The Seeds of Dramatic Play for Infants and Toddlers

MEMBER COST:  $15.00

Pre-registration is required


Facilitated by Alicia Larson, CCRR, BA, ECE
Please note: This workshop is open to all members; child care providers and parents.
At what age do you think children engage in pretend play? Please join us for a discussion on how the seeds of socio-dramatic play are sown during the first three years of life and how this is the foundation for future pretend play skills.  We will also look at developmentally appropriate programming for infants and toddlers in relation to pretend play and how it also fosters other areas of development at the same time.  Lastly we will discuss how to set up your environment for play experiences and the role of the parent/child care provider. 
Please bring a pad of paper and pen to jot down the many examples we will generate over the course of the evening.
