K2 Pre-school Academy’s sensory room can be found within our Pre-School and Crèche setting located within Everyone Active’s K2 Leisure Centre.
The sensory room is designed to stimulate children’s (and adults!) senses through a variety of media including light, colour, sound and touch. Sensory rooms have been shown to enhance the development of hearing, sight, smell and touch, increase hand-eye coordination and encourage relaxation.
The sensory room is open for the use of our children as well as for the wider community. The room is designed to meet the needs of everyone regardless of age, ability or even mood. Each piece of equipment provides its own benefits to its users. It is proven to support the needs of children and adults with autism, dementia or other sensory impairment disorders, as well as offering a calming environment for those who suffer from stress and anxiety or simply just need a place to relax.
The sensory room is available to book by any user; a member of the staff team here at the pre-school will introduce you to the equipment and the various uses as well as be on hand if you require any further assistance during your time.
30 minute sessions are available to book with a maximum of 6 persons in the room at any one time. Sessions are charged per adult with up to 2 children (see over for pricing details)
