The two-year olds in the Day Nursery Ruth A. Lilly Center, 3522 N. Central, love dressing up. All classrooms are set up with hands-on learning centers. These children are playing the Dramatic Play/Housekeeping area. To get the most out of dramatic play, children need a variety of materials, equipment, and props to encourage creative expression and imagination.
While you are doing your spring cleaning, keep Day Nursery in mind. We always welcome gently used donations of both men and women’s clothes and shoes as well as items that can be incorporated into prop boxes. Here’s an example of items you may have around the house that would be perfect for a restaurant-themed prop box: old take out menus, tablecloth or placemats, dishes, apron, vase and flowers, chef hat, order-taking pads, plastic plates.
