Pretend play is also known as imaginative play, and is a skill that most children develop naturally by around 11 to 18 months of age. This is where a child pretends that there is more happening than what’s physically present.

Pretend Play in Singapore

For example, they might feed a doll by putting a spoon to its mouth, even though the doll is not alive and the spoon is empty. They might also pretend to be someone else, and they usually begin with imitating other role-models in their lives, such as parents, teacher, doctor, or even their favourite cartoon characters. As their play skills develop, they create stories that become increasingly complex and dynamic, involving various different elements and challenges.

Pretend play by educational therapy in Singapore

Throughout this process, children also work on their social and language skills as they learn to communicate their ideas with each other and practice skills such as negotiation, compromise, conflict resolution, problem-solving and perspective taking.

How Does It Work?

A pretend play group is led by an experienced therapist who facilitates and guides the children in playing together and communicating with one another. At Total Communication, our educational therapists use modelling and guidance to help children acquire appropriate vocabulary and grammar while also extending their play abilities.

Who Can Participate?

Children from age 3 onwards who are delayed in language development and/or pretend play skills.
