Hello, my name is Louise Howard. I’m a qualified primary and SEN teacher and I now run Debutots Nottingham, a network of drama practitioners that run interactive storytelling and drama play classes across the country for children aged 6 months up to 7 years old. Our classes are a unique blend of original stories, drama play, games and more!
I chose to become a Debutots franchisee as I related to its core values to nurture and develop confidence, creativity and language and literacy skills in young children.
There are many benefits of our parent and child classes. They provide the opportunity for families to get out of the house and they take the pressure off parents and carers having to entertain, tidy, or think about work for a while. Adults can embrace having fun, being a bit silly and enjoy watching their little ones immerse themselves in their story adventures!
Our parent and child classes also provide the opportunity for families to interact and meet with other families from the community and to talk about the pains and triumphs of everyday life. The children have opportunities to interact with other children around their age and have an amazing time whilst learning and growing in confidence throughout the classes.
I feel grateful that my job allows me to meet so many amazing families and I get to watch little ones grow in confidence every week. Our Family Story Play Classes run at Ruddington Village Hall on Thursday afternoons at 1:35pm. Please come along to discover more!
