All children learn and develop sensory and motor skills at varying paces, which is why A Promising Tomorrow Early Care & Educational Center engages children in a wide range of age-appropriate sensory activities.
Motor skills are the skills needed for movement and action. These can be categorized into two groups: gross motor skills (this requires the use of large muscle groups to perform actions such as walking, crawling, balancing) and fine motor skills (this utilizes small muscle groups to do things like holding a pencil or picking up things).
Activities that parents and daycare in Ohio can implement to help develop motor skills:
- Building with blocks
- Water play or swimming
- Using balance beams
Our preschool in Toledo, Ohio encourages children to follow their curiosities in using their senses: sight, touch, smell, taste, balance, and hearing. Thus, we provide activities like the following to strengthen their sensory skills:
- Playdough/ clay modeling
- Playing with taste-safe sand
- Playing with sensory table fillers e.g., as colored rice, colored pasta, water, and ice
