Dramatic Play - Kitchen Remodeling Project
Wheat Early Childhood Center
When preschoolers enter a new classroom, they are drawn to the Housekeeping Area. They cannot help but explore the child-sized replicas of the very items found in their own kitchens at home. They happily engage in complex role play, actively working through scenarios they have seen in person but may not have fully understood. For children to receive the most benefit from this sort of interaction, they must not be distracted by pieces that are in need of repair or come with repeated teacher warnings such as “You need to be careful with that or it will break.” With the help of this grant, I will purchase quality, wood replacements that will last for decades, ensuring that my students have the opportunity to reach their full imagination potential.
