EduDrama® drives every programme that you come across in Julia Gabriel, from PlayNest to Stage Lights to our teaching certificates. EduDrama®’s unique methodology was developed by Julia Gabriel and is what makes Julia Gabriel programmes stand out from other programmes offered by other enrichment centres.

A teaching and learning methodology used in all Julia Gabriel Education programmes, EduDrama® supports children’s development of communication skills and self-leadership abilities in a natural progression, starting with initial self-discovery and moving on to self-actualization as young adults who contribute their talents at home, in school, and in society.

EduDrama® combines drama with planned educational outcomes to foster learning through interaction and active involvement and to engage children in using and extending their language communication knowledge and strengths. Children and adults respond readily and with great success to learning this way.

Using a wide range of drama tools such as improvisation, theatre, mime, puppetry, role-play, masks, storytelling, reading aloud, dramatic poetry and creative writing, students are engaged and challenged to draw upon their own interpretation and add their own experiences to express their ideas.

EduDrama® drama builds strong self-expression, confidence, collaboration with others, compassion, courage, cognition and commitment to continuous growth.

Our English EduDrama® programmes have also been taken up by other kindergartens, primary and secondary schools in Singapore since 1995.

Our EduDrama® methodology supports individuals
over classes. We believe in natural progression, beginning
with exploration and moving towards expansion.

The EduDrama® difference is about empowering individuals with crucial skills for life. Our dedicated educators nurture students to become lifelong learners and self-leaders who use their talents to make a positive impact at home, school and in the greater community.

EduDrama® enables the discovery and development of our faculties and stimulate learning. Skills are mastered over time through practice within a happy and secure environment.
