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.
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.
In November our Little Saplings will be learning more about the Police, Fire Service, NHS rescue services and the British Armed Forces. through creative play, craft and sensory story telling and role play.
Our Little Saplings Sensory Play sessions are suitable for babies, toddlers and preschool children.
*All children must be supervised by an accompanying parent/carer/guardian at all times.Read more
