About this title


Written for the wide range of practitioners working with young children, this book gives guidance on both the theory and the practical management of drama in the early years. The relationship between 'pretend play' and the cognitive and affective development of young children is emphasized, having much to inform us about the children in our care. Major themes are children's need to experience quality talk and their engagement in narrative through story-making.

The authors have a wide range of experience in early Years teaching and in teacher training. Through their work, they are aware of the importance of drama for the development of the young child. Parents and practitioners are encouraged to explore drama activities and examples are given of fantasy play taken from pre-school, nursery and infant settings.

All those involved with early years can discover that engaging children in dramatic activity is both a natural form of behavior and a powerful learning medium.
