Problem Solving / Play   Associative play begins at this age and we will be supporting your child to seek out others.  We focus on your child’s use of imagination, dress-up, pretend play, creative activities and the ability to start to understand emotions.  We look that your child is being able to consistently use objects symbolically in play.   Pictured: Sia with her oven mits for taking the eggs out of the oven!
