Extra Curriculum

At Best Friends Childcare we aim to make everyday fun and exciting. We are delighted to have on board Drama Llamas an external company who provides the children with a great new learning opportunity.

Drama is a wonderful tool for learning so each one of our action-packed storytelling and drama sessions is designed with a learning experience in mind. We cover many themes, such as weather, animals, space, road safety, mini beasts, birds and many, many more.

However, the learning goes further than the just theme, we use the story as a touchstone for other imaginative learning opportunities. Within the general theme of ‘under the sea’, for example, we may explore numeracy and scale, whilst within the general theme of ‘holidays ‘we may cover rhyming, opposites, colour or shape.

Attending regular Drama Llamas sessions will help children understand the structure of stories and fine tune their listening skills – both of which are essential preparation for school, early reading and making sense of the world around them. The children play with language and explore emotions helping them to better communicate and understand their own feelings.

So, Drama Llamas is rich with learning opportunities for the children – but from their point of view, they are simply having lots and lots of fun!


Debutots promotes language development, ignites imagination and improves concentration for babies 6-months to children of 7 years in parent and child classes, nurseries, schools and after school clubs.

In exploring our stories vocally and physically we facilitate children’s literacy and communication development. They speak, listen, imagine, observe and do.

Dipping tiny toes into the world of stories, words and sounds, Baby Story Play is a multi-sensory blend of storytelling, puppets, bubbles and music, perfect for babies and toddlers!
