About Play-Sense

Our Play-Sense play group is a group for parents and their pre-school children with disabilities. The group runs weekly for 2 hours in a safe, fun environment where both parents and their children will benefit from increased communication and play, being with others in a similar situation and parents will get a break from full-on caring.

The Play-Sense group has been appreciated by parents who have told us that their children enjoy our messy play, sensory art and music sessions and benefit from our sensory room which they have access to during the play group time.

Who Comes to Play-Sense?

Parents and their pre-school children who have a range of disabilities or additional needs including several with autism.

Our group has also previously been attended by those who are asylum seekers and from a range of different nationalities including African, Chinese, Korean and Polish.
