sensory storiesSensory Stories is back at our Children and Family Centre, helping to bring stories to life through sensory play and story time.

This term, we’ll be reading ‘The Gruffalo’, which tells the story of a mouse taking a walk through the forest and the animals he encounters on his journey.  Expect an interactive experience with lots of sensory props to make for an engaging story!

The session is for children aged 1-5 with additional needs, and costs £3. For more information or to book, contact Sam or Julia on 0161 482 7933 /


The Children and Family Centre provides inclusive play opportunities in a safe and welcoming environment for children with learning disabilities and additional needs. Through its wide range of groups, play sessions and SEN training courses, children can learn and play while parents can access a wide range of information and support.

We tailor both the support and the groups to the children’s individual needs and ensure that numbers of those attending the groups are kept low to ensure each child gets the attention they deserve. The groups are all family based, with parents and carers joining their children for sessions.
