Multisensory garden at Karin Dom
The Montessori team of Karin Dom Foundation accepted the challenge to further develop and create an educational space that is filled with many incentives that help gain sensory experience and support the process of sensory integration. Initially, the idea that united the team was to create a “Delicious Educational Garden” with different plants, which would be a place for learning through experience. A place where children can learn to grow organic food – fruits, vegetables, spices, and herbs. A place to develop children’s imagination, to help them be in good physical condition and health, and which later becomes a “Natural Classroom” where children can easily learn and consolidate knowledge and skills in botany, mathematics, language and speech, biology, physics, and chemistry. Subsequently, the activity in the educational garden acquired other dimensions, as additional facilities for children were installed. Thus, the delicious educational garden has become a multisensory garden, namely, a place where children while playing, having fun, and learning, get a real opportunity to develop all their senses. Here they will receive all the incentives they need. In creating the multisensory garden, the team is guided by the principles and practice of classical Montessori pedagogy and draws on its experience in this field. In the Montessori system of education and upbringing, one of the main emphases is the communication of children with nature and their connection with it. According to Maria Montessori, “the child must have the opportunity to communicate with nature. In this way, he will learn to understand and appreciate its order, harmony, and beauty.”
The first part of the training on 5 March will provide the theoretical foundations, and the second part on 7 April live in the garden of Karin Dom will be practical. In the training, we will share good practice about sensory activities through an organized outdoor space, which becomes a place where children while playing, having fun, and learning, get a real opportunity to develop all their senses. We will talk about the multisensory garden of the Karin Dom Foundation, which principles and practice are based on classical Montessori pedagogy.
