Our Little Saplings Sensory Play* and story telling is designed to help our youngest visitors enjoy the Arboretum and heighten their development and enjoyment of learning. Sounds, colours, textures, auditory sensory activities and other hands-on elements will add to the week’s chosen story.
In June our little Saplings will be looking at construction and creativity through different sensory building materials, craft activities and social skills exercises. We will also be taking a hands-on approach to the story of Humpty Dumpty and his infamous wall!
Pre-school children and accompanying adults will be given complete free rein of our expanding and evolving array of sensory toys (including dark den, lights and musical instruments) with the objective of encouraging creativity and multi-sensory experiences. All this takes place in our beautiful surroundings and with full access to our excellent restaurant and on-site facilities.
Each session will run on the first Friday of the month.
For babies, toddlers and preschool children.
*All children must be supervised by an accompanying parent/carer/guardian at all times.Read more
