Who’s this course for?

Anyone working with children in their early years.

What will I learn?

  • How imaginative play supports the seven areas of learning and development (EYFS)

  • How to create an imaginary world using two Pyjama Drama techniques

  • How to use these techniques to deliver a Pyjama Drama game to 3 – 5-year-olds

What skills will my children develop when I lead Pyjama Drama games?

Everything we do at Pyjama Drama develops children’s life skills, e.g., problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, decision-making, creative thinking, interpersonal skills, self-awareness, empathy, coping with stress, and dealing with emotions.

Do I have to be good at drama to lead Pyjama Drama games?

We pride ourselves on creating training and resources that anyone can deliver, from the most theatrical among us to those more reserved, and if you can make a child laugh by pulling a funny face or can put on different voices when reading stories, you are already good at drama!

Is there ongoing support?

Absolutely. When you purchase this course, you will automatically join our online support group, where you can ask questions, seek advice, and offer support to other practitioners delivering our games and using our techniques.
