What makes Peace by Piece unique is our focus on the Sensory Centre - separate rooms tailored to different sensory needs that will allow children to self regulate by choosing sensations.

As well as developing sensory processing, encouraging young children to engage with different activities can improve fine and gross motor skills and enable professionals and parents to watch and assess a child’s ability levels in an informal manner. Observation may highlight specific needs or sensitivities to certain types of input – such as light or sound and enable support to be purposefully offered.  There are so many different parts of a multisensory environment that can help children explore their senses and develop their processing skills.
