The Early Years
Creating a Special Spark!
Igniting a Passion for Life!
Ages 2-5 yrs
At ACTAcademy studios, we have our own dedicated Creative Early Years Department. Our pioneering pre-school
Performatots Pre School is designed to offer a really different alternative to ordinary nursery or pre-school care, for those aged 2 - 5 years.
We passionately believe little people need a stimulating, creative, expressive and nurturing environment to learn, play and grow in. Our Pre-School is fully Ofsted registered and follows the same EYFS curriculum guidelines and requirements of any other pre-school or nursery, but we are utterly unique in our values and intelligent learning programme. designed and run by our passionate and energetic Principal, who is a fully qualified Early Years Teacher (EYT).
Our Early Years children have their own creative studio and classroom as well as accessing the main dance studio for lessons in movement and music, and our drama studio for a speech and drama class each day. The range of opportunities on offer at our pre-school fully prepares young children for a life of creativity and gives them the confidence needed to be active learners, super friends and capable of communicating and expressing themselves competently.

Ages 18 months - 4 years
If you're looking for a shorter weekly class, come along to our stage school and join in the Little Stars fun! Little Stars is a fabulously creative, fun-filled class for pre-schoolers from 18 months–4 years. Young students will be taken on adventures every week and take part in activities to encourage creativity, coordination and communication skills. Classes are active (no having to keep them still!) and we include a little bit of music or singing, a chance to dance and lots of imagination and confidence-boosting drama in there too. We're sure Little Stars will become the highlight of your little one's week.
At Little Stars you can expect drama, stories, dressing up, role-play, singing, rhymes, music, play with props, crafty bits, games and activities to encourage the development of your little one... Oh, and NO having to fight with your children to keep them sitting still or joining in. We have a 'freedom of expression' policy that allows children to join in with others, but at the same time, be different!
Classes are structured to challenge, excite and engage the different age ranges, whilst innately building creativity, imagination and social skills. Parents / Carers can join in and we actively encourage you to use the opportunity to interact with your children and socialise with each other too, making new adult friends for you and new playmates for your little ones!
