Dramatic Play

Dramatic play enhances childhood development in four major areas: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language. At Kaplan, our aim is to supply caregivers and preschool teachers with the materials, props, and staging necessary to set the scene for children. Engaging in healthy pretending helps children understand the world they live in while strengthening personal skills and friendships. Our dramatic play materials range from life-like baby dolls and animal playsets to realistic play food and kitchen sets.
