All About Play is a Creative Drama Training programme designed by Young at Art to assist pre-school and primary teachers in their use of drama in the classroom.

“I will encourage other members of staff to come to this workshop (brilliant). Highly recommended.” Teacher 2018

The training is divided into two strands - All About Playing for Nursery/Pre-school School educators and All About Plays for Primary School educators.

In a relaxed, fun environment, it empowers participants through active learning and participatory drama experiences. Professional facilitators build participants’ existing skills base and show how to incorporate creative approaches to the use of drama in the classroom, linking activities to the Pre-school and Primary curricula. The course is accompanied by a printed booklet, video resource and a prop box of drama equipment. 

“Everyone working with children should take part.” Early years professional 2017
