You don’t have to look far to see the benefits and the value of role play in our little ones’ development. There’s no denying that pretend play is feeding the imagination and encourages children to experiment and test out the many life skills they need in life as they play and learn.
Everyday children are exposed to new experiences that capture their curiosity and imaginations. How? Why? Pretend play is developmental for children as they replay what they have seen, heard and learned, experiencing trying things for the first time and finding out more about it.
The nature of role play is a social thing. If you listen while your child is in one of the wonderful play areas you will hear them practicing many social skills that they will need to get along in life. It is an opportunity for their imagination and social skills to grow, by role playing with their friends or new acquaintances they will make at Land of Make Believe. It will develop their listening and communication skills, let their confidence grow and think about situations or events from another person’s perspective and help them to understand real life situations.
