 Our remit was as follows; To improve the sensory rooms without changing their much loved core themes and values, after many team consultations we feel we achieved the perfect balance.

We are confident that these new designs will leave them inspired, excited and will have the maximum benefit for the children who use them. I am delighted to say that the management and staff at the centre were impressed with our designs and are now looking to move forward with us.

This is going to involve several more trips to Pensacola and we will of course keep the blog updated.

Congratulations Karen and thank you for all your hard work over the years.
