It’s great for sen children to have fun in a safe enclosed space and our group had a lovely session, plenty of choice for able bodied children, a zip wire would be a nice addition. My only criticism would be there isn’t enough outside for wheelchair users to access. Also the bins were overflowing and under the one structure there were lots of stingers and SEN children don’t know not to go into these.   Staff were great and the kids had a lovely time.   We love it at Sycamore! It is amazing for the children from our school who have SEND. We have the place booked to ourselves and the children feel safe and relaxed knowing that they have the freedom to explore, but with staff nearby.   A lovely experience for my first time at Sycamore. The children loved the afternoon. We will be visiting again soon!  The children are free to explore the safe grounds, without any worry regarding strangers on the site. They are free to choose a wide variety of activities, whatever the weather, which appeal to all children. The staff are helpful, polite and in some cases, very funny!!! Super day had by all, despite the morning rain. We'll be back!!!
