Kids Sensory Exploration Class Learn How Enrolling Your Child in a Sensory Exploration Class can Benefit their Development

As children grow to understand the world by using their five senses, we can help them along in their development and keep learning fun through dedicated enrichment classes geared toward sensory exploration. But what does the term “sensory exploration” even mean? Here’s what it is, why it’s important, and what you can expect from a great sensory exploration class.

What is Sensory Exploration?

As the name suggests, sensory exploration involves a child using their senses to explore the world around them. Many people first think of children picking up and feeling objects of different textures when they hear the term “sensory exploration,” and this is certainly one piece of the puzzle. However, sensory exploration or sensory play is not only about the sense of touch, but also involves the other four senses as well.

Why is Sensory Exploration Important?

The best way for anyone to learn — children and adults alike — is through engaging their five senses as heavily as possible. Sensory exploration is a crucial part of children’s journeys to understand the world, and a critical tool in healthy brain development. Young children work to understand the objects, people and feelings around them through their five senses in sensory exploration. Children can also process sounds and textures that may have overwhelmed them or brought on anxiety in the past, in a safe and constructive environment that will help them learn how to manage these inputs.

In addition to helping children along in their cognitive development, sensory exploration classes also help children develop body awareness and balance as they engage in targeted play designed to help them learn and experiment with their surroundings.

Enrolling your child in a sensory exploration class at Romp n' Roll is an excellent way to provide a social outlet while developing important sensory skills.

Our sensory exploration class is a hit for kids and parents.

Examples of Activities in Sensory Exploration Class

One of the best ways for children to explore their five senses is to play with other children! Structured playtime allows children to develop important social skills while also working on their motor, language and speech skills in a fun and memorable environment. At Romp n' Roll, engaging activities like playing with bubbles help children to connect with one another while learning new things about the world around them.

Building small structures and objects using age-appropriate tools like blocks and legos can help children better understand concepts like gravity and balance as they test them out for themselves. These activities also allow children to collaborate with one another, honing speech and communication skills as well as presenting opportunities for emotional regulation and teamwork.

Through songs, children can develop their language skills and even begin to make sense of verbal storytelling. Music classes can involve instruments that give children the opportunity to explore their senses of touch and sound while also coming to understand their own mobility and body sense more accurately. Especially for children who may become overwhelmed in loud environments, taking a sensory exploration class that involves musical activities can help children learn how to process and manage auditory input.

Making art is a wonderful opportunity for self-expression and a means for children to better understand a variety of textures and visual inputs. Through activities like fingerpainting, children can grow in their comfort levels with wet textures and come to understand differences in color and lighting on the page.

At more advanced ages, using tools like brushes, crayons and markers can aid in the development of fine motor skills and body awareness. Art-based activities give children the chance to experiment, communicate and grow in their understanding and processing of a wide range of textures, colors and visual inputs.

Children who participate in a sensory exploration class can learn new things about their environment and themselves while socializing with other children and having fun doing it! These classes also give you a chance to connect with other parents of young children and build new friendships in the process.

The more your child is exposed to the activities provided in a sensory exploration class, the better and stronger their brain pathways and learning abilities can grow to be.

Enhance memory and calm anxiety for your child through sensory exploration classes at Romp n' Roll. Enroll your child today!

REVISED: These guys really care about their clients! The manager (who is terrific!) noticed my concerns and took time to talk thru/address them. So we're hoping some of our frustrations are coming to an end as they open more classes and hire more staff. As I said in my previous review - my daughter loves this place and...
