About us

‘Role Play World’ offers an educational and innovative children’s play experience, where children can learn through play. Seeing the world through little eyes, Role Play World is an alternating environment with fantasy and real-life experiences in a variety of role-play areas. Our ever changing role-play areas are built to emulate a classroom role-play area, bridging the gap between nurseries, schools and pre-schools.

Each role-play area is designed to interest children and entice them to engage in imaginative role-play. Children will broaden personal, social and emotional development, expand language and communication skills and evolve their knowledge of the world they live in. All whilst becoming lost in an imaginative world! The resources provided in each area will help encourage and extend play opportunities. Through role-play children’s imaginations will flourish in a stimulating learning environment. By changing role-play areas we can actively ensure children have fresh and exciting role-play experiences, which change with the times and encourage children to want to come back again and again!

Walk-ins only no booking required!

Please check on Facebook or give us a call to check if there are any parties/sessions booked at weekends as we close for any booked parties and reopen afterwards.

We don’t have much space in our front entrance, where possible if you can avoid bringing your buggy or pram that would be great. We understand it is not always possible but if you have a sling you can use instead it would be appreciated.

Our Zones

Role-play areas will include day-day experiences such as the home, fire station, castle, dinosaur land and a construction site, but also extend to environments that will take them on an adventure like our pirate ship!

New role-play areas will be introduced following the children’s interests and requests in our ‘feature room’. They might also be topical and link to seasonal events like Christmas!

The Castle

Become a knight or a princess and explore our castle to find the secret door!

The Safari area

Come and meet our safari animals and our cool jeep! Play with our lions, tigers, elephants and many more or sit in our Jeep wearing a safari hat! Children can immerse themselves in our play area and combine small play with role play. 

The Fire Engine

Climb into the fire engine and get your fireman’s hat on ready to drive to your next rescue!

The Pirate Ship

Ahoy mateys! It’s time to sail the seven seas and follow the treasure map to find the booty! Yo ho ho and a bottle of… milk?
