Just Play disabled soft play sessions start at Little Kingfishers, Sudbury

Little Kingfishers launches JUST PLAY; new exclusive soft play sessions funded by Activities Unlimited to allow children with a disability or learning difficulty and their siblings to enjoy soft play! Little Kingfishers soft play centre is a fun, safe and entertaining environment for children up to 10 years. Learning through play will enhance internal learning, communication skills, build confidence & improve balance & stability and can be used as a treat for good behaviour or break from playing at home.

Whilst exploring the four tier frame, children can have fun climbing the ladders or nets, riding the wavy or spiral slides, crawling the tunnel and tubes, swinging on the rope swing or jumping in the ball pit. For babies there’s a separate under 18 month ball pool and sensory soft play pit featuring large soft play toys.

The Centre is designed to be a child’s haven so parents do not have to worry about how much noise or energy their child is giving off, it’s part of the fun. The session is designed to provide a time for parents in similar situations to socialize and support one another whilst the kids are having fun on the play equipment.

We hope these sessions enable children to build confidence, socialize, play and most importantly have fun! Although the sessions are parent supervised, a play activator can be found within the frame monitoring safe play and also engages with the children to be creative and try their hands at in the art & crafts area.

Claire Turnbull, Project Manager said ‘This session was introduced as we found a real demand for families who wanted their children to have the same fun experience as others but in an environment where parents do not have to be on tender hooks wondering how their child will react or others judging their child without know their disability which can happen when they attend a public session. A time both parent & child can relax and have fun. This also creates a time for parents to socialize and share experiences and help support one another. We are thrilled with the funding aid from Activities Unlimited to be able to offer this service to the children of Sudbury & the surroundings and cannot wait for our next session to run ’

The sessions run on the 1st Thursday of every month between 4.30 – 6.30pm and are just £2.50 a session with your first session being FREE if you are registered with Activities Unlimited or sign up on the day http://www.activities-unlimited.co.uk.
