The Playroom

The Playroom

We have a large and light playroom with a wide range of play and specialist equipment.All activities are planned to allow for every child`s specific requirements to ensure that all children have access to as many varied experiences as possible.

The Sensory Room

Sensory Room

The Sensory Room has a large bubble machine, interactive buttons and relaxing music and fragrances. The children love to escape the hustle and bustle of the playroom and relax in a calm environment. There is a wonderful beanbag which enables the children to feel music through the fabric even though they may not be able to hear it.

The Sensory Garden

The Sensory Garden has a sun canopy which produces dappled shade. There are also wind chimes that make gentle sounds in the breeze. The ground is covered with artificial grass which ensures we can use the garden in all weathers. There are raised beds containing herbs. The children are invited to touch the plants to release the fragrances. The children can also grow sunflowers, runner beans and nasturtiums. There are also plants such as buddleia and lavender to attract wildlife as well as a bird table with feeders.
