Pyjama Drama is an established, fun and exciting Children's Drama Business. Established in 2005 and with the first franchise sold in 2009, the business has expanded rapidly in towns, villages and cities throughout the UK.
In 2015, Pyjama Drama classes were launched in Australia and Malaysia, and at the beginning of 2016, Pyjama Drama began working with teachers in California. More recently they have worked with practitioners in China and India.
In 2018, Pyjama Drama began creating CPD opportunities and resources for early year's practitioners, winning a Teach Early Years Award in both 2020 and 2021, and creating an additional income stream for franchisees. In 2021, they were proud to be accepted as Core Members of the Anti-Bullying Alliance and Partners of The Sex Education Forum for their anti-bullying Primary School curriculum – yet another way in which the status of the Pyjama Drama Franchisees is elevated by the work done at Head Office
Thanks to the pandemic, the well-being of our children has never been more of a priority, and as the world slowly begins to open up, teachers and parents alike are increasingly looking for ways to ensure the social, as well as physical needs of their children, are met.
Pyjama Drama believe that one of the absolute best ways to address any deficit in social and emotional, as well as physical development, is through imaginative play.
Pyjama Drama are looking for people who are passionate about young children’s development, who enjoy singing, playing, pretending and being silly with young children!
You don’t need necessarily to have any formal drama or teaching experience, rather they are looking for raw skills and talent, and an enthusiasm for creative education. If you’re hard-working, professional, a team player, and someone who wants to make a difference to young people’s lives – Pyjama Drama would love you to apply to wear the red T-shirt!
Pyjama Drama Franchisees work in nurseries, preschools, schools and in public sessions delivering classes and shows. This is a flexible franchise which can be run part-time and alongside other work if necessary.
Franchisees are in control of their own timetable and choose how much to work during term-time and in the school holidays, depending upon how much they want to earn, and how quickly they want to grow their business.
Comprehensive training teaches franchisees how to market their business to secure work, and how to run the admin and financial side of their business too.
We believe that one of the absolute best ways to address any deficit in social and emotional, as well as physical development, is through imaginative play and that’s why we’re on the lookout for likeminded individuals to join our team this year.
The highest earning franchisees have turned over in excess of £50K. These have been franchisees who are working full-time and have built up to this over a period of a few years.
The vast majority of the network work part-time and turn over between £15,000 and £30,000. Profit margins are, on average, 75%. Despite the pressures of Covid, since September 2021 Pyjama Drama have seen enormous growth, with franchisees turning over record figures. Nurseries and schools are responding to the ill effects of the pandemic and looking for programmes such as theirs to promote engagement in education, and to develop social and emotional skills.
