Getting kids play centre ready for 2023
2023 has arrived, and along with it, comes a list of resolutions and goals set by many. For parents, it’s ensuring that their children get the very best out of life through educational, entertaining and simply wholesome experiences. This is where play centres play their biggest role.
Kylie-Jane Shannon, owner of Jungle Kids Indoor Play Centre, gets her children’s play centre ready for the year ahead, by educating parents on key items to bring when visiting Jungle Kids, or their nearest play centre.
“As the new year commences, it’s important to reaffirm that parents should be prepared for their children’s play experience. Having a simple yet effective checklist of items that their children may need when visiting their play centre is important,” says Kylie. “Below is a list of necessary items for children that parents should pack for ideal play centre preparation,” Kylie adds.
Wash towel/ face cloth: “As the Australian heat does its rounds this summer, keeping a dry and clean face cloth or wash towel for children is necessary,” says Kylie. From wiping sweaty faces, to a temporary dry up before heading home for a nice bath after a day of play, face cloths and wash towels do the trick to reduce germ buildup and keep children comfortable and dry after a sweaty day of play.
Spare clothes: “Keeping a spare set of clothes can come in handy for lots of reasons,” says Kylie.
Socks: “At Jungle Kids, socks are mandatory for a hygienic and optimum play experience,” says Kylie. Parents must pack socks for their children when coming to Jungle Kids Indoor Play Centre’s play areas.
Comfortable shoes: Where shoes are allowed, having comfortable footwear for children is a must for play centre fun. It allows them to have as much physical freedom and mobility that is uninterrupted throughout their play experience. For an after-play solution, pack a comfortable pair of slippers or comfortable and soft footwear to soothe their feet, as well as provide ventilation and much-needed air to avoid sweaty, smelly and hygienic issues.
Hand sanitiser: Sanitising children’s hands before play is crucial before and after play. “Most play centres will have onsite wash basins with liquid soap. Parents should use these facilities to ensure that their children are well-prepared hygienically for play,” says Kylie.
Bottled water: Kids will go through a long and hot day of play. Having cold water on hand is crucial. Alternatively, parents can purchase water from the play centre’s cafe.
Snacks: Strenuous playing can make anyone hungry. “At Jungle Kids, our delectable selection of healthy meals, chilled water and alternative beverages provides a great and affordable pit-stop for children and parents from our comfortable cafe,” says Kylie.
Backpack: A large, named backpack where all items can be kept safely is a must. “Teaching kids to keep their own items together in one place is a valuable learning experience for life,” says Kylie.
“Preparation may sound tedious and daunting, but when regularly done, the results will be a relief for both parents and children. Being prepared for a busy day of play ticks many boxes, so let’s get ready for a great year of great play,” says Kylie.
