Lilly & Larry Love Literacy is our preschool phonics and drama programme for children aged 1 – 5 years.

It helps build literacy skills in these very young children by strengthening both their verbal and nonverbal communication.

And because we incorporate the performing arts into everyday learning, they’ll get a whole load of other benefits too.

Every Lilly & Larry class has a phoneme and a grapheme at its core, which will be the predominant sound each week, and is based around a different story.

With the help of 2 monkey puppets – Lilly and Larry – your DramEd teacher will explore the weekly phonic sound, leading the children in your setting through age-appropriate drama and role play exercises that build on their phonological awareness.

Designed to nurture literacy and oracy development, each class starts with a welcome song and some drama based games to build class confidence. We then lead vocal warm-ups with sentences and sounds which are great for speech development. 

We have a repertoire of the best children’s stories to bring to life in your classroom, but are always happy to deliver a session based on a story of your choice if you’d prefer.
