Children and even adults learn best and retain the most information when they engage their senses. Many of our favorite memories are associated with one or more of our senses. Providing opportunities for children to actively use their senses as they explore their world through ‘sensory play’ is crucial to brain development – it helps to build nerve connections in the brain’s pathways.
This leads to a child’s ability to complete more complex learning
tasks and supports cognitive growth, language development, gross motor
skills, social interaction and problem solving skills.
Today our friends in our Preschool classes are exploring their sense of touch!
