The term ‘sensory learning’ refers to the way in which babies, toddlers and young children use all their senses to gather information as they play. Sensory play and learning are part of all the living and learning experiences in which children involve themselves.

This Everyday Learning Series title explores:

  • the close connection between sensory play and learning
  • how each of the senses contributes to young children’s learning
  • the important role the outdoor environments and natural spaces play in enriching children’s sensory experiences
  • how everyday resources can be used to create sensory-rich learning environments for children.

The senses provide the tools that children need to be effective learners. The challenge and joy for early childhood professionals is to recognise the endless potential for supporting children’s sensory engagement, and to create spaces for play and learning that are sensory-rich.
