"Thank you for bringing joy and creativity to the kids, this is [my child's] very first experience learning drama and acting, and he really enjoyed it! We will definitely continue the journey, hope to see you [again] soon!"

Parent, 4 year old student

"Thank YOU so much for hosting such an amazing program! It must have been challenging to manage several (often distracted) children online and at the same time providing fun and nurturing classes to them. Not only did they absolutely love your class, as a parent I also learned lots of communication skills from you. You are definitely excellent at what you do!"

Parent, 4 year old student

"Ms. Hayes’s genuine passion for teaching young children is apparent the moment you meet her. Her personality is consistently warm, upbeat, and engaging - it is no wonder that [our child] has thrived in this environment. Her theatrical background inspired many of the curriculum’s creative elements, bringing out wonderfully creative elements of his personality. She delighted in watching [our child's] progress throughout the year, and as a parent this was a joy to witness. It is no wonder that [our child] feels so comfortable in the classroom."
