Public classes and sessions for schools and nurseries with Rachael Blackburn

My name is Rachael, I'm an Early Years teacher working at an international school in Amsterdam. I love chocolate, Harry Potter, and picnics with my family. My hobbies include cross stitch, amateur dramatics, and playing video games. One day, I hope to own a whole wardrobe full of fancy dress costumes!

Public classes

Providing opportunities for your toddler or preschooler to do drama is one of the most valuable things you can do. Not to prepare them for a life on stage, but because drama supports the development of life skills. Our award-winning approach has been doing just that since 2009.

We won’t ever make you do anything silly (that’s our job!). Our incredible teachers use Pyjama Drama techniques to engage and entertain your children by creating imaginary worlds for them to explore, play, and learn in.

Every session is unique and gives children chance to experience ‘real life’ situations (such as going on a plane or starting school) and fantastical ones (such as having tea with a giant or riding on a magic carpet).

Our classes target life skills that will help your child to make new friends, manage conflict, communicate ideas and feelings, understand others’ emotions, solve problems, make decisions, and believe in themselves - all while developing physical skills, and being lots and lots of fun!

Saturdays at 1:00pm (ages 2 - 4) at Winkelcentrum Groenhof, 1186 DL, Amstelveen: 


5 week block - full term (€70) Book here!
Secure your place in class for the whole of this term. 


3 week block(€45) Book here!
Our 3-week trial gives children the opportunity to try Pyjama Drama before deciding if they'd like to join for the term. Three weeks is the perfect amount of time for children to familiarise themselves with their teacher, their new friends, and the session structure - and for you to begin to see their skills develop! 


Single lesson (€18) Book here!
Looking for an exciting activity as a ‘one-off’? Book a single session and come along to join in with the fun!
