"We used 'Our First Nativity' last year with 40 children aged 2-4. It was FANTASTIC! So easy to learn. Thank you for taking the stress out of the nativity and helping staff to really enjoy staging the play for parents!" A Gladwin - Teacher

With added extras like PowerPoint scenery, colouring sheets, PowerPoint song words, piano score sheet music, detailed staging advice and much more, Early Years Nativity plays really don't get any better than this!

RUNNING TIME: Very flexible - The estimated running time is about 15-20 minutes. However, this time span can easily be shortened or lengthened significantly. Suggestions for how to do this are included in the detailed 'Production Notes' document which you will find contained within your purchase.

SHORT ON REHEARSAL TIME? Ideally you should allow yourself a few weeks for rehearsals, but if you're short on time, don't worry, we know from experience that it's possible to rehearse the simple version of this Nativity play in just a few days. What's the secret? During the show, read from the simple 'narrators only' script so that no one has any lines to learn. As for the songs, cut some out and divide the rest up! Don't get ALL the children to learn ALL the songs, instead share them between children or classes, so that no one has more than 2 or 3 songs to remember. If you follow this advice, you may even be able to rehearse this show in just a few hours!* Save even more time and money by downloading now and starting your preparations straight away! *(Please note this is not a guarantee. Please listen to the songs and view the script before deciding how much rehearsal time your pupils will require.)

SCHOOL INVOICE ORDERS: Our school invoicing system is not normally available for use by non-UK customers. However, in exceptional circumstances (e.g. if your school's payment procedures prohibit the use of a credit card), then we will provide goods for overseas schools, with a 30 day credit invoice, providing your establishment passes certain security checks. There is also an additional 'Overseas Banking Charge' of £10 for this service, to cover the banking costs we incur for accepting a bank payment in a foreign currency. Please email us at orders@learn2soar.co.uk if you wish to receive your goods with a 30 day invoice, along with the additional £10 charge.

UK Delivery

UK STANDARD DELIVERY (£1.99): All CD orders are usually dispatched via standard first class royal mail within 24 hours of the order being received. Therefore under normal circumstances most customers receive their orders within 1-3 working days. However at peak times of the year (October-November) please allow a little bit longer for your order to arrive.

UK NEXT WORKING DAY DELIVERY (£7.50): The option for UK customers to have their order delivered via "Next Day Delivery" is available for phone orders only on 0844 357 8473. However during times of heavy demand we reserve the right to withdraw this service without notice. Orders via Next Day Delivery must be placed before 2PM.


Overseas (Non-UK) Delivery

OVERSEAS [NON-UK] DELIVERY (£8.99) : NON-UK CUSTOMERS ARE ADVISED TO READ ALL THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BEFORE BUYING FROM US:

1) OVERSEAS PAYMENT OPTIONS: Please see the adjoining 'How To Buy' tab for various payment options.

2) CUSTOMS DUTY CHARGES: We are not aware of any country in the world, which will charge you an additional customs charge, for you to receive delivery of any of our goods.

3) DELIVERY CHARGES & TIMESCALE: If you have ordered physical goods for delivery, £8.99 will be added to your order for delivery costs. (Downloadable products / licences have no delivery charge.) This £8.99 price is for the 'Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed Service'.

Your order will normally be dispatched by us within 24 hours of the order being made, (except at weekends / public holidays).

Deliveries will usually take 5-10 working days at the most to reach you. However, this timescale is not guaranteed. Please note that if you have ordered from a remote part of the world, your order may take up to four weeks to reach you. For this reason we highly recommend that overseas customers consider buying downloadable products rather than physical products, which is always an instant way of receiving your purchase.

If you require goods to reach you faster than the usual 5-10 days, then we do have express delivery options available, upon request, which can get the goods to you in 1-3 days. However, these services are understandably very expensive, with delivery prices ranging from £35 to £95 per order. If you wish to pay extra for this premium service, then please phone or email us.

4) BFPO: British Forces Personnel based Overseas are counted as UK customers and can ignore the above information as long as a "BFPO" address is used.

So good
"So good in every way. A truly great early years nativity. Definitely the best I've ever used."
by Tom V

Love it
"For the last five years our preschool has alternated each year between Our First Nativity 1 and 2. We really, really love both nativities and always get a thrill out of the children's performance. I'd gladly recommend either of them to anyone who needs a quick, easy nativity performance for very young children."
by G Billings

9 years and counting
"So, we just worked out that this is our ninth year in a row that we're doing Our First Nativity. Do we get an award or something? I know it sounds crazy and I know you have lots of other fabulous nativities (very tempted by Our First Nativity 2), but the thing is, when you've found perfection, why replace it? So thank you again and by the way I always recommend Our First Nativity to other early years staff that I meet."
by Di Turner

so easy
"We purchased Our 1st Nativity download only last year and now we're doing something that we've never done before, we're using it again this year! In the past we'd always used different nativities each year from a lot of different companies, but because Our 1st Nativity is just so utterly easy to use and so wonderful in every way imaginable, we just had to break with tradition and repeat it. And I've got a feeling we'll be repeating it again and again and again for many more years to come. It's easily the best Early Years music / Christmas nativity resource we've come across. Well done Learn2soar:)"
by Tots Preschool

Amazing
"Wow! What an amazing nativity package! We performed with 45 Reception children. Everyone contributed as an actor, narrator or singer - yes, we even had some solos! The children exuded such confidence, due in large part to the fantastically easy, catchy songs and brilliantly simple playscript. Some parents even commented that it was far better than the Year 5 & 6 performance from the previous day! Everything that came in the download was easy to use and so well organised. It was a pleasure to produce and I'm sure we'll be using Our First Nativity again for years to come."
by Sally Marsh

Love it
"We absolutley love Our First Nativity. The performance was amazing. 2 weeks before the show, we found that the children had learnt all the songs already, something that never usually happens! The super simple songs are pitched perfectly for this age range. The play words are just divine and we also love all the added extras like the free colouring sheets. We used them as templates for Christmas cards and invitations. A nice touch. Ten out of ten for the best early years nativity we've ever used!"
by M Tayler

Excellent
"Our First Nativity is just excellent in every single way. This is the second time we've used it and therefore we've now bought a lifetime licence as it's clear we'll be using this item every year from now on. Thanks as well for the amazingly fast service you always provide."
by Ms Adams

Lovely
"We only just discovered this lovely nativity a month ago, having been recommended it by a fellow nursery manager who has seemingly used it every year for the past 5 years! Now I understand why. It really is absolutely wonderful in every way and perfect for this age range. The performance was so easy to stage and got great feedback. Thank you."
by Melissa Gordon

Excellent
"The Learn2soar early years nativities are so good. Over the last ten years we've used 4 different ones in our day nursery, Our First Nativity - One and Two. Our First Christmas Play and C-h-r-i-s-t-m-a-s Spells Christmas. They're all so easy to use and are of an excellent quality. We have a very wide range of ages in our day nursery but all the children are able to take part fully and enjoy the songs so much. These nativities really are perfect for very young children. Thank you for all your help and for producing such brilliant material."
by Ann Fox

Just Perfect
"Last year was literally our first nativity performance as we opened our Preschool in January! I was so pleased to have found Learn2Soar - the performances are simple to rehearse and perform, and the songs are just perfect, especially having the soundtrack sung by children - that just makes it extra special! The best testimony I can give is to tell you that the children from last year are still singing the songs, with 'I'm A Little Angel' being unforgettable. All of our parents were blown away by the performance!"
