Play Value increases with sensory play

New research from KOMPAN Play Institute shows that sensory play items in a playground increases play value and play duration in toddlers.

Toddlers learn and develop skills through play-based experiences. But what is the right play stimulation level to ensure development and learning and not over-stimulation?

KOMPAN Play Institute setout to examine toddlers play, and in particular, how sensory play features effect and stimulate toddlers' play. Observations were done on children from the age of 1 to 4 years old at a nursery and kindergarten in Denmark. 

The findings were, in many ways, surprising! Read them in our whitepaper through the link below.
