Have you ever wondered how senses inform our language? When we understand or realise something, we see it. When we get emotional, we are touched, and then we feel. Our whole being depends on sensory inputs and helps us to process the way we learn and play.
Children use all their senses when playing, which includes seeing, touching, hearing, smelling and tasting. However, child researchers such as the KOMPAN Play Institute documents sensory play includes two additional senses or systems. The science of sensory integration in child development counts in the kinaesthetic and the vestibular systems, which are crucial for moving our bodies confidently in our surroundings.
The kinesthetic system registers where one’s body parts are and how much force they need to use to move precisely, for instance, when climbing. The vestibular system tells us how to keep equilibrium and regain a sense of direction when stumbling, spinning or hanging upside down. The vestibular and kinesthetic systems are trained intensely within playgrounds, particularly when climbing, hanging, sliding, swinging or rotating.
Play is one of the most captivating aspects of a child's, as it represents an open door to self-expression and development. KOMPAN encourages children to step through this door to enjoy the physical, social-emotional and learning benefits of playgrounds. Playgrounds that include high visual and tactile experiences support children's well-being and cognition and user functional is crucial for the overall success of the playscape.
