Dramatic Play and Development

Dramatic Play and Development

The dramatic play area is a popular place at our centers. Not only do the children have fun creating stories and role-playing different characters, they also develop many important skills while engaging in dramatic play including:

  • Social/Emotional: cooperation, negotiation
  • Physical: small muscle skills
  • Cognitive: imagination
  • Language: explanation, asking questions
