Our drama classes are specifically designed to promote emotional well-being and boost self-esteem.
Our acclaimed International Development Through Drama programme also increases children’s confidence, social and interaction skills and develops creativity and performance skills.
Classes are 1 hour long during term time and include a new play exploring new characters and themes each week.
During the COVID-19 pandemic we are the only Drama Academy in the York area to have offered online drama classes for the full 12-week summer term. Should face to face classes be unable to operate at any point during the autumn term our classes will continue online.
Our curriculum, written by experts in child development, is updated annually and has been adapted this term so classes can move seamlessly between face to face and online should the need arise.
We have an annual performance where each class performs a specially written production on stage for family and friends. Every child is fully involved throughout the whole piece.
Most importantly our classes are huge fun and our aim is for every child to leave with a big smile on their face! We offer a free taster session so your child can come along and see if our classes are right for them.

We are Muddy Boots, a family-from-family, home-from-home nursery, offering places for children aged between 6 weeks and 5 years old.
The name ‘Muddy Boots’ really sums up our whole ethos – to not be afraid to let children learn by getting muddy, exploring, going on adventures and getting out there and having a go! Children at Muddy Boots enjoy a wide range of activities both indoor and out, planned by a qualified and experienced staff team who genuinely love and care for them.
We believe that nursery should be a family, a loving community where each child, parent and team member is an individual that truly matters and is highly valued. We also place a lot of importance on integrity, always committing to doing what we say and saying what we do. Finally, we are very aspirational! We won’t settle or be satisfied with mediocre or the ‘status quo’ – we are a nursery which is constantly evolving and improving to ensure an excellent experience for all.
For all the details you need about us, including sessions, pricing, funding & food head to our website, and book yourself a personal tour soon, we would love to show you round!
