REGGIO EXPLORERS

ART & STEAM 

Reggio Explorers Program is designed to support your child's cognitive, fine motor, speech, and social skills through sensory exploration, arts and STEM activities.

Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place throughout the full target language immersion, art, music and sensory exploration which Kids Language Art offers. In Kids Language Art Sensory play is extremely important- simply play that encourages children to use one or more of the senses. Often called “messy play,” sensory play experiences focus on stimulating children’s senses of sight, sound, smell, touch, taste, balance, and movement. Young children rely on sensory input to learn about their environment. Sensory play helps build neural connections that support thought, learning, and creativity. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine/gross motor skills, problem solving/reasoning, and social interaction. The camp weeks are based on different themes each week.
