3 years to 6 years. (Act 1)

Every time your child is with us we will explore a new unique adventure. We may be wizards chasing goblins through endless dense forests. Visiting the king for tea, and the next we may be pirates on the search of hidden treasures. Then after a quick snack break we will be deep sea explorers. No 2 days are the same.

We will use the same structure each week but no 2 classes will ever be the same. The Children are made to feel very comfortable in these safe playful and relaxed surroundings.

6 years to 8 years. (Act 2)

For our Act 2 section we focus on learning skills through drama activities and story telling. Introducing acting through song and movement. Preparing the way for the easy transition in to the JH Academy.
