It’s been a long time in the making but we’re finally OPEN!

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to build a play centre with a difference and we’re so excited to say that Explore and Play is finally open!

The idea for Explore and Play came in 2019; we aimed to be open for Summer 2020, but of course Covid-19 had other plans. Three lockdowns, several months of hard work, buckets and buckets of paint, a LOT of squishy matting and several thousand toys later, and our centre is now open for visitors! The coffee machine is plugged in and primed, the cookies are almost ready to bring out of the oven and we’ve cleaned every inch of the centre to make sure everything is ready for you to come and have lots of fun.

Our play centre isn’t like other soft play places. We’ve created 12 themed zones, each one designed both for maximum fun but also with the Early Years Education Framework in mind, so kids can learn as they play. We’ve got transport, construction, Duplo and Lego, soft play, habitats, creative fun, reading, parent and baby, sensory, adventure, and our fantastic imagination village.

We were amazed and overwhelmed by how popular our first day was, with so many little explorers being the first to enjoy our centre. We’re so excited about the future and are getting lots of exciting events ready for the coming weeks. We’ll be posting regularly on our Facebook and Instagram pages, so make sure you hit like today to stay in the loop!

Looking forward to seeing you very soon!
