Preschool Teacher Cynthia DeJesús involves children in all aspects of planning and developing a new dramatic play center that is related to their center’s ongoing investigation of nature. After a field trip, the children create props and set up their play area. Teachers model the roles of the people who work in such a setting and then children are able to play out those roles with a clear sense of purpose.

This video was funded by the Connecticut Office of Early Childhood to support implementation of the Connecticut Early Learning and Development Standards.
