All of our classrooms have many different areas for the children to explore-art centers, science tables, cozy reading areas, block areas, dramatic play and more. Last week the Chipmunks had a great time playing with baby dolls in the dramatic play area. The Chipmunks fed, swaddled, bathed, changed and rocked their babies! Dramatic (or pretend) Play is very important to young children. Dramatic play allows children to use their imaginations, and helps social/emotional development.
