Sensory Playgroup

30 minutes: 12 months - 5 years

Wednesday  10:30

Thursday 10:30

Sensory playgroup is a fun & engaging session suited to children from 12 months to 5 years of age. This is a play-based playgroup, meaning that the experiences are generally open-ended & free to personal interpretation. Children are invited to...play!

Children learn through their senses and this group provides many opportunities to engage with a variety of mediums allowing children to not only develop cognitively, but to develop skills in emotional regulation & self calming techniques.

The sessions offer a broad range of experiences, which, although changing on a weekly basis, carry a reoccurring structure to promote routine & predictability. Through predictability & routine, children become more comfortable & confident to explore their environment & engage wholly with the activities.

Experiences generally include:

- a messy, hands-on activity

- a creative, art-based experience

- a fine motor challenge

- literacy (books & story boards)

- role play (dress ups, dolls, animals, etc)

Through our playgroups, we see children develop socially, emotionally, physically & cognitively, as well as have a great time. We also see the development of community ties & friendships between the parents & carers. To support this, we strongly encourage term bookings.
