Through sensory exploration, the students, have the opportunity to get messy and freely explore multiple sensory stations. Students engage all five senses as they investigate the various materials: water, sand, feathers, etc. Sensory enhances the understanding of cause and effect, learning how to hold developmentally appropriate science tools and deciphering the difference between edible items and non-edible items.
Cutting edge toys, props and varied art supplies are available in every class as students are introduced to different art mediums. Verbal, social and fine motor skills are developed through imaginative art projects and an energetic, musical circle time that explores and highlights the world around us. Our focus is always on process-oriented as opposed to product-oriented art lessons as children are encouraged to complete the project individually with minimal assistance from instructors. Math and science learning tools - magnets, clay, water bins, artificial snow, lasers, and more - are incorporated into the classroom providing each student unique challenges at the individual level. These exploratory activities encourage an inquisitive mind and introduce the concept of cause and effect.
Our Sensory Class includes any activity that stimulates your young child’s senses: touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. Sensory activities and sensory tables facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore. Spending time stimulating their senses helps children develop cognitively, linguistically, socially and emotionally, physically and creatively. Learn all about child development through sensory play, find activities and crafts that encourage sensory play and discover how to make your own sensory table at home.
