PART OF THE SERIES: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: INFANT AND TODDLER CARE
All of the child's developing senses are used in understanding his surroundings. Teachers can enhance this by giving the child time to explore how something feels, looks, tastes, smells and sounds. They plan for the child to explore specific mediums such as a texture walk or whipped cream in greater depth. The various art experiences are prepared with sensory exploration in mind. Teachers and caregivers show us how they plan materials specifically for involving the senses, providing a sense of safety and security so the very young child can use the "messy" activities with freedom. They share with us their amazement at the continued interest and long period of time the young child stays involved in these activities.
