Thursday 26th September will be our last day trading as Once Upon a Playtime
- if you have parties booked with us please don’t panic, your booking will be honoured!

The new owner of the play centre will be closing for a week to rebrand and there will be a new entrance soon at the rear of the building.

Please don’t worry - the majority of normal smiling faces will be staying to settle you in to the new company it’s just the owners that will be changing and I can assure you the new one is lovely!

So it’s goodbye from me (no -really this time I promise!!) and thank you all for your custom over the last 10 years!
It’s been a complete honour working alongside so many genuinely beautiful people over the years, and an absolute pleasure watching all your bumps and babies grow! - Sarah 😘 xxx

Our centre focuses on having fun!

It offers children the chance for play, experimenting and learning in an environment that is safe, spacious and stimulating. Our play areas provide endless opportunities for creative and active play, as well as areas for relaxation and recharging in our quite areas and café. We are also on hand to create a memorable experience for parties and special celebrations.

We appreciate the need for children to be active, and encourage developing motor skills from a very early age. Our play frames nurture the youngest customer who needs the space to see, touch, move and experience. As they develop they will move through our play systems, activities and areas, from soft play to frames and ball pools, car tracks to sports court, and play frames to creative tables.

Our play centre is themed around a love of storytelling. Excitement and opportunities for imaginative and social play lie around every corner. We hold child care qualifications and are on hand to encourage skills such as role play, turn taking, group games and confidence building activities. But why should you miss out on all the fun!! All of our equipment is designed and built with adults in mind, so join in with the dress up, try out the slides, create something new or snuggle up in the book corner with a good story!
