Sensory Stay and Play


Sensory Stay and Play is for pre-school children aged 2-5 with additional sensory or communication needs providing high quality, well planned and stimulating activities, to support learning and development.


Stay and play supports positive interactions between adults and children which enhances children's individual learning and development in their transition to nursery.

These sessions could be for you if you don't feel able to attend play groups or play sessions because of your child's additional needs. 

Come along with your child, meet other parents who are going through similar experiences and pick up tips on how to support your child's learning and development.

Most of all come along and have fun together.

The sessions are held at:
