With its curved roof and a nice desk and comfy bench inside, the Forest Cottage evokes the urge to play. Children come back for more play over and over again, creating dramatic play scenarios and role play that know no limits. The desk and bench inside will welcome breaks and function as tables, too. The stair and slope in and out the house create varied access points that inspire both crawling and climbing. This trains cross-coordination, a skill that is fundamental to reading. When children engage in dramatic play, they play out an understanding of everyday scenarios, negotiating through their life observations. While doing so, they constantly talk and communicate with their peers, greatly stimulating language and thinking skills.
