When children pretend, they’re using their imaginations to move beyond the bounds of reality. A stick can be a magic wand. A sock can be a puppet. A small child can be a superhero.
We introduced the concept of “Drama in Education” at Huili Nursery Hangzhou in 2021 to achieve Huili’s holistic education, and this year, we incorporated it as part of our teacher training. With this concept, education is no longer merely education itself, but something that helps children to find the just suitable balance with the world, to recognise the needs of others and themselves, and to find the beauty of the world with increasing empathy.
