THE Lake Joondalup 3+ Program will hold a community event on Saturday to showcase its sensory room and nature garden.

Co-director Debra Gibson said the non-profit childcare service introduced the sensory room to give children with additional needs a calm space to escape to.

“The room has proven to be incredibly successful as a tool for separation anxiety and also provides a great environment for all children to explore their fine motor development,” she said.

“Whether the child is recognising the colour changing bubbles, admiring the beautiful fish or drawing a picture on the sequin walk there is something to ignite their senses and keep them stimulated for hours.”

People from the wider community can take their children to the centre’s Toddler Nature and Sensory Day at 10 Neville Drive, Wanneroo from 9.30am to 11.30am on March 24.

It will cost $10 per child. Email or visit the program’s Facebook page for more information.
