The Feeling of Me Research Project
We're delighted that seven early years settings, from across England, are joining us to explore the sensory side of physical development.
Over 70 practitioners are taking the new Feeling of Me course. Each week, representatives from the settings drop into a Zoom Lounge (hosted by JABADAO) to talk about how they are using their new learning and what impact it is having for their children.
You can follow their thoughts and ideas throughout on the JABADAO website. In the Spring of 2021 we'll publish our findings.
Why do we want to explore the sensory side of physical development?
We think that sensory development has a more important role than it is currently addressed in the early years physical development curriculum. We want to know what the benefits might be if we give it more attention.
Our research question: is children’s learning and wellbeing positively impacted if early years practitioners understand more about the sensory side of physical development?
What is the link between movement and sensory development?
