This exciting new program focuses on providing children early in their school career with opportunities to explore emotional expression, play out situations they find tricky, and practice social and problem-solving skills to support their future success. Drama-based games, stories, dramatic play and role play, incorporating music, movement and other creative activities will help active kids engage their mind, body and imagination to develop their social skills and learn to work and play with others.

Facilitated by a qualified educator and Master Creative Arts Therapy (Drama) student, your child will have fun and learn some social skills along the way. It is a 10 week program run during the school term.
Information regarding skills practiced in the session will be available to parents with suggestions of how these skills can be strengthened outside of sessions.

Come in comfortable clothes – clothes that enable you to move freely. A drink bottle – we may need to rehydrate during our activities, but a sip of water can also be useful to help self-regulate. It is encouraged that a snack is eaten prior to the session as no eating will be allowed during the session.

Information regarding skills practised in the session will be available to parents and simple practise activities suggested, and encouraged, to strengthen the new learning outside of the sessions.

Our  sessions are a fun and relaxed place to be and we understand that you want to capture your child in action, however, we aim to create a child-safe environment and respect the privacy of children and their families. Photography or video recordings are not permitted in the sessions, if you’d like to take photos of your child, this can be done at the beginning or the end of the session and photographs should be limited to just your child or family members.

Parents/carers are required to remain onsite – waiting room or carpark. Children who need extra assistance may need their parent to remain in the room for the session. It is, however, strongly encouraged that parents/carers enable their children to participate independently as the groups are a place for children to develop social skills that they can apply in settings where parents/carers may not always be i.e. School.

Book a trial session and come see how things work!
