Providing specialist tactile equipment for children with sensory issues
Petts Wood Playgroup for Children with Special Needs provides pre-school education for children with special needs from birth to five years.
The Axis Foundation donated £1,000 to purchase a sandpit and an alphabetical and numerical frieze: this interactive and tactile equipment will help children with sensory issues and those on the autistic spectrum or with a motor disorder.
“Oh wow, that is amazing news! It is an amazing sum and will make such a difference to our children and the service we can provide. Thank you so much. We – and all the children who will benefit from using the sandpit and frieze – are deeply grateful to the Axis Foundation” – Larry Simpson, Manager
