Kids Play Cafe are really excited that we can welcome you all back. We are officially re-opened on the 1st September. Bookings only, walk-ins are allowed just before a session and we shall book you on arrival, you are welcome to contact us just before any session and see if we have any spaces left or check on the website. Please bear in mind the Government’s rule of six when booking to come, we can only have 6 people max booked in one person’s name.

We have only have one option available for you to book at the moment:
Book your session

Option one

Book a table for a 90/120 minute play session at Kids Play Cafe; there are a limited number of bookable tables. Each adult and child must have a seat at the table (except pre-walkers who may sit on an adult’s lap / use a highchair and are free entry when accompanying a paying sibling). If you only have a pre-walker and no other children you pay £5 as you are booking a table and every table is important due to lack of capacity during these times.

Please only select a table suited to your group size, if there is not a suitable table size please email us on customer@kidsplaycafe.co.uk. You can book more than one table, so for example if there are 5 of you coming you can book a 2 seater and a 3 seater and let us know we can put you next to each other. On arrival in to the entrance of the cafe we allow one booking at a time to take shoes off (please feel free to bring slippers or warm socks with you), we will take all your temperatures and ask that you sanitise your hands before entering. You will be charged £5 per child and up to 2 adults are free of charge per family. Any additional adults will be charged £3.50 each. You will be required to wear a face mask whilst walking around the cafe but once sat at the table you may take it off. If you are exempt, please let us know on arrival.

Payment must be made within 30 minutes of placing the booking via bank transfer. Some banks now require an extra check known as ‘Confirmation of Payee (CoP) when you make a transfer. This checks the accuracy of the name of the account you are sending to. Unfortunately our bank, Yorkshire Bank, is not one of the 6 UK banks signed up to this. It is possible to by-pass this on your banking system but please ensure you have entered our bank sort code and account details accurately before doing so.

Please contact us if you no longer require your table as we are running at a reduced capacity every table counts to us at the moment and we may be able to get it re-booked. If you wish to cancel or change the date of booking this must be done 24 hours before the morning of the booked session (no refund or transfer credit will be made otherwise). Bookings cancelled within 24 hours of the booked session are non-refundable and no refunds or transfer credit will be made if you do not attend your booked session. Please see terms and conditions for more information

Option two – Private hire – CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE

Contact us for private hire
£45 for 90 minutes. You can hire the entire cafe with one other family who are in your bubble, for 90 minutes play. Up to four adults and eight children only. The two families must be in a bubble together, you cannot invite people who are not in your household bubble.

Option three – Parties – CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE

Book your party
Parties are 2 hours for £150. We can provide a party for up to 10 children and 10-12 adults max. You will also get selection of party food (please ask for details) and unlimited squash.

If you are interested in booking either private hire or a party please get in touch with us via the website or our Facebook page. Please note we are not able to book option one, the smaller sessions at the moment until our booking system goes live.

Masks must be worn in the cafe by adults whilst moving round the cafe or going to the toilet. They can only be removed whilst seated at the table. All staff will be also wearing masks and we are fitting protective screens at the counter when paying. There will also be hand sanitiser stations and thorough cleaning between each booked session. The loose toys will be bagged up and removed for cleaning and replaced with a fresh set for every session.

Any questions please send us a message in the contact section. Thank you

How Kids Play Cafe supports education…

WHAT IS THE EYFS?

The Early Years Foundation Stage Profile sets out the standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.

COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGE

Kids Play Cafe gives children the opportunity to interact with others and use their imagination in real life and fantasy play areas. Communication and language development is about more than talking. It is about the different ways a child understands and communicates.

PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL

Personalsocial and emotional development (PSED) supports children to learn to get on with others and make friends, understand and talk about feelings, learn about ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, develop independence and ultimately feel good about themselves.
Children’s early PSED has a huge impact on their later well-being, learning achievement and economic success too.

BEYOND THE EYFS

The Key Stage 1 Curriculum is the standards which school plan their teaching around in Infant / Primary Schools for children aged 5-7 years old. Kids Play Café supports children to use their imagination, develop storylines, negotiate and compromise with others, all of which are vital building blocks for their future education.
