STOP PRESS DRAMARAMA Dramarama is located in Ponsonby, it’s an environment designed to stimulate, learn and most of all, to have fun! Your children will leave each class having learnt more about themselves, and expanded their minds in a way that is amazing and extraordinary to watch. The sessions are tailor-made for individual growth and learning, and as your child develops in his or her special and unique way, the learning environment around them will change and grow with them. DRAMARAMA also offers space for parents to kick back and relax with freshly brewed coffee and homemade baking whilst the children play. We also have a playpen for the up and coming DRAMARAMA siblings. A warm and friendly place to catch up, relax and get that well earned rest. 135 Ponsonby Road T: 09 360 0173
