Small World Play

Small world play refers to imaginative play with ‘small’ toys, encouraging children to use their imaginations and create both everyday and fantasy worlds in familiar surroundings.

It involves processes including active learning and imitation, and allows children to communicate knowledge about life and the world around them in a safe, contained environment.

Whether it’s acting out a well-known home scene, or riding a dragon in a fantasy world; small world play enables children to develop socially, physically and intellectually.
