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
Why not decorate a cup or plate? They are wonderful gifts or your child can make a creation they’ll keep forever. We’re on hand to help with hand and foot prints or to help with inspiration. Or why not decorate one yourself whilst the little ones play? We’ll bake and glaze it in our kiln for free and you can pick it up ten days later. The plates and large mugs cost £9.95 each. Regular mugs cost £8.95.
Story and song time
Relax with a hot drink and cake while we run a story time and sing session in our play café. £5.25 per family (one adult) including hot drink and cake or for the Summer we are offering one of our freshly made smoothies or 2 scoops of ice cream. Afterwards, let your little ones run off steam with a free 30 minute session in our mini soft play (downstairs). This is our perfect combination of letting your child explore through song and develop their verbal vocabulary, with a fun let off some steam in our soft play. Aimed at all ages but ideal for 2 and 3 years old.
