Not all children learn from sitting at a desk. We thoroughly believe in the power of learning through play. Whether it’s working from a storybook, one of our own stories or creating something totally new within a workshop we champion interactive, imaginative play.The benefits allow a child to really develop their imagination and creativity as well as physical, emotional and cognitive development. All this leads to increased engagement and interaction with the world around them and healthy brain development.

'Janet and Cassie engaged with the children from the start. They supported the children's learning, whilst maintaining a high level of participation. The children were engrossed. What an amazing experience.' - Jacqueline Brandt, Scarcroft Green Nursery Manager.

What we offer:

  • Similar to our Crafty Tales at the York Theatre Royal, we can provide a workshop around a story or a play or poem…you name it. Bringing to life the words on the page to create a world for the pupils.
  • We deliver one of our own adventures. Original stories designed round a theme of your choosing. Our most recent quest was an ‘underwater adventure’ at Scarcroft Green Nursery.
  • A totally bespoke workshop lead by the pupils. There might be something particular they are learning about or interested in. We facilitate and colate ideas during a session to develop a story that the students deliver at the end of the session. Either as one large group or smaller ones.
As our name sake suggests, we will always include some crafting within each session. For more information or if you want to chat through anything, please drop us a line.
