We’ve done the research; so you can enjoy the fun.

Pyjama Drama
venue: St Paul's Hala Centre, Lancaster. LA1 4RW
contact: Ali on 01524 884101 or ali@pyjamadrama.com
time: 9:30am
cost: Classes cost £6 each.  You book a 3-week trial first and then pay termly.
We all know that in order to connect with our kids, we need to enter their world.  Pyjama Drama classes are here to help with exactly that.  With no props or costumes, we explore an imaginary world with the children and hang out with them in all places that they already visit in their imaginations.  So we might be visiting monkeys in the jungle, or a gnome in the garden, or firefighters at the Fire Station.  In this world, they will practice being brave in a safe imaginative space and then even become braver in real life!  Couldn’t we all do with a weekly injection of confidence? They’ll learn skills of co-operation and co-ordination. We even cover every area of the EYFS. We don’t even expect adults to join in if you don’t want to (although we love it when you do!). And you don’t have to come up with ideas for imaginative play, you just use our different ideas every week at home.  We’ve got 400 different scripts, so you’re guaranteed a different script every week.  Ali has been a childminder for 8 years before she began Pyjama Drama, so she’s super relaxed about toddler behaviour.  She’s genuinely seen it all!
