Let’s take a closer look at our value ‘Safe and Secure’

January 24th, 2023|

Our value ‘Safe and Secure’ is so important to our ethos at Pop Up Play Village. Not only is it vital that our village is safe and secure for obvious reasons to keep both our little visitors and grown ups safe but there are other reasons too! Here they are below! The concept of Pop Up Play Village was designed because I was looking for a place to take my own children to that would be relaxing, stress free and fun. I found that when my children were little this was hard to find particularly with two children to

Fuelling Children’s Imaginations

January 5th, 2023|

Here at Pop Up Play Village fuelling children’s imaginations is what we are all about. It is one of our six core values which sit at the heart of everything that we do. Role play is the perfect type of play to fuel children’s imaginations. As a child gets into a role, they are imagining what it would be like to be that character using both knowledge and experience that they have of the world and their imaginations too. When a child walks into Pop Up Play Village, there is a whole village of role play scenarios to explore

Wedding Entertainment for the Little Guests

September 5th, 2022|

When I created Pop Up Play Village back in 2016, our wedding entertainment service didn’t exist. It wasn’t until after I launched Pop Up Play Village and I took my own children to a wedding that the idea came about. As a parent, taking young children to a wedding where there is no entertainment for them or nothing for them to do is really hard and by the end of the day, you are exhausted. This is how I felt taking my own two children and I remember being at the wedding with that light bulb moment where I

What does your child see when role playing?

August 3rd, 2022|

What I love about role play is that a child can take on any character that they choose and experiment and explore what it is like to be in that role. Through play, it is a comfortable and safe space to explore and learn about the different roles in the world around them. For children, this is a deep, meaningful, and real learning experience. An example is when a child is role playing being a doctor in our hospital. They are using all of their knowledge of what a doctor does in their play and when they are role
