About Sapere

The Sapere method was developed by the French chemist and ethnologist Jacques Puisais. The Latin word "sapere" means to taste, feel and be brave. Sapere is based on sensory practice and it emphasises learning through experiences and study.
In Sapere method children learn new things about food using the senses of smell, taste, touch, vision and hearing. Sapere method emphasises supporting and listening to the child's own expression.
