Adding a Sensory Component
We know young children learn best through hands on play, but sensory play is more than just fun! When children engage in sensory play, it encourages learning through exploration, curiosity, problem solving and creativity. Sensory play also builds nerve connections in the brain and is related to the development of language and motor skills. Sensory play is calming for young children and helps them self-regulate. Adding sensory play opportunities throughout the day not only keeps young children interested and engaged in the activities provided, it can help keep young learners emotionally regulated.
By keeping your environment fresh and new, your children will be excited to continue to explore, play and learn every day.
