Dramatic Play is an important part of the education of young children.
When children are pretending, they are developing essential social-emotional skills! They are also practicing many other important skills such as math, literacy, and physical development.
Many early childhood settings have a basic housekeeping area with a kitchen set, table, dress-up, and baby dolls. These materials are essential to early childhood classrooms and should always be available.
