At The Blue Elephant, our private preschool in Frisco works to foster your child’s development through purposeful activities, learning opportunities, and play. At the early education level, so much can be learned through play activities, particularly sensory and motor skills. Our child learning center also understands that young children develop at different stages and that’s why we choose activities that will be enjoyed by all children and can continually help develop important learning milestones for even our youngest babies and toddlers.
Sensory activities facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use their senses and understand the environment around them. A sensory activity can be simple – anything that will help your child explore one or more of their senses – taste, touch, sight, hearing, and smell. The Blue Elephant in Frisco, TX includes a number of sensory activities into our daily curriculum like the following:
Motor skills are formed with the movement of muscles. They are typically categorized into two groups: gross motor skills which involve large muscle groups and fine motor skills which utilize small muscle groups. At The Blue Elephant, we like to encourage and foster activities and play that work on both gross motor skills and fine motor skills. Some of these activities include:
The options for sensory and motor skills are truly endless. That is why The Blue Elephant utilizes these activities and variations of these activities every single day. Slowly, your child will develop these skills and will begin to work on more difficult tasks as they grow at our private preschool in Frisco.
