New outdoor sensory room fulfils children's needs at Seeros Daycare

The new outdoor sensory room at Seeros Daycare Nursery
A new outdoor sensory room has been unveiled at Seeros Central Daycare Nursery.
The outdoor shed, which had previously been destroyed by teenagers, has now been refurbished to provide sensory input for children with sensory needs or have ASD needs (autism spectrum disorder).
Last March, the Church Stile nursery was targeted by a group of teenage boys on several occasions, who damaged the outdoor soft play equipment, as well as setting AstroTurf alight, and melting a plastic roof for an outdoor shelter.
Now the room has been fully adapted to cater towards its patrons’ unique sensory needs. Children who have sensory issues may have an aversion to – or purposefully seek out – anything that triggers their senses, such as light, sound, touch, taste, or smell.
Manager Holly Boardman said: “The whole room is designed to fulfil each child's sensory needs that we currently provide a service for and we will continue to keep adapting it as we need to.
“Our children were absolutely over the moon with it. Our staff have worked hard putting together this project and continued to work hard throughout Covid.”
