Classes in your local area
Pyjama Drama deliver classes for children from 6 months to 7 years; age differentiated to ensure activities are perfect for each child’s developmental stage. We run both weekly classes and activities throughout school holidays.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A CLASS
In all our classes children sing, dance, play games and pretend. We have hundreds of different themes covering a wide range of topics. One week we may fly to the moon, the next take our poorly dog to the vets and the next swim in the ocean with a friendly shark. Your child can join Pyjama Drama at age 6 months and attend every week up to the age of 7, without ever repeating the same session!
WHAT CHILDREN LEARN
Pyjama Drama helps children learn about their world in a safe environment.
So, as we make a plan to set Pirate Pat free from his captors we're learning that we can be brave and as we tiptoe through the jungle past that sleeping lion we're learning to be cautious. Looking after the poorly tadpoles help us develop empathy. Singing with our friends around the campfire nurtures confidence. Working as a doctor for the day teaches us lots of new words so develops our language and communication skills, and waiting in line to buy a rainbow flavoured ice-cream helps us to understand patience, as well as teaching us the importance of taking turns!
And Pyjama Drama doesn't just develop social skills; our classes are ideal for helping young children develop their physical skills too. Walking the tightrope in the Big Top helps us to master balancing, being a grasshopper strengthens our leg muscles, taking part in the Olympics enhances our fitness...
We don't use props and costumes (we don't need them), and we aren't trying to train child actors either. Pyjama Drama harnesses the power of the imagination to nurture confident, expressive, curious and happy children. Take a look at how...
WHAT THE GROWNUPS DO DURING A CLASS
Please rest assured you'll never be asked to do anything that makes you feel silly (that's our job!), but whether your child is a little shy or a natural extrovert, they'll benefit from you being in the class with them having fun. You'll also learn some new games that you might like to play at home. As your child grows in confidence, you may take a step back from some parts of the class, but we do ask that parents refrain from talking amongst themselves as it can be very distracting for the children.
HOW MUCH CLASSES COST
Classes cost around £5.00 each, with a sibling discount usually available. There are some variations regionally. For exact prices, please check details of individual classes when searching for a class near you.
HOW TO BOOK A CLASS OR SEND AN ENQUIRY
You can search for your local classes here. All class listings contain information about your Pyjama Drama leader, as well as details of how to send them a message if you have any questions. If you want to go ahead and book a class, complete the simple booking form and your local leader will be in touch to confirm your place and to request payment.
Customers joining a weekly class initially do so on a three-week trial. Pyjama Drama has been shown to have real demonstrable benefit for a child’s development, and the effect is cumulative. This is why we offer a no-obligation trial which allows you the opportunity to experience the real value of our classes and provides a much clearer picture of how they can help to boost your child's development.
WHERE AND WHEN
Our classes are run across the UK by our dedicated and highly skilled Pyjama Drama leaders. Depending on where you live, classes run both during the week and at the weekend. We also have classes and Interactive Performances which take place during the school holidays.
