Learning to make sense of the world through play

 

Why is this important?

Pretend play helps children understand how objects are used in the real world and also leads to an awareness that toys can represent real things and people. As play skills develop, so does the knowledge of the words that represent objects as they are heard in context during play. Play is essential for children’s learning and for the development of language.
