Role Play Village

Our educational Role Play Village where children are given the unique opportunity to use their imagination & creativity whilst entering a world of make believe.

Each of the 10 destinations of our village represents a real world scenario with miniature tools and utensils to immerse themselves into that specific role. Our scenarios are those that your children will come across during their day to day lives and we’ve also included areas to promote and develop special interests and to inspire your little ones.

What to expect
  • Perfect opportunity for children to learn through play.

  • No formal teaching we focus on children leading their learning.

  • Open ended toys, to let imaginations flow.

  • Designed with children’s development in mind.
