Who can use the service?
One o'clock Children's Centres are an open access service, it's available to everyone and there is no cost for using it.
We have Three multi-sensory rooms located in:
The multi-sensory room creates a stimulating environment for everyone to enjoy. It is padded, with soft furnishings such as a heated waterbed and ball pit. Special lighting creates a magical colourful effect as well as projecting patterns, pictures and images around the room.
We have mirrors to reflect the light and make the room feel spacious. We play a range of music to make the environment more relaxing and calming. Many of the smaller toys are textured and appeal to the senses, adding to the overall wonder of this facility.
