Local Children’s Activity, Drama Tots, Scoops Up Four National Awards!
Coventry business, Drama Tots, is delighted to have recently been awarded with the title of best franchised pre-school activity in the prestigious WhatsOn4Kids Awards 2018.
These pioneering awards were launched in 2007 to celebrate the UK’s best children’s activities. Drama Tots was announced as the winner on 3rd October at a ceremony hosted by Natwest in London. Dick and Dom (pictured below) were special guests at the event and the Drama Tots ladies weren’t shy of having a selfie with them!
Drama Tots was founded 2 years ago by Leanne Jones. Having trained as an actress and worked for many years in children’s theatre, Leanne wrote the Drama Tots program to provide fun, engaging and educational drama classes for children aged 18 months – 5 years old. The classes take place in venues and early years settings across Coventry. The classes are exciting, engaging and educational; one week the children will be zooming to the moon in a rocket and the next they might be diving into the sea and swimming with dolphins!
This is the 4th National Award that Drama Tots has won in 2018. Along with the WhatsOn4Kids Award, the business has been awarded with the business growth award at the Networking Mummies Awards, Small Business Award from Theo Paphitis’ SBS Awards, and Leanne was extremely proud to win the Woman Who Achieves in Small Business Award at the Woman Who Awards.
Leanne Jones, founder of Drama Tots said, “I am so proud and honoured to have received these recent awards. Teaching Drama Tots and seeing the children grow in confidence and self-esteem each week is hugely rewarding but to be recognised for the service that we provide is amazing.”
Leanne, from Earlsdon in Coventry, founded Drama Tots in 2016 to fulfil a desire to give every child the opportunity to learn and grow through dramatic play.
Having studied acting at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Leanne went on to build a career in children’s theatre. After spending 12 years performing and writing shows for children, Leanne gained invaluable knowledge into how to engage and excite little ones. She has used this experience to write the Drama Tots educational program.
12 months ago Leanne took the step to franchise Drama Tots and the business is growing every month. There are currently 7 franchisees across the UK with more to be announced very soon.
At the Heart of Drama Tots lies passion, hard work and the desire for all children to have the opportunity to learn and flourish through drama and imaginative play.
