Imaginative Play Program

Imaginative play supports the development of social and emotional skills, language, idea generation, problem solving and abstract thought. Lower primary classes focus on sequencing play actions, object substitution (e.g. pretending one object is something different, for example a bowl might be used as a hat!), and doll and teddy play. 

Here are some photos of our wonderful preps having fun in the playroom
