While brainstorming ideas for our Party Centre, students felt we should have cakes for birthdays. They looked to books obtained from the public library for inspiration when designing cakes and cookies they might create to enhance their dramatic play.
As it turns out, we have enough cakes and cookies to start our own bake shop, so perhaps we will further extend our dramatic play centre to include a bakery.
A play-based Kindergarten program, offers an opportunity for students to develop life skills, that we hope they will carry on into their future lives. We want them to become free thinkers, make good choices, explore creative outlets that may inspire their futures. Where one might see play, painting and gluing – teachers see pastry chefs, cake designers, cake decorators or bakery owners.
