brilliant. I thought your enthusiasm and energy were fantastic. The feedback from all the other mums has been wonderful. Ava has also been loving the CD the last week. It’s been on repeat in the car." (February 2016)
"Nyree loves coming every week and enjoys all the games. Jane is really welcoming and friendly, positive and fun! Nyree has learnt lots of new things e.g. open/closed questions, freezeframes." (Saturday Sunbeam class)
"Pyjama Drama has developed the girls' listening skills, social interaction, turn taking, confidence, imagination and they transfer all these skills to their home and nursery play. Attending sessions is the highlight of our week, the songs are sung and requested in the car all the time. Freya imagined ‘tigers running down the street’ and now adores performing in front of others. Scarlet is more shy and PD has helped her become less introvert enabling her to establish new relationships. Lorna, Dec (2016)
"Augustus has become a lot better at independent play since starting and will happily spend an hour playing by himself. He has started to take interest in other children and his speech and understanding has come along brilliantly; I’m certain Pyjama Drama has helped with this!" Polly (Dec 2016)
"Love, Love, Love PD! So glad I’ve been able to come again with my second child! We’d really missed it!" Tori (Dec 2016)
"Jane does an excellent job and is perfect for the role of igniting children’s imagination." (Anon, Dec 2016)
"Meelie enjoys Pyjama Drama, she has improved so much over the last 6 month with concentration. Would definitely recommend to others." Gina (Dec 2016)
"Alastair has had a fabulous time at Pyjama Drama. Jane’s enthusiasm is endless which draws the children in allowing them to let their imaginations and creativity be limitless. Although somewhat boisterous at times, Jane has always been able to pitch the classes at the right level for the class ensuring that everyone is involved no matter their mood on the day. I couldn’t recommend Pyjama Drama highly enough to everyone. Keep up the good work." (Aug 2016)
“George has had a fantastic year with his Pyjama Drama crew who have really helped him bloom in many areas. George has Down's syndrome and hearing delay and when he started he was all over the place. With Jane's support, care and dynamic voice and actions George has now picked up most of it and can sign and say key words relating to the session. This is a massive development. He loves it and often asks to go as we drive past. I can't recommend this class enough for everyone. Thanks for your support and enthusiasm Jane and our fellow pyjama dramaramas who have been lovely, kind and patient!Love from Sarah and George xx” (Aug 2016)
"Jane is a wonderful teacher and you can see from each child's face the excitement they get each week. I've been taking my daughter to Pyjama Drama from the age of 1 and each week I can see her learning more and more. At home she is always showing off her 'thinking face.'" (July 2016)
"'Gobowen All Rounders' began having session with Jane earlier this year and the difference in the children's confidence and imagination is astounding. Jane brings their imaginations to life with her engaging and exciting style of teaching. The children get so excited about their Pyjama Drama sessions. Staff have also learned so much from her. Jane, you are a real inspiration." (July 2016)
"I started bringing my son to Pyjama Drama when he was 16 months old. We both loved it from the first session. Each session is unique and exciting and builds so many skills in our little ones. My son's imagination is amazing for his age and he has developed his patience, turn-taking skills and so much more. Parents get so much out of it too and there's so many songs that we now sing and dance to together at home. Thanks Jane for igniting my little man's imagination." Ali, Mum to Malakai (July 2016)
'‘I really love Pyjama Drama because Jane tells a story and we get to make up the ending for the story which is my favourite bit of the lesson. We also do some drama games with the parachute. I love these sort of lessons most of all, we have fun!'' Rosie aged 7 (Feb 2016)
''My little girl loves Pyjama Drama. She slept in her t-shirt the day she was given it as she refused to take it off. We do a little performance most nights before bed. She learnt all the words to 'Hey Diddle Diddle' just so she could perform it at the next session. We are now working on the next masterpiece! Jane's enthusiasm is infectious! She holds the children's attention far better than other toddler classes we have attended'' Sarah (Oct 2015)
'Thank you so much for the Sunbeam special today, Tilly was positivel...y sparkling with excitement when I arrived to see the performance at the end of the session. All the children had clearly worked hard and immersed themselves in the session whilst having masses of fun too!'' Jennifer Heard (July 2015)
''I just wanted to say thank you for the positive impact that you are having on all our children through Pyjama Drama. We have a variety of Communication & Language Development stages and the progress that is evident for some children is quite remarkable. A few children who would not normally stand up and talk in front of the group are now standing up and singing their chosen song to the whole group with confidence and brilliant expression! I hope that you will be in your role for many years to come as I can't imagine not having our weekly session - the highlight of the children's week.'' Camillia (Nov 2014)
''So I take Lacey to the doctors because she keeps banging her ears. The doctor asks which ear is she banging and I say both of them really. Doctor checks her ears and throat - nothing wrong. Go home and she starts banging them again. Silly mummy realises she's only doing her hair ready for Pyjama Drama!!' Jade de Looze (June 2014)
''When I came back home on Monday my daughters were playing "Pyjama Drama" and they both wanted to be "Jane"! Had a jigsaw part in their hands pretending it was your iPhone or MP3 player and they were making up songs! Couldn't help but joining in! Great end for my first day back at work after the Easter break. Thanks'' Paloma (May 2014)
'‘Wow thank you! Parents have nominated me in the What’s On 4 Awards as the Most Outstanding Activity Leader for the under-fives!’' Jane from Pyjama Drama (March 2014)
''We would like to record our sincere thanks and congratulations for providing such superb entertainment at Kate's fifth birthday party last Sunday. Everyone who attended, (including the parents) enjoyed themselves and we have had some very positive comments passed on to us when we have taken the children to school. One parent was stunned when he checked his watch and realised that you had kept the children interested for almost an hour and a half, whilst one of the boys told his mum that the party was "awesome". We were very pleased with the way you involved everybody and had them "hanging on your every word". You provided just the sort of party we wanted. When we went on a journey in the car yesterday, it was the Pyjama drama CD that both Tom & Kate chose to have played. Thanks again.'' Alison and John (March 2013)
''We all loved Pyjama Drama, Lydia especially. It was refreshing to visit a class which didn’t just go over the same old nursery rhymes.'' Hannah Roberts, mum of Lydia Raindrops (Jan 2013)
''Fantastic, the class structure and content captures the children's imagination perfectly. Your passion and enthusiasm for the classes inspire the children's imagination. The fact that you adapt the drama to fit in with the children's comments and suggestions.It really helps keep them involved and motivated to join in.'' Vicky Land mum of Tabitha Rainbows (Dec 2012)
''The way Jane listens to all the children and encourages them all to join in. I liked the natural progression of classes, the teacher enables the children to be more independent allowing the 'let's pretend' without parent involvement.'' Mum from Rainbows class in Oswestry (Dec 2012)
