Licketyspit are early years theatre and play specialists working with children; teachers; families and partners to transform lives; empowering and connecting participants through children's human rights-based inclusive drama-led play and food. Licketyspit's Children & Families Network (CFN) nurtures and sustains relationships with and among a community of families in Glasgow & Edinburgh including many migrant and refugee families and children with additional support needs, through online engagement, trips and newsletters..
Our work prioritises disadvantaged children and families and our imaginary play approach is called Storyplay. Our current community and online projects in Glasgow include Storyplay City, Big Porridge & Play Glasgow and Storyplay Schools.
Throughout 2020 and into 2021 Licketyspit has delivered our imaginary play sessions for 3-12s online. We distributed 1200 sets of our Lickety Playcards and over 100 digital devices & internet packages. In June 2021 we also started to deliver sessions outdoors.
In autumn 2021 we expect to deliver a mixture of online and outdoor sessions for existing and new members of our children & families network. You can stay up to date at: https://www.licketyspit.com/families/happening-now/
Our children & families network is open to all. It's a wonderful way to meet other families who share a love of play and want to support their children's rights. You can sign up here to join the community and find out about upcoming sessions in your area/online: http://licketyspit.com/join
We also have a website full of growing family play, story and learning resources: https://www.licketyspit.com/families/
We are also open to partnerships as part of our Storyplay City project and can offer CPD training.
