Classes in childcare, early leaning & family centres
WHAT DO WE DO? We visit childcare, early learning and family centres, including kindergartens and preschools, delivering our unique, age-differentiated imaginative play & drama sessions.
HOW OFTEN DO WE VISIT? Pyjama Drama can visit weekly or fortnightly, or even just once in a while to help celebrate Christmas, Easter, or Children's Book Week.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A SESSION? Children sing and dance, play games and pretend; every session is lots of fun! We don't use elaborate props and costumes (we don't need them), and we aren't trying to train child actors. Instead, Pyjama Drama harnesses the power of the imagination. We have hundreds of different themes available; in fact, if children start Pyjama Drama at 6 months and end at 7 years, they won't get the same session twice!
WHAT ARE THE LEARNING OUTCOMES? Our classes develop social skills such as communication, cooperation, confidence and concentration. We work closely with managers and staff, as well as parents, to ensure what we offer is inclusive, fun and educationally sound, as well as helping to reinforce and support the learning taking already taking place in each setting. Many of our sessions have been developed to introduce important messages such as how to safely cross the road, how to stay safe in the sun, or how to stay safe at the beach. And many help children to learn about and explore their world; starting big school, going to the dentist or looking after a new baby brother or sister for example.
We can combine Raindrops and Rainbows (if required) and depending on numbers.
HOW MANY CHILDREN IN A CLASS? Our sessions work best for between 12-16 children, however we do provide our sessions for larger (or smaller) groups. If numbers grow larger than 20 children in a room, it is important to review regularly to ensure all children are getting the best out of every session. All children in the room are included in the session and encouraged to join in.
FREE TASTER SESSIONS! We offer free taster sessions so you can see our unique program in action. We only ask that, in return, you have a quick chat with us afterwards to discuss how the children enjoyed the session and whether you would like to bring in Pyjama Drama on a regular basis.
