Home Corner

Our ‘Home Corner’ provides an opportunity for children to involve themselves in individual and cooperative play. It enables children to carry out numerous activities including stirring, filling, emptying, pouring, shaking, mixing, rolling, folding, zipping, buttoning, snapping, brushing, trying things on and taking them off. They may imitate cooking sequences they have seen at home or pretend to feed a doll or stuffed animal.

At Enfys Hapus Nursery the home corner allows children to explore, imitate and engage in pretend play either by themselves or with friends. We provide a range of resources related to home life which allows for endless fun as children act out familiar roles for example, mum and dad, grandparents and siblings. They learn about the emergency services and are able to become the firefighter, police officer, doctor or teacher.

We encourage children to re-enact events they have experienced or heard about – visiting the dentist, going to the emergency room, moving, going shopping, talking on the phone, cleaning up after a flood, having a birthday party, dressing up to “go out,” celebrating holidays, going to church, and attending weddings, picnics, and movies. By providing a setting for role play, the home corner allows children to make sense of their immediate world. Children have numerous opportunities to work together, express their feelings, and use language to communicate roles and respond to one another’s needs and requests.
