Multisensory garden at Karin Dom

The Montessori team of Karin Dom Foundation accepted the challenge to further develop and create an educational space that would be filled with multiple stimuli, helping to accumulate sensory experience and supporting the process of sensory integration. Initially, the idea that brought the team together was to create a “Delicious Educational Garden” with various plants, which would be a place for learning through experience. A place where children can learn to grow ecologically clean food – fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs. A place that develops children’s imagination, helps them to be in good physical condition and health, and that becomes a “Nature Classroom” where children can easily acquire and consolidate knowledge and skills in botany, mathematics, language and speech, biology, physics and chemistry.

Subsequently, the activity of the educational garden took on other dimensions, as additional facilities for children were installed. Thus, the delicious educational garden became a multi-sensory garden, namely a place where children, playing, having fun and learning, get a real opportunity to develop all their senses. Here they will get all the incentives to do so. In creating the multisensory garden, the team was guided by the principles and practice of classical Montessori pedagogy and is based on their 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 relationship with it. According to Maria Montessori, “children must have the opportunity to interact with nature. Thus, they learn to understand and appreciate its order, harmony and beauty.”


The training includes theoretical foundations and practical demonstrations in the garden of Karin Dom. In the training, we will share good practice for sensory activities through an organized outdoor space that becomes a place where children, playing, having fun and learning, get a real opportunity to develop all their senses. We will talk about the multisensory garden of Karin Dom Foundation, where its principles and practice are based on classical Montessori pedagogy.

In the training, we will focus on the following elements:

  1. Sharing good practices for creating an organized sensory and educational space outdoors;
  2. Zones in the multi-sensory garden of Karin Dom Foundation;
  3. Educational garden:
  • What is an educational garden?
  • Motives for creating an educational garden
  • Why is the educational garden different?
  • How to create an educational garden?
  • Principles of the garden.
  1. Practical advice related to building a sensory and educational garden
