Here’s a fun Preschool Health Theme Doctor’s Office Dramatic Play Investigation Station. Of course this post also includes a few big questions to get you started and to get your little kids thinking. You’re definitely going to want to check it out!
We are wrapping up our Health & Fitness theme this week and we’ve been learning about topics like Checkup, Growth, Strength and Balance, and even Rest. It’s been lots of fun.
One of the little guy’s favorites was the Preschool Health Theme Doctor’s Office Dramatic Play Investigation Station. Why am I not surprised?

Preschool Health Theme Doctor’s Office Dramatic Play Investigation Station
- Set out a variety of medical items such as gauze, a toy stethoscope, blankets, bandages, etc.
- Place baby dolls or stuffed animals in the dramatic play area if desired.
- Encourage children to role-play and pretend they are doctors or patients.
- What might you find in a doctor’s office or hospital?
- Who works at a hospital?
- What could you ask the patient?
A few months ago, I got the little guy a Pediatric Nurse Role Play Costume Set and he totally fell in love. Not surprisingly, he’s taken a huge interest.
I even pulled out the real stethoscope for him to explore. You know, because I wanted to make this activity extra special and he obviously loved every minute of it.
The little guy’s thoughts on what you might find in a doctor’s office or hospital were “medical tools, beds, a floor, and so many ambulances.” Of course we can’t forget about the ambulances. Lol…
And when I asked him who works at a hospital, his response was, “People who help people.” We decided that some of those people who help people are doctors and nurses, but there are a lot of other jobs at a hospital too.
Lately, I’ve been making a point of spending time both during and after the Investigation Station activities exploring each of the Big Questions that are included in the Teacher Guide.
I love that this curriculum puts such an emphasis on learning through play and of course Language and Literacy skills are an important part of that.

As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids. #mgtblogger
