Drama and imaginative play training and resources for Early Years practitioners 

Since 2005, we’ve trained hundreds of practitioners how to lead drama and imaginative play activities using our techniques and resources.

We offer both online and in-person training options, all of which: 

  • Are appropriate for everyone – even those who are naturally shy
  • Are underpinned by the DfE professional development standards
  • Have been rated 5* by teachers, students, EYPs, EYOs and other early years professionals

Our techniques and resources enable early years practitioners across the UK to deliver the current requirements of their curriculum - the National Curriculum (England)Curriculum for Wales, and The Curriculum for Excellence (Scotland), and to deliver engaging content that supports the areas of learning. 

All of our techniques work for children aged 3 - 5, many of our resources have been developed for children from around 2, and many older children respond eagerly to our approach.

UNICEFWHO, and UNESCO all list problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, decision-making, creative thinking, interpersonal skills, self-awareness, empathy, coping with stress, and managing emotions as the ten core skills children need to lead happy, healthy and successful lives. 

We can teach you how to target the development of these exact skills in your preschool children, using our tried and tested approach and our award-winning resources. 




We're all different! And many people start their training feeling reserved, self-conscious, or unable to imagine themselves ever 'doing drama' with young children. This doesn't last long! Our trainers are highly skilled at putting practitioners at  ease and we promise that because our techniques are easy to master, and don't require anyone to be a 'good actor', even the most reticent will soon feel confident, excited, and ready to integrate our approach into their practice.
