For many years childcare professionals have been using Treasure Baskets. Similarly they are used to support babies/children’s all round learning and development. Furthermore, Treasure Baskets support holistic learning, development and curiosity. This is through
- visual stimulation.
It’s a brilliant idea. Holistic learning works to stimulate and inspire exploration and discovery. In other words, through multi-sensory opportunities and heuristic play.
Above all this enables children to
- build confidence
For instance through the decisions they make.
In addition, when baby shows an interest in something in particular, for example sound, then it’s simple. More items may be added to the basket which support this interest.
A length of metal chain sounds great rattled on a metal bowl. Similarly, a wooden spoon banging on a metal pan or a treasure basket.
This is why our baskets are love. Your baby / child is supported to be in control of their own learning. For instance, to make decisions about their play.
The Montessori teaching method is based on learning through multi-sensory experience. Furthermore, this theory has proven that children benefit from learning in this way.
Originally developed in Italy the Montessori (1897) theory is now practiced in schools across the UK.
