About Maisy's Children's Parties

Ann-Marie Christou - Maisy's Children's Parties Maisy's Children's Parties was founded by Ann-Marie Christou who now has over two decades of experience in theatre and working with children in a variety of settings.

Ann-Marie was a member of the National Youth Theatre from a young age and completed an English and Drama Degree at the University of Surrey along with an MA in Acting at EAST 15 Acting School.

She has worked as a drama facilitator, an English and Langauge Teacher including work within SEN and also as a children's entertainer. Through these different settings she has come to realise the effectiveness of drama in play so decided to form a company that would incorporate her years of experience in drama, teaching and in children's events.

More than just a party

working with children to help improve their confidence and learning through drama in a fun and creative way.

Ann-Marie believes that:

With focus, commitment, sensitivity and well structured parties you can help build a child's confidence and therefore increase their enjoyment, something often missed by regular entertainers. I'm constantly adapting and adding new things to develop a 'Maisy's' party but the core always stays the same ensuring the children are fully captivated and engaged from start to finish.

The entertainer will encourage the children to take the lead and become part of the magical world ensuring that they have confidence in themselves and in the entertainer to make the most out of their special day.

We're proud to say that a vast majority of our bookings come from repeat bookings and referrals. That said we don't like to take anything for granted so here at Maisy's Children's Parties you will find fully trained entertainers who are constantly aiming to develop their skills and expertise.

Ann-Marie also understands that every child is different so she will work with you to create the right party for your child or event. whether that be a pirate, princess, superhero or jungle inspired party Ann-Marie likes nothing more than being creative and providing a specialised party package just for you.

Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter-connected Babies and young children make learning connections in their brains faster and better in an enriched environment. Adult interactions which help support and extend their learning make a big difference to learning, as does physical activity during the session.
