My name is Alison and I am the Project Coordinator for Sensory4all, based at Pavilion on the Park in Eastleigh.
I joined the sensory team as a volunteer in May 2021, and became Project Coordinator for Sensory4all in the October. I will also be co-project co-ordinator for Little Pixies playgroup also based at Pavilion on the Park as from Easter 2022. I am super excited to be involved with such an amazing project, and as a mum of a child with additional needs myself, I understand only too well the importance of finding accessible, fun, stimulating and educational resources in the community for children and adults of all ages and abilities. I am passionate about education and promoting mental health and have a strong belief that everybody has the ability and capacity to learn, be it with books in a classroom, by playing a game with a friend, getting messy with glue and glitter or even jumping in a puddle!
My working background is in childcare, having worked in day nurseries, creche facilities and preschools for quite some time! I am qualified to work with children and this year will be going back to school to learn new techniques and activities to help children and young people with SEN.
I have lots of exciting ideas for new sensory projects, so watch this space!
I look forward to getting to know you all!
