Imaginative Play with Early Years

Imaginative play is a really important part of a child’s education and one of the reasons it has a great focus in Early Years. It helps to develop a child’s imagination which in turn helps to support them in many other areas of the curriculum. In Early Years we actively encourage our children to role play on a daily basis, following their own experiences and interests to develop child centered play.  As it is such an important part of a child’s education we help to equip the children with spaces, scenarios, props and the support they need to explore their real life or imaginary worlds. The imaginative play not only aids intellectual development but also improves their creativity. It gives children a chance to play out events that they have observed or experienced in real life. In addition it also helps to create opportunities to develop their speech and language skills, as the children act out  their stories, as well as developing their social skills and relationships with others as they learn to work together.
