Little Explorers – Pre-School Children with Vision Impairment

Little Explorers is a play session run by Essex County Council’s Vision Impairment team. The group meets in Colchester during school term time.

Little Explorers offers an opportunity for pre-school children to take part in theme-based activities. These activities help to support development and to introduce both early tactile and print-based skills.  They include:

  • free play
  • craft making
  • story time
  • singing
  • sensory play

The group also helps parents to meet other families who have children with vision impairments in the local area.
