Early Years Drama Program
What We Learned

This pilot program was supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
At Carousel Players, we believe all children can benefit from drama education.
In this program, trained artist-educators travel to Ontario’s full day kindergarten program classrooms and EarlyON centres to provide a specialized program for children aged 0 to 6 years. Children have the opportunity to engage in creative play and self-expression that enhances and deepens their learning.
Carousel Players carefully crafts our drama education curriculum with the guidance of Early Childhood Education experts to support emergent literacy in pre-grade school children while also engaging in dramatic play.
During the pilot years, the program was offered at no cost to the child care centres.
