early childhood education, dramatic play


Children learn in many different ways. One area of the classroom that can greatly impact the social, cognitive, and emotional development of every child is the dramatic play area. Research has shown that early childhood educators must and can create a dramatic play area that is inviting, stimulating, developmentally appropriate, and educational. We, as educators and those interested in early childhood education, can take the time to create an extraordinary dramatic play area that entices a child again and again. What we take the time to do today will impact the life of a child forever.
