Importance of role play

Role play is a very important part of a child’s education. The imagination is a powerful tool which as we know is innate in some children but needs
encouraging in others. At Buttercups Childcare & Kindy we provide children with the opportunity to develop their imagination by setting up inviting early learning environments e.g. home corner, hair studio, hospital corner etc. This wonderful teddy bear picnic was set up for our babies recently!

Imaginative play not only aids intellectual development but also improves children’s social skills and their creativity. In addition, it gives children a chance to play out events that they have observed or experienced in real life!
