Sensory Development...Serious Play! October 28 2014, 0 Comments
Sensory development is all about the growth of the five senses: hear, taste, touch, smell and vision. Senses will grow/change through the end of a child’s second year.
Why is sensory development so important? When it comes to developing the senses there’s a domino effect. For example, if an infant’s hearing in not fully developed her speech and language development can be gravely impaired.
Ever wonder why babies always seem to be placing their hands and anything they can grab in their mouth? Infants’ mouths and hands are especially sensitive. In other words, they are busy developing their senses of touch and taste.
HIP HIP HORRAY…it’s time for PLAY!
