The investigators in this project have encountered problems when it comes to creating and implementing dramatic play in their classrooms. The investigators have identified their problems, and in an attempt to solve these problems they have thoroughly explored and explained the importance of play to young children. The investigators have also created eight different dramatic play centers that they feel are fun, promote learning, and are developmentally appropriate.
