Role Play

At Enfys Hapus Nursery we recognise role play is an important part of child development, as it builds confidence, creativity communication, physical development and problem solving. Along with being a fun activity, it also allows children to get into character and act out real life roles or fictional performances. It can be purely child-led, and encourages children to take risks and be creative with the role they are playing.

Doctors, teachers, builders, police and shopkeeper role play equipment is just some of the things available to help and encourage empathy between children. It allows them to act out real life situations and get creative! It increases a child’s ability to positively interact with others, giving them the responsibility to act accordingly, effectively disguising learning as play!

Allowing children to act out real life situations, such as grocery shopping, camping or driving gives them the opportunity to learn about real-life environments and situations at their own pace. It can also build confidence for when they are in those situations at a later date. When they engage in this type of role play, they can develop their verbal communication skills and physical mannerisms by practising what they have already learnt in real life situations.
