About Us

My name is Tracy and I am the founder of Sunshine Sensory.  Sunshine Sensory was not something I ever envisioned in my life, but I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity and want to share my journey with you.

I spent the first years of my teaching career working with a mix of mainstream and SEN children from birth to 16.  Settling in Early Years I spent 10 years specialising in EYFS and the development of children from birth to five.  I loved working as a teacher and being able to reach children through a wide range of resources and approaches. 

In 2001, at one year old, my daughter was diagnosed with severe learning difficulties, suddenly teaching became a lot harder and my life begin to change beyond my imagination.  I spent huge amounts of time researching child development and the benefits of sensory play.  Realising that it wasn't viable for me to give 100% to my teaching career any more I looked for an alternative.  Sunshine Sensory allows me to continue to support parents and carers on their child's educational journey.

Every child is unique and the classes I have created reflect that, there is a structure but if you child chooses to explore the resources in a way different than I had planned that is fine.  We have to appreciate that each child will have different tolerances to sensory resources, some children might like the light touch of feathers, some may dislike it and that is also fine.  Through the whole session I provide support, reassurance and model ways for you to interact with your child in a variety of ways.  Ultimately having fun and creating that special bond with your child.

It is amazing and I feel so privileged to be part of all these people’s lives and I want to thank everyone that has supported me in this journey so far.

Come and join us on our journey and enjoy the magic that is looking at the world through a sensory perspective.
