Who are DramEd?
In a nutshell, DramEd is at the moment one woman passionate about all children growing with confidence in themselves and the World at large. With a background in theatre and television, Grace uses Puppetry, Drama, Dance and Music to create immersive and interactive experiences for children.
My aim is to connect with as many children as possible and my social objective is to reach children in poorer social economic communities. Many children in these communities start school with literacy skills that are an average of 16 months behind children from higher income families and the gap only gets bigger as the years go on. I want all children to become confident communicators and I recognise that stories play an important role, making learning fun. “Literacy is an essential skill to enable people to participate fully in society”.
DramEd runs Birthday Parties, After School Clubs and Storytelling Adventures in schools, nurseries and children’s centres – and I also recognise the importance in running classes that strengthen families.
DramEd was founded in 2013.
*All DramEd employees have a valid DBS Certificate and are currently training in Makaton (“a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to comunicate.” Makaton.org).
