About The Event
Sensory play classes will stimulate your child's sense of smell, touch, taste, sight and hearing. The idea behind sensory play is that it encourages little ones to play, create, investigate and explore. Each class is filled with unique items for little ones discover and support their development. Our program runs for 6 weeks.
What are the Benefits of Sensory Play?
Building and developing nerve pathways in the brain that allow children to complete more complex tasks at an earlier age. Enhancing problem solving skills - working with materials to achieve their desired outcome. Promoting development of fine and gross motor skills by squeezing, pulling, dumping and pouringIncreasing vocabulary - using large words to describe items in the class will develop a larger vocabulary earlier for each child. Social interaction - with small class sizes children can feel comfortable with their peers at each station
What can I expect at each Class?
Each week features 4 different stations from messy, to cozy and even edible. Soft instrumental music playing in the background to promote the sense of hearing as well as keeping a calm environment for children to get the most out of each class. Each class begins with songs and an explanation of the stations set up. Classes run 45 minutes in length and always provide a chance for parents to chat at the end. We will have the occasional guest appearance of specialists for parents to connect and share.
