Students in preschool 4 at Day Nursery in Avon were busy in the Dramatic Play area of their classroom this morning. Dramatic play is central to children’s healthy development and learning during the preschool years.
At Day Nursery our teachers develop their weekly lesson plans based on the interest of their students and guided by the Creative Curriculum®. Every classroom includes an area designed to inspire creative and imaginative play. In the dramatic play area, children break through the restrictions of reality. They pretend to be someone or something different from themselves and make up situations and actions that go along with the role they choose. When children engage in dramatic play they deepen their understanding of the world and develop skills that will serve them throughout their lives.
