Program Description

Event Details

Stories, Songs, and Senses is a sensory play class for children 12 months - 3 years old and their caregiver. Class will begin with a story and songs. Then it's time to get messy! There will be 3-4 sensory bins filled with various materials and textures as well as 1-2 art activities, all related to a central theme. Play with your child at each of the stations or stick with a favorite - watching as they dig into the mess and learn about the world and themselves.

Liz Ballantyne runs Stories, Songs, and Senses here in New Canaan and is a mom to a 5 year old and 1 year old. She holds a Masters in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education and has over 17 years of teaching experience. Liz believes that sensory play is one of the best ways to foster brain development in young children and it is so much fun! At home, it can be hard to provide lots of messy learning experiences which is one reason she began a sensory play class.
