age 1-3yrs WORKSHOPS

Children learn about the world around them through their senses, in fact they rely on them. The desire to engage with sensory discovery comes naturally to little ones – that is why babies put everything in their mouths!

Sensory play is any hands-on activity that gives little ones the opportunity to safely discover and explore using a combination of their senses, including touch, smell, taste, movement, balance, sight and hearing. In our messy play/art classes, they will explore and use their senses in a new, meaningful way.

Research has shown that messy play is an important part of early childhood development providing lots of opportunities to develop and learn. Some of the benefits of sensory play include:

  • Stimulates brain development by exposing children to new sensations and experiences

  • Supports language development by giving little ones new ways to talk about their world

  • Fosters positive interactions and social learning through observation of how peers engage with an activity

  • Builds self-confidence and awareness as they interact with materials in a creative and spontaneous way

  • Supports fine motor skills as they manipulate materials in different ways

  • Helps regulate internal discomfort by providing tools for managing frustration and a strategy for calming down

  • Promotes scientific process opportunities through creating, investigating, exploring, and problem solving

The Basics:

  • Led by early childhood educators, a variety of sensory activities will be offered each week for the little ones to enjoy — from different tactile experiences, to messy art projects, and creative discovery.

  • Each class also will include:
    - Snack time (Age appropriate)
    - Play time in our indoor play stations
    - Goodbye Bubbles and Stickers

  • All classes are 60 minutes long.
