Come and play with your child at our sensory stations! Sensory play is any activity that stimulates a child's senses: touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. Children explore and naturally use scientific processes while they play, investigate, create and discover new sensations. This program will incorporate the early literacy skill of play into a variety of sensory experiences. There will be several stations to explore. Caregivers are expected to interact with their child.
