What is sensory development?
Sensory development refers to the maturing of the five familiar senses: to hear, smell, taste, touch and see. It also involves the way your child's nervous system receives input from these senses and then forms an appropriate motor or behavioral response. When a child is young and developing, it is important to engage or activate each of the sensory systems so that they can integrate and grow into one cohesive sensory system.
In Catiline, we design various activities that help to stimulate a child's senses. That include touch different materials, understand the different between hard and soft, cold and hot; tasting different food and learn about sweet, sour and salty; listen to different musical instruments and differentiate their sounds. Through sensory play, children start to build many of the foundational life skills they need in order to be successful in the years to come.
