Early Years Projects

Our bespoke programmes for Early Years include introductions to a performance at our theatre with accompanying workshops. We also deliver our signature Creative Play programme and a specialist EY Dance and Drama programme.

These programmes were created in response to requests from Tower Hamlets children’s centres for sessions to support children with their active play. Sessions take place across a term or just a few weeks and allow young children to explore their bodies and their imaginations, encouraging them to feel confident with moving and communicating.

“Enthusiastic, unique, refreshing, fun and different from any other classes we attend.”

Creative Play

Our signature Creative Play programme is designed to work with children and parents/carers together where everyone gets involved. The programme explores journeys to different environments and supports children in developing their imaginative play as well as their physical exploration. Sessions create a strong link between ideas and materials used by the facilitators and objects found at home.

In the Summer 2022 term, we are working in Around Poplar, Isle of Dogs and Overland Children and Family Centres, and Harry Roberts Nursery at Ben Jonson Primary School in Tower Hamlets. We will also be piloting a new programme at Grange, Robert Browning and Rotherhithe Primary Schools in Southwark.

If you are already signed up to Around Poplar, Isle of Dogs and Overland Children and Family Centres, you can contact them directly to express interest in attending the programme at one of those centres.

Dance and Drama

These sessions enable a class of children to move from movement, physical expression and dance to stories and narrative through storyworlds and multi-sensory play. Sessions develop children’s strength and balance as well as encouraging a sense of narrative in their play.

We can include a one-off Messy Play session as part of the programme, giving children a chance to creatively engage with a variety of wet and dry materials.
