Happy Hippos is run by Sharon, a fully qualified nursery nurse and mother of three. She is now qualified with a BA in early years and established the company in 1999 to combine child friendly entertainment with a professional service, to create everlasting memories for each and every valued customer.
“A company with great experience of delivering theme days for the private, corporate and school sectors.”
Happy Hippos offer a unique and innovative service to nursery and primary schools across Merseyside. They have created a number of themed days which can transform a school, a classroom or a nursery into a magical world which stimulates the children’s powers of imagination and fantasy to create a truly memorable experience.
Themes include pirates, fairy tales, dragons and knight, traditional stories and others can be created in response to your school’s specific educational requirements. The days are designed around storytelling and literacy and children are encouraged to attend in fancy dress while Happy Hippos will research the theme specifically for your day and will decorate your rooms out with appropriate scenery, supply supporting reading material and also costumes and props to enhance the chosen theme.
A typical day will involve individual classes of storytelling where Sharon will involve the children in performing the stories and bringing them to life through drama. Many different books and stories will be used throughout the day and the children will have their imaginations tested to the full. Often, themes will have been worked on and developed by the children over the weeks leading up to the day and will have been involved in reading, art, craft and drama sessions, culminating in the actual day.
Days can be arranged as a reward day or in support of many aspects of the curriculum, school book days, educational outings or even historical based assemblies.
With 3,000 costumes and years of creative experience there really is no limit to the scope of this wonderful service provided by this small but dedicated company.
