Creative Play for 2-3 Years With Parents, NIDA Kensington

Creative Play provides an entertaining and supportive learning environment designed especially for growing artists and their families.

Learning framework

Each week students participate in play based dramatic exercises to engage the body, voice and imagination in creative, self-expression. We work with a different theme or focus on a specific area of creative development each term. Classes are tailored to the developmental and creative needs of individual children.

What is Creative Play?

Creative Play actively engages children and parents in storytelling and artistic practice through voice, movement and dramatic play based activities.
Children and their parents are supported by our experienced tutors to:

  • Develop self-confidence
  • Explore social contexts and group dynamics
  • Develop voice and communication skills
  • Discover the physical world and cultural landscapes
  • Engage their personal creativity and artistry in a fun environment
