I agree with MelsKids. There are a lot of lessons that can go with playing with dolls. Are they dressing the dolls and improving their fine motor coordination? Are they pretending to be their mommies and answering their cries, feeding them and taking care of them? You could write down what they're talking about with their babies and hang it up next to the pictures. Or could could make a chart about what babies need. You could even invite in a parent who has a little baby (if you don't have any in childcare) and have them be a special guest, talking about how they take care of their baby.
