From birth through to early childhood, children use their senses to explore and try to make sense of the world around them.
They do this by touching, tasting, smelling, seeing, moving and hearing.
Sensory activities also play a key role in the maturation process of young children.
Activities that require manipulation and touch enable children to heighten the adaptive response tthey playedhrough their senses. They are an integral component in early childhood education.
They not only engage the child, but stimulate cognitive development. To access this, your young one participated in an activity where they played with you elephants on “savannahs” made out of pasta, rice, and beans. Students enjoyed creating stories with their friends, engaging with their senses while doing so!
