Why dolls belong in kindergarten
from We Are Teachers
Wyatt, a dark-haired kindergartener, carefully pushes his doll into a highchair. Consulting a list on the wooden table next to him, he announces, "It's time for lunch!" He takes a bowl and spoon from the shelf and says, "Please eat your food, baby!" While this might seem cute behavior to the untrained eye, it is really social and cognitive learning to an educated professional. Wyatt is learning how to care for others, empathize, and follow a predictable schedule. This kind of practice is critical to early childhood development.
