Helping our students find their potential

There are many benefits of sensory soft play for children, these range from improving their physical abilities to the way that they communicate with others.  At Sandgate we use Soft Play opportunities to stimulate the senses, including sense of balance (vestibular) and awareness of the child’s  own body and surroundings (proprioception).

Each child will have a different sensory threshold and a setting that may be perfectly fine for one may be either under stimulating or overstimulating for another. When in a safe, sensory space, children can feel more secure within themselves.  This can encourage movements and interactions which may otherwise prove to be a challenge. As they become more confident, these skills can then be transferred into the outside world
