Dre Twt is a children’s role play centre, it is  a  “Twt” version of a town with realistic locations, reflecting the roles that we know and love within our community, such as a supermarket, beauty salon, vet surgery, theatre, cafe, builders yard and Post office, with a mini road that links them altogether.

The Importance of Play

Play is so important for child development that it has been recognised by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child.

Fred Rogers once said “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood”

Play is more than just fun and games it’s important learning. Research shows that play is extremely important  for children’s brain development.

Children learn the most within the first  5 years of their life, this is because a child’s brain is at its most flexible. This is a crucial time for learning and growth.

The things that children  learn along the way can set them up for later on in life.

Unstructured play, where children can take the lead for themselves without being told what to do or how to do it will help them to do things for themselves,  lead others, work in groups help them to share and negotiate with others.

Imaginative play helps language development. As children involve other children or an adult in their imaginative play, they begin to share ideas and build on their language.

Through play children begin to develop their whole self,  they become less stressed as they relax in their play. 

Imaginative play can also help develop fine and gross motor skills. From using hair clips in the hair dressers to pushing a trolly in the supermarket. 

Role play can help children make sense of their world, it  helps to develop their imagination and to be creative. It also helps them to further progress on ideas they already know. This type of play helps children to problem solve.

Play also offers an ideal opportunity for parents and carers  to engage fully with their children.
