This week has seen the installation of our relaxation and multi-sensory room and we are delighted that we are able to provide such a fantastic resource for our children. We would also like to thank the Local Authority for their financial contributions towards this.
Our multi-sensory room offers a safe and comfortable environment where children can explore and develop their senses and skills, our room offers many different features ranging from interactive equipment which make dramatic changes to the sensory environment using sound and lighting. Our sensory room will engage children to learn through play, from following bright light, shapes and patterns with their eyes to making sounds with musical instruments, learning about touch by examining a variety of textures. The overactive will feel calm, the inactive stimulated. Our multi-sensory room offers a constantly changing environment to relax, learn new skills, make and listen to music, play and have FUN. .
In addition to the above it also offers a 'safe and quiet' sanctuary for children from the outside world. A space where any child experiencing difficulties, stress or anxiety can access either simply for some time out or as a space to talk to staff.
