The role of sensory stones in learning
Sensory stones are designed to stimulate children's tactile senses, enhancing their learning experiences. The sensory stone collection we offer provides a hands-on approach to education, as it allows children to explore textures, shapes, and weights. This tactile exploration is crucial in the early stages of development, particularly for children with diverse learning needs.
Play stones in nurseries and preschools
Our range of play stones is particularly beneficial for nurseries, foundation units, preschools, and playgroups. These sensory pebbles encourage children to manipulate and move objects and thereby improve their fine motor skills. In settings where hands-on learning is emphasised, play stones can become an invaluable resource for educators.
Supporting child-centred learning
The use of play stones aligns with child-centred learning strategies, such as the creation of EYFS floor books. Our resources, including Blank Big Books, can be used alongside sensory stones to encourage the most important areas of development. This approach ensures that children's voices are heard and their developmental needs are met.
Sensory stones and storytelling
Children's understanding of pictures precedes their ability to read words, making EYFS storybooks a vital educational tool. Sensory stones can be used to complement storybooks and provide a tangible element to the stories being read. This combination of sensory and visual learning aids can support the overall development of young learners.
