Through role-play, preschool aged children have the chance to really explore who they are, develop their social skills, and explore things like gender identity. Children often times play dress up and role-play that they are in a specific career, a mom, a dad, or another person that they know. Young children may dress up in the opposite genders clothes, and this is normal at this age.

M. (2011). It should also be noted that many, Head Start preschool teachers are math anxious and their level of math anxiety prevents them from teaching mathematics to preschool aged children, including reasoning and cognitive thinking skills, as much as they should. It is critical for children to develop these reasoning and cognitive skills in order to be successful in future learning. In it’s current state of U.
