Child led play
Our play café provides a safe and friendly environment for child led play with opportunities for children to develop their natural curiosity to explore, investigate, interpret, predict, solve problems and make decisions. We have ride-ons, dress up, the discovery table, games, toys and dens - everything that creative little minds can turn into an adventure.
What is child led play?
Child led play is key to early stage learning and development. It happens naturally when children are given the time and space to play and think for themselves, to come up with their own ideas and apply those ideas in practice.
When children experience learning in this way, it helps them to develop a positive attitude towards learning and to be effective learners.
Paint a plate or mug anytime
Stuck on the perfect gift for a loved one? Want to get your child’s hand or foot prints printed on a ceramic mug or plate to treasure forever?

Your artwork will be fired after your visit and available to collect 10 days later and can be used and even put in the dishwasher.
