About this Event

Quiet Play is aimed at children aged 2-5 years.

This session provides a safe and welcoming environment, offering the opportunity to slow down, minimise distractions, meet sensory needs and develop independence skills in children.

Gentle and inclusive, Quiet Play is for families who may be new to the library environment, people who may find other sessions overwhelming and little ones who are developing their social and emotional skills.

You can guide your child through Quiet Play activities, whilst they gradually seek independent play and learn relaxation skills alongside you. Practising relaxation together and providing time for regular quiet play helps children learn simple techniques for self-regulation that stay with us into adulthood.

Together we are welcoming children into Play ‘n Learn sessions who may experience sensory issues or disability, and supporting young children who thrive through a quieter approach to play.

Some children may find it difficult to play with other children when there is too much going on in their environment with conflicting noises or sights.

Quiet Play allows for gently guided independence, shared relaxation and sensory exploration activities so children can focus, relax, understand their world and develop emotional skills.

Sessions are designed for one on one interactions with parent/caregiver and their child. Due to this, we ask that alternative childcare is arranged for additional siblings. This will enable participants to gain the most from the experience.
