Play Therapy Pods

Types Of Play Therapy Pods

All of our Play Therapy Pods are designed to provide quality opportunities to support a variety of areas of development. The Play Therapy Pods are to be used under adult supervision to allow for greater play/learning opportunities. Whilst purposeful play will help an individual child, the loan of the Play Therapy Pod can bring the whole family enjoyment.

Our Play Therapy Pods contain visual, auditory, tactile and interactive specialist toys - which have been placed into different categories for parents to choose from.

We recognise that all children's development is unique to them, and children may need toys that are better suited to their mental and emotional development. As such we will happily accept applications for any pods that don't exceed your child's physical age. Do not hesitate to select multiple Play Therapy Pods to provide limitless joy within one application.

If you need support in identifying the type of pod that would offer the most support, please don't hesitate to contact Newlife's Care Services Team on 0800 902 0095 or liaise with your local professional to help identify ways to use the toys in line with any existing developmental plans which you may have.

We also have a useful family resource 'Powerful Play' available to access via our website.
