At S.U.C.C.E.ED. we encourage development through the use of structured play. With the holidays around the corner, we compiled a list of our toys.
Here are some toys that promote solitary and/or spectator play skills
Solitary Play: 0-24 months. This is the stage when a child plays alone. They are not interested in playing with others quite yet. Not always noticing other children around them.
Spectator Play: 24-30 months. A child will observe other children playing.
Here are some toys that promote associative-cooperative play
Associative Play: 36-48 months. A child starts to interact with others during play, but there is not a large amount of interaction. They start to turn-take, interest in small group activities, resolve conflicts and have imaginative play. They want to know how and why things work. Start having friends (preferred child).
Cooperative Play: 48+ months. A child plays together with others and has interest in both the activity and other children involved in playing. There is shared goal, play is organized, and participants have assigned roles.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
