Children’s Play Villages in the Midlands

Imaginative play centres are great for children to learn and explore. The child-sized role-play towns are designed for under 5s and are made up of mini buildings and amenities that we encounter in everyday life, including supermarkets, post offices, doctors' surgeries, hairdressers, and so much more!


While children are having fun at early years imaginative play centres, they are also learning social and motor skills which are important for their development.
