Imagine that we are standing in the middle of Times Square, in the heart of New York City. Be still and let your senses explore the environment. What do you notice? How does your body react to the stimuli? If we were standing there together, you would probably describe the dazzling and sometimes blinking lights, the myriad of bright colors, the vast crowds, the towering buildings, the ever-present sounds, and perhaps some interesting smells. All of those sensorial elements combine to create the Times Square experience. Now, think about the typical early childhood classroom. In many ways, the environment is much like Times Square: lights glare overhead, bright colors everywhere, noise is constant, space confining.   Early childhood professionals must strive to create spaces that caress, as opposed to assault young children’s senses. Spaces that are conducive to learning and prosocial behaviors are those that are high in sensory engagement rather than sensory overload. Teachers can take many steps to make the transition from sensory overload to sensory engagement.
