New at Barney’s – Messy Play and more
Barney’s Play in Uckfield has launched new Messy / Sensory sessions and also SEND soft play sessions for families of children with special needs, disabilities and their friends.
Messy / Sensory Play takes place on Friday mornings with sessions for babies and non-walkers from 9:45 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., and for 1 to 2 years old, who crawl and walk, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
SEND sessions take place every month with the following one on Saturday December 18, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. These are generally much quieter than regular gaming sessions and are not open to the general public.

Louise Jago, who runs Barney’s with her husband Asa, says messy / sensory play sessions are a great way for your baby or toddler to explore different materials and textures in a safe and fun environment.
She added, “Messy play can help your toddler’s fine motor development, while also giving him the confidence to experiment with different and unfamiliar textures and materials.
“Our messy play is unstructured sensory exploration, allowing your little ones the freedom to create their own messy masterpieces.”
For the little ones there are different gloops and goos for children to explore with their hands, feet and mouth – whatever is used is non-toxic.
Chaperones can explore colors, water, sand and play dough, in groups limited to six children to allow them to explore each activity at their own pace in a relatively calm and relaxed environment, while encouraging interaction with other children. new friends.
At the end of the two sessions, bowls of hot soapy water are made available to clean your little ones. All you need to do is bring a towel and a change of clothes for your child. Old clothes are recommended for sessions.
The booking includes one child, one adult and one adult tea or coffee for £ 9. The sessions take place in a private room separate from the soft play area. Access to the playgrounds and the main building is not included.
