Despite the growing tendency to create playful corners on the part of the MIES and the MINEDUC, in the CDI there continues to be an urgent need for change in the actions of the educators, with respect to how the subject of sensory activities is being handled in the stimulation of children in their first years of life and thus implement meaningful learning, the problem focuses on the lack of sensory playful corners in perceptual stimulation The study was applied to 20 educators of 5 care units of the modality Child Development Center (CDI) of several rural sectors of the Portoviejo canton, having as objective to determine the use of sensory playful corners in the stimulation of children from 1 to 3 years. The results of this work showed that there are no sensory playful corners and that educators lack knowledge about the importance of creating these spaces and making them available to children for their learning, reaching the conclusion that there is a need to create an innovative guide with content sessions, skills, play materials for the corners of visual, auditory, gustatory, olfactory and tactile perception.
