Play Pandas is a child-led sensory play class for children aged 6 months to 5 years of age, designed by a qualified and experienced early years educator. The sensory play classes are stay and play sessions that run for 1 hour.

There are approximately 8 different play stations which will follow a new theme each week. The play stations include water play, small world play, creative play, play dough, dry rice/lentils play, messy play and a quiet area with sensory toys and books to explore.

The class is child-led, meaning that there is no teacher leading the play, the stations are set up as an invitation to explore. The children choose their own way to use the materials which supports their creativity, imagination and self esteem. As the classes are designed for mixed age groups it creates a lovely social environment for the children.

Babies from 6 months are invited to attend but I would always advise stage over age as every child is different. Once your baby can sit up unsupported and is a little more mobile, they will get the most out of the class. I also advise that your baby has started their weaning journey as there will be 'taste safe' play bases for babies to explore - for example; sand made from blended cereals, cloud dough made from baked flour and oil, cooked spaghetti, slices of oranges in water and desiccated coconut.

Exploring different textures with their hands and feet supports a tactile play experience. As babies naturally explore the world around them by placing things into their mouth, I ensure everything is non toxic and safe for them to do so.

We end the class with some finger/action songs and parachute play.
