Established in 2005, we train people passionate about early years education to lead our drama and imaginative play programmes and activities. We create award-winning resources and training for educators, parents, and entrepreneurs
We believe drama should play a part in every child’s life, but we don’t want to create child actors. All our activities are designed to ignite children’s imaginations while developing their life skills—skills they need to lead happy and successful lives—through play.
Do you work in the early years and wish you could adopt a more playful approach to your practice? Are you searching for strategies to help children regulate their emotions and communicate more effectively? Do recognise the value of drama but are unsure where to start?
You don’t have to be a drama ‘expert’ to deliver our award-winning curriculum, ‘Dip into Drama’. With 78 easy to follow lesson plans and prerecorded training, anyone, no matter what their experience of drama can quickly learn how to lead imaginative play and provide opportunities for children to work towards their early learning goals.

The power of drama and imaginative play
Drama is one of the most powerful ways to develop life skills. Pretend play accelerates language, nurtures empathy, builds confidence and teaches children about the world. It targets teamwork and builds resilience and self-esteem. Our classes meet the current requirements of the NationalCurriculum, specifically the three Prime Areas of Learning: Communication and language, Personal, social and emotional development, and Physical skills.
