How children are participating

Shows use comedy, magic tricks and role play to create wonder, enthusiasm, and engagement around the important learning topics and outcomes.

VEYLDF Learning Outcomes

Children have a strong sense of identity when they are able to express a wide range of emotions, and identify their own thoughts, feelings and emotions portrayed by the characters.
Children are connected with and contribute to their world when they are able to recognise fairness and bias, acts of compassion and kindness and are able to play a vital role in actively participating, ensuring the characters are included and have a strong sense of belonging.
Children have a strong sense of wellbeing when they are encouraged to listen to each character’s challenges, feelings and emotions, and offer support.
Children are confident, involved and curious learners when they are engaged in fun and interactive learning through comedy and magic.
Children are effective communicators when they are able to express themselves through dance, drawing, movement and slapstick to create different scenes throughout the show.

Thank you for the extremely funny, thoroughly engaging and thoughtful shows you performed at our centre in the past weeks. Not only did it have the children laughing but more importantly they are still talking about it. All of your performances reflected the Early Years Learning Framework and were very educational. Every child participated in all facets of singing, dancing and acting and your ability to listen and respect their questions was impressive. I would highly recommend these shows to anyone in early learning.

Our girls,their friends and all the kinder kids had an amazing time at Charlie’s performance at Taralye – the oral language centre for deaf children! Incredibly patient, kind and hilarious. Thankyou so much x
