Our play rooms offer an endless array of resources to keep children of all ages thoroughly stimulated and entertained including role-play, arts and crafts and even an X-Box and i-Pads for more technologically minded youngsters. Some of our rooms are suitable from babies as young as 6 weeks and others for children as old as twelve. We know every child is different, so our qualified staff team will be happy to show you and your children what is on offer: there is free-flow access to ensure every child is fully engaged.  

SUPERVISED SESSIONS

Parents are welcome to enjoy the play rooms with their children and we can also offer supervised sessions allowing parents some free time to relax on the resort. All of our friendly staff are SSSC registered (Scottish Social Services Council) and our Activity Centre is regulated by the Care Inspectorate to ensure the best levels of care are offered to each and every child.

Supervised sessions are 3 hours long and cost from £10 per child. They are available every Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am-12.30pm and 6pm-9pm. During school holidays these sessions run every day.  Please contact the activity centre directly to book and please give us 48 hours notice to avoid disappointment.
