Once Upon a Time…

We are almost ready to launch our sensory story-times. The first session will take place on Saturday 6th July, at 11:00am.

The sessions are specifically designed for children with additional sensory needs. The room will be transformed into a wonderful sensory-friendly space, so that you and your child will feel relaxed and happy. We are not going to designate an age for the sessions, as you know your child better than anyone.

Here’s the story focus for the first three months:

Each session will start with a story, followed by songs and a chance to play with the beautiful sensory toys we have bought.

Spaces are limited, so if you would like to attend, we do ask that you complete this SensoryStoryRegistrationForm as soon as possible.

Story sacks, with idea cards, will be available to borrow, for a £25 refundable deposit. Currently, we have:

  • Room on the Broom
  • We’re Going a Bear Hunt
  • Dear Zoo
  • Handa’s Surprise
  • Old MacDonald
  • The Three Little Pigs
  • Little Red Riding Hood
  • Giraffes Can’t Dance
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar

If you have any questions at all, please do get in touch.
