Our Sensory Room is a place where children can explore and develop their senses and skills. The multi-sensory room has many different features; soft play areas, multi-textured floors and objects, and interactive equipment such as rotating mirror balls and bubble lighting which make constant changes to the sensory room environment.
The sensory room fosters an atmosphere of relaxation, and can give the child a chance to explore their senses and become interested in the environment around them. A multi-sensory room can engage children to learn through play, from following bright lights and listening to the bubbles, to scrunching silver foil.
This calming environment is a place for parents/carers to bond with their children, providing a restful and peaceful experience in today’s busy and sometimes stressful lifestyles.
