Well done Christine, occupational therapist, from Growing Early Minds on delivering an informative and imaginative workshop on pretend play in an early childhood setting on 25 July 2018.
Teaming up with Children First Training, this tailored and interactive workshop designed for early child care educators focused on the importance of pretend play.
The workshop went into depth on the important skills children develop through pretend play, Early Learning Years Framework (ELYF) outcomes, the different pretend play stages and strategies on how to facilitate and participate in pretend play.
One of Christine’s fool proof tips she shared was to “allow children access to mundane objects such as cardboard boxes, and watch as their imagination takes them into different worlds!”
