Home Town

In our make-believe, kid-sized Home Town, children role play as they learn about the people, places and processes that make a community work. Working phones, pretend cash registers and money, and special mail deliveries from the post office help children build math, literacy and social skills as they interact with their neighborhood partners, learn about workplace roles and responsibility and collaborate to get the job done!
