For families who find it hard to go to ordinary groups and places.
Our fabulous cafe at the centre will be dedicated to this group. We will provide a welcoming space for families to bring children of any age who find it difficult to be in ordinary groups and places because of their additional needs.
Families can get to know each other, share support and experiences. All members of the family are welcome. Our Soft Play room will be available and our Mobile Sensory Space for children to try. Our new dedicated Apprentice Childcare worker will be on hand to help our younger members. As we get to know each other, new experiences will be developed.
Parents/carers will need to supervise their children.
If you are interested in finding out more or coming along to our evening group please contact Carrick Sensory on: 01655 883222 or email:

For children and families who experience an alternative way to play, learning and development.
The Carrick Centre has been running for five years and in that time we have become aware that some children and their families find it hard to come in to the centre and take part in activities. This may be through additional learning needs, disabilities, sensory issues or other needs they have.
At Carrick Sensory we want to address this by offering a range of sensory resources and experiences to families and schools in North Carrick and beyond. We hope that Carrick Sensory can also be a springboard for children and young people with additional needs and their families to use the Carrick Centre and other community resources more widely.
We are seeking volunteers who are also passionate about inclusion to help us with this project!
We are next to Maybole railway station with buses stopping at our door. We have two disabled parking bays at the front door and plenty of parking to the rear. We are fully accessible with side entrances for those who may find coming in through the main entrance too much.
What do other people say?
“Very interesting seeing children respond to different ideas that can easily be taken back to school.”
“Seeing how the children interact with each others is fascinating.”
“I’ve never seen the child so calm and relaxed in a new environment.”
