Curious Little Explorers
Event Information
In this class, your little ones become curious explorers through a series of interactive and sensorial play-based learning activities.
Our explorers experiment with paint and colour mixing, and investigate different textures and layers. They get to use their little hands and feet to investigate the importance of touch and feel. In this class, our environment works as the ‘Third Teacher’, a concept inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach. In this safe creative space, our little ones can share with their friends and family.
Sensory play encourages learning through experimentation, discovery, curiosity, problem solving and creativity. Children develop a strong sense of identity and wellbeing, connect and contribute to their own imaginative worlds, becoming confident and involved learners.

When: 1 February to 22 March (8 sessions)
Tuesdays, 10-10.45 am
