It was Dr Maria Montessori, of the famous Montessori Schools fame, who was one of the first educators who noticed the connection between sensory stimulation and brain development. The world-famous Italian physician and educator, pioneered the notion that our intellect and knowledge of the world have their beginnings in the senses; being sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste.

The sensory theory says that through our senses, we collect necessary information and stimulate our development and creativity. In her book, The Absorbent Mind, Dr Montessori says:

"The senses, being explorers of the world, open the way to knowledge. Our apparatus for educating the senses offers the child a key to guide his explorations of the world; they cast a light upon it which makes visible to him more things in greater detail than he could see in the dark, or uneducated state.

As we grow into adulthood, our sensory perception changes. Children, on the other hand, are said to have special sensitivity that allows them to absorb information through their senses, categorize it, and create mental order and orientation of the things in their environment.

Other educators who recognised the connection between human intellect and senses include Edouard Seguin, a French physician and education, who developed a series of exercises for special needs children to train their senses and teach them practical life skills.

Robert Baden Powell, the founder of the Scouting movement, said “children needed to experience life through their senses in order to learn”. This was the basis of his theory of ‘learning through doing’

Interactive childrens carpets and rugs for sale in South Africa

The interactive carpets and rugs for sale encourages youngsters to learn through natural play, rather than by instruction. It’s a vitally important phase in their life before traditional education turns “learning into a labour” (in the words of Dr Montessori).

Dr Montessori also famously said,

“Our work is not to teach, but to help the absorbent mind in its work of development.”

Many great educators have proven through careful study that the first two years of a child’s life are the most important in terms of human intellectual development.

One of the main reasons a child’s formative years are so important, is due to how fast the brain grows, starting before birth and continuing into early childhood. The brain continues to develop and change through the teenage years and into adulthood, but the first 8 years are when the foundations for future learning health and life successes are laid.

In essence, children are born ready to learn. How the brain grows is determined by their environment; what they absorb through their senses and how they assimilate it into knowledge. Children grow and learn in a safe environment; as long as they’re provided with ample opportunity to play and explore.

As parents, we can facilitate the absorption of powerful knowledge by allowing our children to play independently where they develop the aptitude to teach themselves. Individual activity like playing alone on something like an interactive road traffic carpet is an excellent way to stimulate mental and creative development.

As you can gather, the interactive childrens rugs South Africa range from Rugs Original is sourced from around the world, for their Kids Original ranges, are more than fun pieces in a kid’s room. They are a start to a wonderful world of learning for your child.
