Preschoolers are ready for more organized social play. They are not only interested in their own ideas, but also in the actions and feelings of others.
Preschoolers learn quickly through play. Learning the difference of how things feel, look and sound help children develop intellectual skills.
Preschoolers love to dress up and pretend. By providing dress up clothes and equipment you are encouraging creative dramatic play. These activities give children a chance to act out their feelings and emotions. They pretend, imagine, create, and imitate what they think it’s like to be grown up.
