Expanding Children’s Imaginative and Dramatic Play Series (all 3 sessions) - In Person or Live Stream


Have you ever watched a child pick up an object and pretend it is a zooming car or put on a cape and become someone else? In imaginative and dramatic play children are using objects to represent something else while giving it an action or motion. The process of pretending builds many skills such as language, emotional intelligence, and thinking.

Session 1 - April 14, 2022
Participants will have an opportunity to explore and reflect upon the research and resources and connect with others to share experiences, ideas, knowledge, and develop an understand the principle of children’s imaginative and dramatic play as well as study the social stages of play, play types, and play personality.

Session 2 - April 28, 2022
Building upon the principle of children’s imaginative and dramatic play, participants will consider how children use objects and environments to represent their thoughts and ideas. There will be opportunities to explore materials, items, props, and environments to support children’s learning, for all ages, along with the links to How Does Learning Happen? Ontario’s Pedagogy for the Early Years.

Session 3 - May 12, 2022
The final session in the series will put into practice the principles and knowledge gained in sessions 1 and 2. Participants will engage in hands-on experiences while considering the benefits, developmental skills, and experiences they can offer children in their imaginative and dramatic play areas.
