Movement and sensory (12 sense) learning in the Early Years
Developing the foundation senses of movement, touch, balance and “joy of living” in the early years
In this workshop, Jonathan will outline:
* Important stages in the physiological and psychological development of the child
* The twelve senses with emphasis on the four foundation senses of early childhood
* Why ennobling the four foundation senses via play is so important
* Why play-based learning, in the light of current chaotic sense stimulation, is the great educator
Nearly 100 years ago Rudolf Steiner divulged some of the most profound considerations regarding the education of children. His indications about the human beingʼs twelves senses and how the ennobled four foundation senses can lead to balanced adult human beings is most relevant today where childrenʼs senses can be bombarded and potentially over-simulated.According to the Gesell Institute, childrenʼs developmental milestones have not changed in 100years. In this age of mental and physical health challenges, Steinerʼ indications regarding a “health-giving” and “health-promoting” education deserve special consideration. It is notable that not one of the four foundation senses is ennobled via screen technology, and with its rampant untested consumption it is incumbent upon us as educators and parents to become aware of its potential advantages and harm.
