We think our workshops are fabulous, but don't just take our word for it. Here is what others have been saying: 

"Very stimulating and interesting throughout. Fabulous ideas. Excited to get going!"
Nursery manager 

"I wanted an engaging, informative session that would inspire and reignite the passion of our staff and Abbie delivered just that! Her own passion oozed and was infectious to all in the group. Her knowledge was weaved throughout the session and delivered in a such a way that the group weren’t even aware they were learning new things. I ended the session feeling grateful for Abbie’s input, the staff left feeling uplifted and inspired and ever since our provision has been littered with high quality sensory play opportunities – everyone is a winner! I would recommend Abbie without hesitation!"

"The activities were practical and engaging with lots of opportunities to explore sensory play. The theory between sensory play and the senses gave an insight into the importance of this aspect of play within schools. The task where we were asked to plan and resource a sensory session gave staff the chance to explore and think about specific skills which could be improved through sensory play."
Early Years and Key Stage 1 Leader

"The interactive activities were amazing and definitely made the information easier to take in and remember."

"I really enjoyed everything about it, especially the interactive activities as these highlighted just how easily we can implement lots of fun, but also learning too!"
