Play to Z have devised the award-winning Playscope range of cross–curricular play-based resources for the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) ,Key Stage 1 (KS1), Key Stage 2 (KS2) and children with Special Educational Needs (SEN).
Playscope resources are receiving international acclaim for their quality, play value, environmental and ethical credentials. Over half of the items in each of our organic* British Treasure Baskets are made at Socially Responsible Centres by adults with learning difficulties or physical disabilities, or by local crafts people using reclaimed resources. This makes every Playscope Treasure Basket unique and as the items are carefully selected to ensure maximim sensory interest, play value, curricular links and 'wow' appeal, ensures that a Playscope Treasure Basket is a must-have resource for Children's Centres, portage teams, Play and Occupational Therapists and Primary Schools. Early years advisers, Children's Centre Managers, Toy Libraries and SENCO's are all regular customers.
As well as offering sensory-rich resources for babies, young children (and even adults), Play to Z provides a range of award winning Training. Winner of Nursery World Trainer of the Year, 2009 we design and deliver training, workshops, mentoring and presentations to help give parents and practitioners the knowledge, skills and confidence to maximise the benefits of sensory play. Extensive observations and reaserch lie at the root of all of our training. Play To Z have worked closely with several Local Education Authorities developing packages of training and resources to meet their specific needs and budgets. We are happy to advise on the best resources and training packages to suit your settings and practitioners.
