Toddler Sense offers children aged 13 months to 5 years the opportunity to explore a new play space each week; every week is themed differently – we might be flying on a rocket one week, digging for fossils the next, then discovering the jungle or being superheroes! Every class has been carefully planned to support children’s learning and development in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage; but they don’t know that, they’re too busy having fun!! Structured activities go hand in hand with the opportunity to play and discover. Each class starts with exploratory play, a great way of settling children in and allowing them to burn off some energy on the soft play, bouncy castles, balancing beams, pop up tents and tunnels. We have a huge range of equipment and resources; the children can’t wait to see what is set out each week! A 20-25 minute activity session follows, rich in sensory exploration, much loved songs, dance and creativity!
