The Importance of Sensory Play 

From birth, we explore our senses through the processing of new information. Through the exploration of new textures, materials, tastes -  sensory play is a valuable way to engage children in activities that will intensify their senses and enrich their learning.

Sensory play encourages discovery and independent reflection,  imagination and creativity. It promotes a child's development and learning in addition to providing a safe and comfortable space when emotionally required.

Social Interaction  

A positive sensory play environment encourages children to interact and work effectively with others, which is essential for a child's development. It is a space to share their ideas and build new relationships.

Body Awareness

Active sensory play helps children become more self-aware and body conscious, which helps them develop a better sense of space around them.

Motor Skills Development 

Children identify objects through touch during tactile sensory play - such as tightening, pulling, pushing and throwing - which helps them develop overall motor skills.

Some equipment works to Improve balance, movement and spatial orientation,  and some of the more visual experiences  can help develop users' visual processing abilities as well as their fine and overall motor skills, facilitating daily life.

Brain and Language Development​

Engaging a child in sensory play helps strengthen brain development for learning, which improves their memory and ability to perform more complex learning tasks.

Sensory play also offers new ways of talking about the world around us. It supports language development and encourages effective communication with others


 With an emphasis on comfort, security and correct lighting, sensory spaces are meant to be nurturing and unconditionally inclusive spaces. 

When a child needs to re-calibrate and self-regulate, there is no greater tool than a moment alone for this reflection. While a therapist should always be present in the sensory space, the equipment used allows users to get into their own thinking space, creating that much needed 'alone' time. 

Cognitive Development 

Sensory play supports a child's cognitive growth by improving their thought process, understanding and reasoning. When children handle new materials, they learn to understand new concepts - such as liquid/solid, fast/slow, warm/cool, etc....

Problem Resolution ​

By experimenting with different objects during sensory play, children develop problem-solving and decision-making skills.

They are required to find solutions to the obstacles encountered during sensory games - such as how to make lights appear, make a pillow vibrate, or make sand stick together.
