Covid-19 Virus Safety Measures
The interests of our customers, our team and the communities that we support and work with continue to be at the centre of everything we do, and this is particularly important during these challenging times. With this in mind, we wanted to reassure you that we have put in place a number of robust measures designed to make health and safety a top priority, whilst still ensuring that we can best meet children and families sensory, physical and emotional needs. We take our responsibility for safety extremely seriously so are following Government guidelines on Covid-19 to enable schools, pastoral teams, nurseries, social services and families to order essential sensory equipment, toys and play resources during lockdown. Safety has always been at the heart of everything that we do, so you’ll be pleased to hear that after a precautionary deep clean, we’re open for business with gloves and masks donned ready to meet your sensory equipment, learning and play needs.
Sensory Play Resources & Equipment, Play Therapy and Training
Sensory engagement is essential to children's development, wellbeing and learning. For over 10 years we've made it our business specialising in providing a stimulating range of sensory resources and equipment for babies, toddlers and primary age children as well as adults with dementia and special educational needs and training for practitioners. Our handmade, ethical and award-winning heuristic play resources, of which Stacking Hoops and Mini Stacking Hoops are stand out products, provide early sensory stimulation and a sensory education, not to mention being unique and ethical, as they are made in the UK by adults with physical and learning disabilities.
Our resources are also suitable for supporting children and adults' wellbeing. We provide equipment for addressing sensory processing and sensory attachment challenges, as well as emotional and behavioural difficulties. Particularly effective is our range of tried and tested carefully selected resources for providing proprioceptive feedback, calming relief or acting as self-regulation and fidget tools.
