Why do we feature monochrome resources in our baby room?
Due to the limitations in their vision in the first year of life, young babies respond well to simple bold patterns and high contrast. This makes monochrome resources not only appealing to them, but also helps to support their visual development, attention and concentration. The high contrast of black and white patterns invite babies to engage with the resources and explore the textures offered. Combined with a range of resources of other colours, metallics, textures, shapes, sounds and smells both in their base room and outdoors, the babies enjoy a multi-sensory experience every day at Shooting Stars.
Our neutral room colour scheme acts as a back drop for different collections of items so the babies can choose which areas they wish to explore first!
This sensory exploration tray features a variety of objects and activities to engage the babies; Animals, mark making, technology, books and printed materials, sensory bottles and other sensory toys.
