Sensory Center

The sensory center offers the opportunity to encourage children’s language use as they explore properties of physical science. It’s a place where children can explore using all of their senses and develop fine motor skills. Children can also develop and practice vocabulary specific to their observations and experiences in this center. Teachers facilitate building language and learning concepts through meaningful conversations as they observe children.
