Perfect for teachers, LSAs, childminders, nursery staff, nannies, and SEND.

Pyjama Drama was established in 2005 in the UK, and since then, has enjoyed international success. We are experienced teachers who train other practitioners how to use our drama and imaginative play techniques and resources to develop children’s life skills and meet UK curriculum objectives (2 – 11 years). Many people believe they can’t ‘do drama’, but nothing could be further from the truth. We have successfully trained people from all over the world, from the most to the least confident, and the majority with little or no prior drama experience. We believe drama should play a part in every child’s life, but we don’t want to create child actors. All our activities are designed to ignite children’s imaginations while developing the skills they need to lead happy and successful lives.

In this course, will learn how to use Pyjama Drama techniques that spark joy, ignite imaginations, and encourage children to listen, focus, and participate in activities with cooperation.

No drama experience or drama skills required and perfect even for those who may consider themselves naturally ‘shy’. 100% of early years practitioners who initially felt unsure about using drama reported feeling more confident by the end of the training.
