In this video, we learn about one teacher’s involvement of children in the planning, creation, and use of a dramatic play center that is based on their interests and experiences. Preschool Teacher Amy Doyle describes the strategies she uses to engage children in this process. She also explains the purpose behind her decisions to respond to children in certain ways, and reflects on what they have gained from this experience.

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