As a result of utilizing the sensory garden as an extended classroom, children were able to participate in a wide range of sensory experiences from education to relaxation.

It has always delighted me how children have this amazing sense of “awe” and are able to see and enjoy every minute of their journey in the discovery of the world. Children learn about the world they live in through their 5 senses. They notice the intricate colors and patterns of a butterfly’s wings as it basks under the sun’s heat. They taste the various flavors of an ice cream cone with every bite they take. They smell the fragrance of a flower as it wafts through the air. They immediately differentiate between rough and smooth by touching the underside of a sunflower. Hearing the sound of a bird can stop them in their tracks and immediately make them lose their concentration, generating thousands of questions in them.

We created a Sensory Garden because children need to be exposed to hands on experiences in order to learn through their 5 senses and the sensory garden created the perfect environment to do just that. Rest assured that you don’t need a large patch of land to have a sensory garden. Our sensory garden is located on a patio outside a classroom. Many plants and vegetables lend themselves to container gardening, with some imagination, a little research and lots of enthusiasm you are on your way.
