Sprouts are The Nooks youngest and tiniest of explorers. In these classes its about introducing colour, reflection, sound and smells and encouraging bonding with each other.
Seedlings are beginning to move and use more of their bodies to explore. This class is about texture and the different ways to explore. We also explore sounds, smells and objects of interest.
Buds are the real movers of the group. Objects are becoming more familiar and fun and exciting ways to explore. Best of all we get to make some mess!
Youngs Buds are very similar to Buds, but we we have opportunity to explore more complex materials and understand their meaning. Giving opportunity for Young Buds to learn through their exploration.
Sunflowers will have more focussed group but still just as fun. We are on a learning journey with obvious outcomes. Still using our senses to explore and learn but with objects with a theme.
Have The Nook visit your setting and enjoy exploration with exclusive use of equipment.
The Natural Sensory Nook is about offer experiences and opportunity for children to explore in their own time and way. Learning comes from opportunity and this is exactly what The Nook can bring to your setting. With exclusive use of all equipment, including the sensory light panel, we can enjoy 1 hour of a sensory journey. The hour is split into two age groups and some song and rhyme time.
Studies have shown that children as old as 10 years old benefit from sensory play and exploration. It can be used in calming behaviour, educating in numeracy, literacy and more. The Natural Sensory Nook offers an hours session in small groups for school aged children to partake in a planned sensory activity to aid their learning and emotional well being.
Our new drop in class is for those who cant commit to a regular booking but still need something to do. Come with friends or even if you have siblings of different ages and you need to tier them out, The Nook has a wonder of Natural resources for you to explore altogether.
Come and join The Natural Sensory Nooks Drop In class for 1.5 hours of sensory play, songs and of course the all time favourite, BUBBLES!!
You will find the pricing for the Drop In slightly more than a standard class, this is due to the extra time for sensory play and the ability for different ages to attend. (Price found in the Price section of this page)
