Accrington Road Children’s Centre

We transformed this bland outdoor space into a fantastic sensory area that children of all ages and abilities can enjoy.

There are opportunities for children to play or sit with friends whilst enjoying the growing plants that have been incorporated into the seating.

Children can work on their strength, co-ordination, balance and agility by using the mini trim trail, log steps, tunnel and climbing frame. They can also take part in role play games, developing their imaginations using the staged area, story telling corner and willow tunnels.

"The use of different materials provides an extra element to the sensory area, it provides children with different textures, colours and movement of the surface underfoot!"
Gary Birtwell, Director
