    This quiz provides a brief overview of the typical ages associated with each level of play. Understanding the ages and stages of play is integral knowledge for anyone with a role in young children's lives.


    What age is typical for Unoccupied Play (i.e. discovering how to move their bodies)?


    What age is typical for Parallel Play (i.e. playing near other children, but not interacting)?


    What age is typical for Associate Play (i.e. participating in an activity related to others in the same area with minimal or no interaction)?


    What age is typical for Cooperative Play (i.e. playing with other children and demonstrating an interest in the same activity)?


    Ages and stages of play are general guidelines and children may develop differently.
