Our Little Saplings Sensory Play and storytelling 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 month’s chosen theme.
In this month's sensory play activities and interactive storytelling, we will explore life-cycles and new growth here at the Arboretum, looking at trees and nature. We will also encourage our young visitors to measure their own growth and create our very own artwork: Little Saplings' Tree of Hands.
Preschool 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.
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
