Exploring the Senses for Littles

2-3 Hour Experience at Your Home

This experience helps young children ask questions and improve fine and gross motor skills through a series of activities that incorporate multiple senses and modalities. Teacher Caroline kicks things off with an exploration of the senses. How many are there, and why do humans even have senses?

Kids will then activate all of their senses, and primarily explore touch through building, creating, and feeling different materials. They'll dig up buried treasures and feel varying textures, finger paint, create musical instruments that make unique sounds, and explore the sights and sounds of nature. Through several books read aloud, and hands-on activities, children will gain new ways to search and discover through this probing, sensory experience.

About Caroline

Caroline is currently entering her third year of teaching and living in Colorado. Before coming to the Front Range, she first worked with children as a camp counselor, and developed a passion for hands-on and play-based teaching. After learning about the Reggio Emilia education philosophy in college, her passion became focused on teaching with multiple modalities to support all kids and learners.

For the past two years she taught 4th and 5th grades, and is now returning to her favorite age group and will be teaching Kindergarteners in Littleton. Through Grasshopper, her planning, positive energy, and passion for learning and teaching provides kids with experiences that both challenge and inspire their imaginations and make learning fun.

What Parents Are Saying

We LOVED everything about Grasshopper! The customer service experience was exceptional! I felt like so much intentionality was taken to ensure that the activity would be both age appropriate and fun for my kids. Our experience leader was so easy going and chatted with the kids during the experience, and really took the time to engage and get to know them. We are definitely going to be using Grasshopper again! Thank you!

Grasshopper offered my daughter an opportunity to learn in a vibrant, fun setting that was continuously customized for her attention span and interests. Her Grasshopper teacher was fun, engaging and supremely personable. She took the time to get to know my daughter before diving into anything. I felt more than comfortable leaving my daughter in such capable hands…and love that she truly learned some new things from the experience. We will be using Grasshopper regularly to broaden her horizons and expose her to new concepts in a safe and compelling way. The icing on the cake is that the experience took place in our home, at a time that was convenient for us!

Our Grasshopper experience was amazing! I have four very curious kids at different ages with different interests, and the experience had all four of them engaged the whole time. Also, as an educator, I was very impressed with how the teacher led the program. She obviously knew what she was doing, and the minute she left, my kids were asking for another experience.
