Like us, babies experience this world through their senses. Dr. Maria Montessori shared her beliefs that sensorial experiences begin at birth. Through senses, the child/baby is studying, learning and beginning to understand the environment. The first few years of a child’s life are the most important years for brain developmental, so it is important to let your baby experience things and be able to use all of their senses. Let’s explore Montessori Sensory.
This is a fun Montessori sensory bin for babies and toddlers. An edible experience for your child’s senses. Enjoy!
