Mrs Foley will start running her Little Sunshines Sensory Play Tuesday sessions in Quinns Rocks today.

She will also run Wednesday and Thursday sessions in Heathridge, and from November will add Friday sessions in Banksia Grove to her schedule.

Mrs Foley said the weekly sessions would allow children aged six months to four years to use sensory stations and try a variety of activities.

‘Children ” and adults ” learn best and retain the most information when they engage their senses,’ she said.

Mrs Foley said she would donate $1 per enrolment in each class to a children’s charity or event, and for October had opted to give funds to Telethon.

Next month, the donation will go to ‘Charlie Ryan’s Cocktails for a Cure’ to help the Children Cancer Institute of Australia find a cure for neuroblastoma.

Mrs Foley said Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts and Deputy Mayor Dot Newton attended her opening on October 4, as well as friends, family and community members.
