Exploration and Play
Throughout your children's play session nowhere is off bounds to explore and play. We love meeting your little explorers and to encourage their growing independence with imaginary play - there is something to be found for children of all different ages! During their play session children are free to explore each play area as they like and to invite their parents to join them if they wish.
To ensure the play areas stay safe during play, our staff will discretely tidy up abandoned toys and return toys to each role play area so they can continue to be played with and enjoyed.
Any children using our play areas can have their accompanying adult purchase a once upon a time refillable closed top bottle for Just £4 and are then the child is entitled to bottomless refills of sugar-free squash at every visit - just remember the bottle at each visit, water is free at every visit and squash 50p per cup if a once upon a time refillable isn't purchased
