360 Play COVID-19 Update – Sorry 360 is closed for the time being

We are sorry to announce that following the government advice to us all on reducing social interaction and to avoid smaller public spaces, we have taken the difficult decision to close all our 360 Play centres until further notice.

The health and safety of all our staff and guests is our top priority. The decision we have taken today has been made with all of you and your families in mind and to try to help reduce the transmission of the virus. Please be assured our team has been working hard over the last few weeks to do everything within our power to ensure 360 Play was as safe as it could be but in light of the changing advice over the last few days we have had to take the decision to close. All our centres and our head office are now closed and staff members at home with their families helping to do their bit to stop the spread of the corona virus.

Birthday Parties – our sincerest apologies to anyone who has a birthday booked with us, we are so sorry that we have to disappoint any child. We have tried to contact everyone who has a party booked with us until the 10th April and if we have been unable to contact you or if you have a party booked from the 10th April until we reopen, don’t worry we will be in touch as soon as we reopen offering to reschedule your party or refund monies already paid.

Annual Passes – these will be extended by however many days we stay closed.

Direct Debit Passes – we will not be taking payments from members for their passes while we are closed. 

Upcoming events and classes – we will be updating schedules and will keep you posted via our website, emails and social media.

 As a family business we are devastated to announce this decision but everyone’s health and safety must come first. We’d like to thank you for your loyalty and understanding during this uncertain time. We look forward to welcoming you again, hopefully very soon.

 With our very best wishes,

 Duncan Phillips & the 360 Play Team

360 Play in the School Community

Did you know that what your kids do after school can affect what they do at school? Research shows that regular physical activity contributes to better academic results, improves concentration , helps development and helps to protect against negative behaviours such as bullying.

 

At 360 Play we are passionate about giving children and their families the chance to enjoy active, creative and engaging play. 10 years ago when everyone was embracing screens and phones and gaming, we decided to go back to basics and that’s how 360 Play Milton Keynes started the play revolution – no screens, no electronics, just play.  Our modern lives means that children don’t get the chance to play out as we did  and the after school period is often a sedentary time for them as their parents may tend to keep them indoors in a safe place instead of running around outside when they really need the chance to unwind after concentrating in the classroom all day. Our centre provides a safe and secure environment where they can do just that – whatever the weather.

 

360 Play isn’t all about soft play, it’s a family entertainment centre with something for everyone.  We realise that even children in the same family are very different so we have designed a wide variety of activities to suit all and as its one entry price for everything, children can choose what they want to do in a safe environment and then change their mind and try something different.

 

We now have seven centres ranging from 12 000 sq ft to 28 000 sq ft housing 360 Street, dodgems, a musical carousel, soft play frames, sports arenas, table tennis and table football. 360 also hosts classes and has an in-house messy play area with a schedule of activities linking to the Early Years Foundation Stage of learning. Some of our centres have harnessed climbing attractions and some have outside areas containing climbing, paddle boats, role play houses and a big favourite, a giant sandpit.

 

360 Street role play is a massive part of our back to basics philosophy. Role play is so key to a child’s development – they watch, they copy, they learn.  We provide the safe environment to explore, to learn risk without risk. Luigi’s Pizza parlour, Vets ‘n’ pets, Twirl’s boutique and Twizzle’s Garage are just a few of the street brands now familiar to customers at 360 Play.

 

As a local business we are proud to support our community and so we decided to give local schools the chance to visit us for a play session after school free of charge. This is a great opportunity for children to rediscover the centre and enjoy spending time with their friends and for some to experience what we have to offer for the first time. We are thrilled to be welcoming them along for our 360 Play in the Community School Days.

 

This week we have been welcoming children to our centre in Milton Keynes and we have been delighted to speak with parents who understand and share our ethos and enthusiasm for active play.

‘This has provided me an opportunity to bring my child here where I wouldn’t have been able to afford to do so before. Thank you’  Kylie Bates – Rickley Park School

‘Good idea for the kids to spend time with friends they don’t usually see out of school.’ Ceri Tyers – Rickley Park School

‘Really good idea, kids have had so much fun! Great idea for SATS week too. Thank you’  – Parent from Chestnuts school
