Benefits of Sensory Play

Sensory activities, in addition to being fun and interesting for babies and young children, encourages them to explore, investigate and refine their thresholds for different sensory information. It helps strengthen a range of developmental skills, for example:

  • Helps to build nerve connections to the brain

  • Encourages the development of motor skills

  • Supports language development

  • Encourages scientific thinking and problem solving

  • Involves mindful activities which are beneficial for all children

 

We have engaged the services of some key specialists including Early Learning Educators, Occupational Therapist and a Child Health Nurse to provide us with their expert opinions in this field to ensure our services provide the best educational experience for your children. This is what they had to say:

 - "When you present a child with an environment that is bright, fun and stimulating, they love to play and learn. Children will use their imaginations, will work and think independently, and they will also learn to work as part of a team to share and create using the materials offered". - Emma, Early Learning Specialist

 - "Messy play helps children in so many ways, be that to relax or express their feelings. They will experiment with different materials, learn about texture and develop hand-eye coordination. It helps with the development and enhancement of memory. Its beneficial for language skills and cognitive growth. It will also enhance their fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and emotional and social interaction. It can build nerve connections in the brain pathways which lead to the child's ability to complete more difficult learning tasks". - Laura, Occupational Therapist

We at Messy Mat Perth understand that different age groups have different sensory needs, therefore we have taken the time to research and ensure that the key elements of sensory play for each age group are met.
