Overmaatjies Creche Applied Drama Project

A Drama Therapist and Applied Theatre Practcioners facilitate weekly sessions with a class of children, aged 3-5. The main focus is to build and develop resilience, which includes developing a sense of Self, emotional expression and positive relationships. Research has shown that early interventions that focus on resiliency offers children a better chance at completing their schooling careers and leading healthy, happy lives. Through games, storytelling and play, the group focused on themes such as identity, self-esteem, feelings, safe spaces, friendships and helpful people.
