Reason for cancellation Course withdrawn 
Event/course Code EY/21/268
Event/course type Early Years Curriculum
Event Description This training course is a reminder of the importance of messy play and sensory exploration within our development. For children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties, messy play and sensory exploration can offer positive experience free from shame and guilt, for those children who may not have experienced it before. This immersion of such play supports brain growth, optimal learning and emotional regulation. Children are able to explore best when they are safe and secure and free from emotional tension. This type of play supports that, in turn, preventing the child’s reptilian brain from becoming triggered. As always when supporting children with SEMH, this course discusses the importance of the adults role within messy play and sensory exploration, along with examples of real practice within our county

Recommended attendees: SENCo and all staff working with children

Standard Cost £32 plus VAT (£38.40 incl VAT)
