communication

This is a really social class. Young children are often unable to verbally communicate and so they will begin to initiate play by offering you equipment or pulling your hand to take you where they would like to be.

You can also encourage the use of certain words in a context for example describing the texture of things or the sound of things.

imagination

Each activity is open ended which allows your little one to explore in any way they like. There is no right or wrong and they can let their imagination take them where ever they want to go.

It also allows them to become more familiar with all their senses as they are able to touch, smell, taste and hear what they are exploring.

physical skills

It allows them to manipulate using their hands, either by simply using just their hands or using tools to scoop, pour or dig. This helps them to develop the muscle tone in the larger muscle groups arms. It also works on hand-eye coordination which will help them to develop control with using spoons and forks.

concentration

As they work through using all their senses whilst exploring your little one will be showing a high level of concentration. It also encourages them to make their own plan and see it through. Essential skills for life.
