Aristotle said, “There is nothing in the mind which is not first in the senses”.
Montessori provides a complete curriculum area devoted to enhancing the child’s ability to process and refine information gained via the 5 senses.
Minor differences in sizes, shades, sounds and sensations challenge the children to concentrate.
Some learning difficulties have been linked to the brain’s ability to sort and process information gained from sight, hearing etc.
The Sensorial curriculum provides the opportunity for the young child to be developing neural pathways to develop the sorting and processing within the brain.
Additionally, the Sensorial curriculum provides pre-literacy and pre-numeracy preparation. The equipment appeals to the child’s interest in building towers and putting objects in holes.
