At Ark we are now creating a sensory garden, together with the children! The children have planted seeds in specially constructed containers and are already watching as these grow into things they can see, feel, smell and eventually eat. This process of seeing and helping the garden grow from scratch gives the children a wonderful chance to explore nature and to create a space in which they can learn, relax and play together. The children put the first seeds in the earth and will enjoy their home-grown salad and veggies soon! Walking the sensory path the children will get to experience all kinds of natural shapes and structures, feeding their curiosity and tickling their senses. By creating, exploring and caring for their own sensory garden our children gain more self-esteem, become more aware of and feel safer in their environment and of course, have a lot of fun with their friends! Please feel free to visit our sensory garden!
