Imaginary play is a natural and essential aspect of early development as children play on their own or work together as a group. In an action research project on 'Play in the Sandpit', Jarrett et al. (2011) suggested that this form of play has social and cognitive benifits and refers to Piaget's play levels that identify a degree of "mental complexity" as children learn important concepts such as science and math principles.

I recently read an paper on challenging behaviour titled 'Prevention and Intervention for the Challenging Behaviors of Toddlers and Preschoolers' by Diane Powell, PhD; Glen Dunlap, PhD; Lise Fox, PhD. This paper delves into early identification of such behaviour and strategies on how to resolve them.
