Why is sensory play important?
Sensory play is any play that stimulates your child’s senses. Taste, smell, sight, hearing are all part of sensory experiences. Language development, fine motor skills, problem solving, cognitive growth and social development are all benefits of sensory play. Sensory play plays a critical role in building nerve connections in the brain pathways which lead to children being able to complete complex tasks. At Ollie Owls we provide opportunities for children to actively use their senses to explore a variety of sensory play and activities.
