This study examined the mediating role of sensory profiles in the relationships between childhood nature exposure, and adulthood nature relatedness and creativity.

Results suggest that children with lower levels of nature exposure grow up to exhibit a high tendency to miss subtle sensory stimuli. In turn, this sensory processing pattern  is associated with lower levels of affinity to nature and creativity. This preliminary study offers implications for designing child-friendly urban space which supports sensory explorations and allows children to acquire the ability to recognise various sensory inputs.
