Debutots - Hull
I wasn’t even looking for a change of career when I stumbled across Debutots for the first time but quickly became captivated by the concept and I knew I had to be the one to bring this fantastic imaginative world to East Yorkshire!
I have loved stories and imaginative play for as long as I can remember and spent my childhood dressing up, creating and performing plays and dances with my sister for our loving and extremely patient parents and grandparents.
We were actively encouraged to explore our imaginations, something I feel passionate about passing on to my children as a mum to one little boy and step mum to three lovely girls and this is at the heart of every Debutots class.
Debutots is a unique blend of storytelling and dramatic play. We create a fun environment for children to build their confidence while enhancing their language, listening and communication skills.
Each week children use their imagination to creatively explore a different and original story which have been carefully developed to link to the EYFS and KS1
Whether you are a Nursery, School, Childminder, Sure Start Centre, Parent or Grandparent, Debutots can take you on a wonderful adventure!
Call me today to discuss your needs and book a FREE TRIAL and let’s see where our imagination takes us!
Nurseries & Schools
Since our launch in Hull in the Summer of 2015 I am delighted to already be working with over 20 Schools and Nurseries in the area. The benefits of a specialist, fully trained practitioner mean you can rest assured that your children are in very capable hands and their attention will be held for a full class.
All our classes are linked to the EYFS and KS1 and each class is detailed in our Creative Planning Pack which slots seamlessly into your planning.
Emma makes stories come alive! The children love joining in with the storytelling with actions and words. Debutots sessions with Emma has helped to encourage and develop our pupils' speech. Sally Sullivan, Teacher, St Annes Community Special School
Debutots is a fantastic enrichment to the Preschool curriculum. It is a fun and exciting way to engage both very young and older children due to start school, in story-telling. It promotes language and builds confidence in a relaxed and happy environment. As a manager of a currently rated Outstanding Preschool I cannot praise the Debutots sessions more. Claire Newton, Manager, Cherry Burton Pre-school
Debutots is brilliant and like nothing else we've seen before. All the children thoroughly enjoy Emma's visits to the setting and always remember the stories she tells. Also with the links to the EYFS it gives the practitioners in the setting new ideas to further enhance the children's learning once the session is over. Clair Burn, Manager, Butterflies Day Nursery
Since Melissa started Debutots in April of last year she has gone from strength to strength. She interacts well with the children and differentiates each groups ability levels with ease and consistency. She delivers each session with passion and enthusiasm and ensures each child is engaged and involved at all times. Melissa makes each session fun, interesting and energetic. The children really look forward to seeing her and are excited to find out the topic each week. Adele Lake, TA Christopher Pickering Primary School
Debutots encourages children to be more confident and use their imagination, I have seen a big difference in the children’s confidence over the past few months since Emma from Debutots has been attending weekly sessions. Children tell their parents that Emma has been when they are been collected from Nursery Dawn Farren, Owner, Teenyworld Nursery
