Children at a primary school in Boreham in Essex are delighted with the sensory toys and accessories provided by our Fledglings shop which has helped transform a dull room into a calming and relaxing sensory space for children with additional needs to explore.

Before and after!

“I like it when the bubble tubes are on”

Children at the school have called their new facility the ‘Dragon’s nest’ in honour of the school mascot Susan the Dragon. The school told us the children particularly love the liquid floor tiles, bubble tubes and having fun wearing the bodysocks.

The room the school has created with our Fledglings team helps children feel calm and focused – which helps them be better prepared for learning and interacting with their peers.  And parents have told the school that their child’s access to the new sensory room and equipment has improved family life at home too.

The resources really have made such an impact on our children and we appreciate all of the support that Fledglings has given us. It really has enriched their experience, giving a safe and calm space where the children can relax and regulate their emotions. The parents have also been so positive, sharing how their home life has improved.
