Preschool sessions with Amanda and Fred the Cat

I specialise in interactive storytelling for young children and have been taking my sessions into preschools for over 10 years.


All my Preschool Sessions are highly interactive and combine a lively mixture of storytelling, music, movement, make-believe and drama.

They are fantastic for speech and language development and strengthen listening and communication skills.

They are an exciting way to engage young children and to inspire creativity.

All sessions are devised by myself and can be tailored to suit any setting.


What you say:

'Thank-you Amanda. It is lovely to see the way the children's faces light up when you tell them stories.'

'Just wanted to thank you for running such a wonderful group. You bring to life everyone's sense of wonder and fun (including the grown-ups!)'

What to Expect: 

Sessions always begin and end the same way, so children quickly become engaged and comfortable to join in.


I have a little black cat puppet called Fred. He is friendly and gentle.

Children love Fred and Fred loves stories.

Fred introduces the theme or story for the session either with a book or with his story baskets.

This is then explored with music and movement using rhymes, familiar songs, make-believe and early years drama.

Sessions are based either on popular picture books and classic tales or tailored to compliment any learning themes the children are enjoying within your setting.

Sessions are very visual and the children enjoy using a variety of props and percussion instruments.
