360 Play proudly support World Book Day

At 360 Play developing children’s creativity and imagination is a huge part of what we do. Reading is such a great way of stimulating children’s imagination and so World Book Day is something we proudly support. And we love any opportunity to dress up too, of course!

For this year’s World Book Day we invited children to come along with their favourite book and costume and everyone who dressed up got to come and play for free. There were some hidden book covers around the centre and everyone who took part in our book covers search was entered into our prize draw to win a Quarterly Play Pass. Our mascots Twizzle and Twirl joined in with a special mascot story time and there were story time sessions throughout the week in our messy play area.

Chloe, our assistant manager at Milton Keynes said “It was so lovely to see children and their families working as a team and running around the centre trying to find the book covers to complete their quiz sheets! Everyone in the centre had made such a great effort to dress up and the little ones looked amazing! It was a great day all round”

MK’s Parent and Toddler event was a great success

We were delighted to welcome new and expectant parents along to our free baby and toddler event at 360 Play Milton Keynes on Wednesday 27th February. It was a great opportunity for local families to try out informative classes and workshops from leading professionals on topics such as breastfeeding and baby first aid. We welcomed over 25 local businesses who all had stalls throughout the centre for parents to browse and enjoy and there was all the usual 360 Play fun to be had too making it a great day out for young families and a great introduction to the centre for anyone visiting us for the first time.

“It was a great event, well organised and an opportunity to meet families in an informal setting.” said Tamsin from Water Babies “I love the way that there are activities for all ages of children and the children are encouraged to explore and use their imagination whether it is dressing up or chasing bubbles”

 

stallholdersKate who hosts Baby College classes at our centre on Friday mornings said “Having been invited to attend the Baby & Toddler Fayre at 360 MK Play as an exhibitor I have to commend the team on the organisation and press surrounding this event. It was a very well turned out event and it was a pleasure to meet so many bumps, babies and toddlers. It was also an opportunity to meet like minded businesses. Can’t wait for the next one!”

 

happy stallholdersOur management team put together the event with the support of the local business community and our staff were thrilled with the turn out. “We have had some great feedback from both stall holders and customers” said Assistant Manager, Steff Kelleher-Crook  “Some customers said their favourite thing about our facilities is that ‘There is something to do for all ages and loads to do’ and ‘Knowing my grandchildren are always safe’. We would like to thank all the stall holders and customers that attended and made it a successful and enjoyable event for all.”
