Kildare Village hosts ‘Sensational Kids’ pop up shop, 24 – 28 March

Kildare Village hosts ‘Sensational Kids’ pop up shop, 24 – 28 March to help children with additional educational needs, such as autism, dyspraxia and dyslexia which affects 1 in 4 in Ireland. 

Children’s Charity, Sensational Kids is delighted to announce that Kildare Village will host a ‘Sensational Kids’ pop up shop from Saturday 24 – Wednesday 28 March 2018.  The aim is to drive awareness of the fact that one in four children in Ireland has a special educational need such as autism, dyspraxia, dyslexia, Down syndrome and other developmental delays.

Sensational Kids is an award winning charity founded in 2008 by Karen Leigh, who discovered first-hand, a lack of affordable support services for children with special educational needs.  Over the past 10 years, Sensational Kids has worked with more than 4,700 children at their child development centres in Kildare and Clonakilty.

Visitors to the pop up shop at the Kildare Village shopping outlet will be able to trial and purchase a wide array of educational and sensory toys, which are great fun for all kids and particularly beneficial for children with additional needs.  Visitors will also get a taster of the fun activities that will be on offer at the Sensational Kids Enchanted Fairy & Elf Festival, which takes place on 19 – 20 May in Rathwood, Tullow, Co. Clare.  The talented team of fairies and elves from Rathwood and Sensational Kids will visit the pop up shop in Kildare Village on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 March, 2-5pm, to bring the Enchanted Elf and Fairy Festival to life for all the family!

Tickets to the hugely popular Enchanted Fairy & Elf Festival are currently available and pre-booking is essential.

The Sensational Kids pop up shop at Kildare village will be open from 9am – 7pm daily from Saturday 24 to Wednesday 28 March.

Karen Leigh, founder Sensational Kids commented:2018 marks the 10th anniversary of Sensational Kids and regrettably our services are more vital now than ever.  We’re delighted to have the opportunity to share our story at Kildare Village.  One in four children has special educational needs and it’s our goal to help as many of these children as possible.”
