Welcome to DramEd!
At DramEd we teach and explore the world through Drama, Music and Role-Play.
We want ALL children to have access to the arts, ALWAYS! So we literally perform our way through each topic. We sing, dance and use role-play based learning to engage children in a way that makes learning fun and experiential, every single time.
We are firm believers that when a child is given permission to be creative and to use their imaginations, they find a special part of themselves, a strong sense of identity and a platform for expression. We believe that this kind of nurturing makes the world a better place!
To facilitate the Arts within the a number of education systems, we have developed early years programmes and school programmes which use the Creative Arts to teach, because we have found that along with the qualities that access to the arts can nurture, we create a platform for children to make connections in the early stages of their learning!
Grace Willis-Hodgins, the founder of DramEd and DramEd Events has been building DramEd since 2013. It all began at the start of her acting career, when she decided to bring her love for the stage into her eldest sons school and her middle sons nursery, where she volunteered a number of very theatrical storytelling sessions. Fast forward some years, Grace has worked closely with educators from mainstream public and private schools, through to Montessori and Steiner schools, in order to develop programmes that can that support children through their education regardless of where they learn.
