Pretend Play

Pretend play comes naturally to most children, but do you know why? Role-playing and re-enacting the familiar through play is how children come to understand their world, how it works and their role within it. 

When children immerse themselves in the wonderful world of their imagination, they are consolidating what they know, but are also extend their thinking and beginning to learn new concepts about the social world. Role-playing, pretend play and imaginative play (whatever you choose to call it) also supports language, literacy and numeracy skills too!
