Roleplay; the gateway to a creative and happy childhood

14/04/2015 15:38

14th April 2015

Long before computer consoles, touch pads and interactive media grasped our children’s attention they would happily surround themselves with an array of magical, mystical and, yes completely fabricated settings. With a selection of friends all of whom only ever existed in the land of make believe, but were never considered any less important than real people in the eyes of the child who created them, imagination was and still is, for the most part, an integral portion of the development process in children. Being encouraged to role play is proven to have a positive effect on several crucial areas of child growth including; cognitive development, communication and language development, social development and lastly, physical development.

The importance of play

23/06/2015 15:28

23rd June 2015

Every parent knows that education is important for our little ones once they get to the right age. But play is just as important and it's not only for the very young - let's not forget about it once they start school. Play is vital at any age for developing creativity, problem-solving skills, and self-confidence. It helps children develop socially - partly because they're often interacting with others when they play, but even solo play helps them learn ways to express themselves clearly. It helps them emotionally develop as they learn about relationships and consequences; and of course, physically develop whilst they're running around getting stronger, and keeping fit and healthy without even trying.

4th September 2015

I'm Jo and I run Pyjama Drama in South Wales. Me and my session leaders Millie and Nessa are three bonkers ladies who thought it would be a good idea to run a half marathon together, in order to raise money for the super-duper Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity!

6th June 2016

I've just arrived home after a whirlwind week in Malaysia where I delivered Pyjama Drama to over a hundred different children. Wow, what a week. The weather was glorious, the food divine and the people wonderfully welcoming, but it was my experience teaching the children of Penang that had the biggest impact.
