Children are full of imagination . . . .
If given some toys, songs, or other props, a child can easily journey off to a magical world of play and learning. They might pretend to be a doctor caring for a sick teddy bear, or a clerk selling fruits and vegetables in a grocery store.
The Kent District Library is thrilled to introduce the Imagination Station to its early childhood literacy program offerings. An Imagination Station is a simple structure that fosters a child’s imagination through dramatic play.
Dramatic play is a key component of early childhood development. Dramatic play helps children develop creativity and imagination, knowledge of how the world works, language skills, and cooperation with others. From this play, children begin to develop life-long literacy skills.
Thank you to our friends at Meijer and Fifth Third Bank for sponsoring our first Imagination Stations at the Walker and Kentwood branches. The Wendy’s Imagination Station is scheduled to open at the Wyoming branch in early January. Additional Imagination Stations will be introduced during 2011.
You can help feed the imagination of a young child.
