Storytelling Residency

COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT.

A Play House storyteller will work with small groups of children over the day to co-create shared stories together. The story created is based on a multi sensory, initial stimulus offered by the storyteller. The storyteller then builds on ideas and any developing narrative coming from children's responses, both physical and verbal.
