Early Years – World of play

Find a sensory room

Sensory rooms are a great place to start when getting to know which sorts of toys your child responds well to. A visit together can be a calming and fun addition to your routine and they aren’t all expensive to visit.

We’ve compiled this list to help you find one close to you. If you know of any that aren’t on our list, please email online@victa.org.uk so that we can share them with other parents and carers.
