Drama for ages 3 – 4 years old is a weekly course which offers a welcoming and supportive space to learn, play and create.
Led by an experienced tutor, our young students will embark on fantastical make-believe adventures, learning drama skills and honing their powerful imaginations to create spectacular stories.
This class has a focus on playing within drama, rather than on performance to an audience. The focus on process, development and play, offers the optimum learning environment for young children.
Students will be able to explore their creativity in a safe and inclusive environment with the freedom to express themselves.
Through this course, children will:
- develop imaginative skills
- learn how to work as a group to make decisions and progress a narrative
- use drama skills to tell stories and create imagined worlds
- develop confidence to try out their ideas in a friendly and safe space
- engage in semi-structured play with an experienced facilitator

This early years drama course aims to instil confidence in children and teach them effective communication skills in a supportive, creative environment.
Each week the class will begin with a physical and vocal warm up – we want our young students to be comfortable to express themselves in the rehearsal room with their fellow students.
Led by an experienced early years course leader, the children will work on a series of practical exercises each week, designed to build their confidence and enable them to develop effective communication tools to work with one other in creating small performance pieces.
There are no entry requirements to this open access course. Don’t worry if your child hasn’t tried a class like this before, the course leader will ensure every child is involved and gets as much out of the course as possible.
