This virtual program provides children and
their caregiver with opportunities for an open- ended, hands-on play with a focus on sensory exploration. The goal is to support children’s sense of wonder and exploration by providing new sensory opportunities. With educator guided sessions, together we explore items such as home-made play-dough, dried beans, rice, cornmeal, and more! We create meaningful and theme-based sensory boxes with these materials for children to continue to explore long after our class ends. Carve out a little sensory studio in your home.
