Sensory and Social Play
**Wednesdays and Fridays starting 9/7/2022 at 11:15 AM followed by open play**
Children will have the opportunity to take part in social free play while engaging in sensory exploration. Guided by Amber Chaves, OTR/L and Natalia Martinez MS, CCC-SLP, these early learners will be gently led to explore new textures, practice developing fine-motor skills, and use their emerging language to express their feelings, practice turn-taking, and share with their caregivers and friends. This class is for children 15 months to 4 years old.
