A young child meets the world around him through the constant use of all of his senses. In order to continue his creative task of development, a child needs to express and classify the impressions he has already received. Through sight, touch, sound, taste, and smell, the Sensorial Montessori materials enable each child to clarify, classify, and comprehend his world. The Montessori program offers a multi‐sensory approach to learning, encouraging a child to use the optimum combination of senses. The KEP classroom environment allows for a variety of activities such as individual/group, floor/table, noisy/quiet, active/sedentary.
The Sensorial materials enable a child to clarify and internalize such concepts as size, shape, color, sound, similarities, and differences. Such skills provide a basis for concurrent and future activities in Math, Music, and Language.
