This workshop examines ways in which infants learn through their senses, and how the senses are interconnected. These sensory connections are the infant’s building blocks for the increasingly complex thoughts and concepts that develop through our childhood. We will explore how we as parents and child care providers can enhance the infant’s opportunities for sensory learning through thoughtful practice, using natural elements and a variety of simple props and equipment.
Suitable for child care providers of children 0-3 years of age.
