What is Socio-dramatic Play?
Early Years practitioners understand the importance of play and are used to developing a balance between adult-led and child-initiated activities. Play allows children to learn about life and practise life skills in a safe environment; they can learn about life and all its intricacies through creative, imaginative role play.
It allows children to develop their social and emotional capabilities whilst learning about themselves, others and the connections between their actions and the consequences.
