Treasure Baskets have been used for many years by childcare professionals to support babies/children’s all round learning and development. Treasure Baskets support holistic learning, development and curiosity through touch, taste, smell, sound and visual stimulation.
It’s a brilliant idea that works to stimulate and inspire exploration and discovery through multi-sensory opportunities and heuristic play. This enables children to learn, develop and build confidence through the decisions they make. When baby shows an interest in something in particular, for example sound, then it’s simple to add more items that support this interest.
A length of metal chain sounds great rattled on a metal bowl. A wooden spoon to bang on a metal pan or a treasure basket.
This is the brilliant thing about Treasure Baskets, they support your baby/child to be in control of their own learning and make decisions about their play. The Montessori teaching method is based on learning through multi-sensory experience, 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. The UK Governments Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum has acknowledged the Montessori’s approach. In their view this is at the centre of how children learn.
Sensory Treasures provide a selection of baskets and bags containing a variety of contents. The contents can be tailored to baby’s interest and age.
Sensory Treasures also recognises the benefits of the Montessori concept for older children, young people and adults.
