Questions to help assess dramatic play area once set up

Here are some questions that teachers can ask themselves once they have a dramatic play center set up and in use.

  • Does the center incorporate a variety of materials that will encourage dramatic play of young children?
  • Does the play center include materials that will stimulate literacy activities?
  • Does the play center include teacher made and commercial props?
  • Are the materials available that promote creativity and flexibility of play?
  • Are all the materials developmentally appropriate?
  • Are play props appropriate to theme?
  • Does the play center reinforce physical, cognitive, and social skills?
  • Are the children involved in play themes?
  • Do projects stem from the play materials?
  • Are children engaged in high levels of both social and cooperative play?
