D1, D2, D3, D4, D6, C
One setting where children might play is a nursery; the typical age range a child would play in the nursery is aged between 3-4 years. The stage of play for a child to be involved with while playing in the nursery might be associative play stage which means children look to see what other children are doing and may copy them; children may stand at the edge of older children’s games. The types of play that would take place in a nursery is pretend play, this means that the child use there imagination and act out things they have seen and/or heard.
