Nicola is currently working as head creative producer for Wonderosity in the family summer series in Hawley Wharf, Camden Market. Nicola is hugely passionate about nurturing imagination through role-play and immersive adventures.
Each week Nicola delivers magical drama sessions with the children and links sessions to the nursery curriculum topic. Nicola brings along props to all of her sessions to extend the imaginative thoughts and ideas as well as rhymes and songs to add to the themed experience.
The children enjoy sharing stories and bringing it to life re-enacting the stories with real props and adventures using all of the nursery space.
Drama is a brilliant way for children to express themselves, to build vocabulary and creativity as well as their self-confidence. The children engage and socially enjoy sessions with their peers and familiar adults, exploring new ideas.
