Soft play and Sensory Activities

Soft play

Ilminster Avenue has a Soft play area. This specifically designed area offer the ideal opportunity for children of all abilities to practice and improve their communication skills, as well as play and interact with their peers in a safe environment. Soft play allows children to develop a sense of danger, improve balance, motor skills, movement and spatial awareness, and help build their emotional health, all in the safety and support of our team.

 

Sensory room

Ilminster Avenue has a Sensory room. The Sensory room is a fun room to play and learn full of bright lights and interactive toys. This can help children who have learning difficulties, developmental disabilities or sensory impairments learn to interact with the world around them, in a safe environment that helps builds up their confidence and abilities. A sensory room can offer:

  • Sensory Stimulation – by encouraging the user to engage and explore the environment then it can have positive effects on their ability to react and interact with the world around them
  • Enhance Learning and Play – following on from this, sensory stimulation can engage different areas of the brain, helping children absorb and retain more information and better meeting the needs of the individual
  • Improve Balance, Movement and Spatial Orientation – Sensory rooms can help develop users’ visual processing abilities as well as their fine and gross motor skills, facilitating day-to-day living
