Come along to the first of a series of new sensory play sessions for children with additional support needs.

Families with children with additional support needs and disabilities are invited to join our new programme of sensory play sessions. 

These sessions are designed for children aged 5–10, but please email if your child is outside this age bracket but you think they might enjoy coming along.

Sensory Sunday sessions will be relaxed, fun and hands-on and will respond to the needs of the families participating. You are welcome to come and go at any point during the session. 

The first Sensory Sunday is now sold out.

Part of Maths Week Scotland, we will be exploring the theme of Maths in Motion through crafts and hands-on activities.

Refreshments will be provided.
