Welcome to Parkland Players Childcare Centre, where we embrace the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, fostering a love for learning through sensory exploration. Our dynamic environment encourages children to engage with the world around them through sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. Join us on a journey where every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth through sensory experiences.


Our classrooms at Parkland Players are designed to captivate children’s imagination and curiosity. Through carefully curated materials and visually stimulating displays, children are invited to explore the world of colors, shapes, and patterns. From observing the changing seasons through nature-inspired art projects to exploring light and shadow with hands-on materials, children develop their sense of sight as they interact with their environment.


The sound of laughter and lively conversation fills the air at Parkland Players as children engage in collaborative play and learning experiences. Our educators facilitate meaningful conversations and storytelling sessions, encouraging children to express themselves and listen actively. Musical instruments and outdoor exploration provide additional opportunities for children to engage their sense of hearing, fostering a deeper appreciation for the rich tapestry of sounds that surround them.


Hands-on exploration is at the heart of learning at Parkland Players. Our classrooms are filled with a variety of tactile materials and sensory experiences, inviting children to engage their sense of touch as they manipulate, create, and discover. From exploring different textures in sensory bins to molding clay and playdough, children develop fine motor skills and tactile awareness while engaging in open-ended exploration.


At Parkland Players, children have the opportunity to explore their sense of taste through homemade snack and mealtimes. Through exploration of different foods and flavors, children develop a deeper appreciation for the sensory aspects of eating and the cultural significance of food.


The sense of smell is celebrated at Parkland Players through sensory experiences that engage children’s olfactory senses. Our outdoor flowerbeds provides a natural setting where children can explore the fragrant scents of flowers, herbs, and plants. Scented materials, such as sensory jars filled with spices or aromatic playdough, invite children to explore and discover the rich world of smells around them.

At Parkland Players Childcare Centre, we believe in the power of sensory exploration to ignite children’s curiosity, creativity, and love for learning. Through engaging experiences that stimulate their senses of sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell, children embark on a journey of discovery and growth in a supportive and nurturing environment. Join us as we celebrate the magic of sensory exploration and empower children to explore, discover, and thrive in their learning journey.
