Rooms and Facilities
The facilities will have 9 separate play rooms/ areas – 2 sensory rooms, an indoor and 2 outdoor playgrounds, a music room, soft play room, a fully inclusive gym and a trampoline room as well as breakout rooms for those who need them. The equipment and set up of the rooms encourage play, exercise and a varied sensory experience for all abilities.
Each room has hoists and play/ exercise options for different abilities or disabilities. We have changing beds and hoists for toileting and are controlling numbers of attendees, depending on the sessions, to cater for different sensitivities and needs.
There will also be a cafe providing sandwiches, fruit, snacks and of course – a selection of our famous homemade cakes. We have a range of cold drinks alongside our brand new coffee machine, offering a variety of hot beverages. Somewhere you can relax and chat to others after your session.
Parents are responsible for all their children but we have members of staff in each room who are specialised in working with children and young people with disabilities who can give you a hand to access equipment and make the most of the centre. Please note they are not responsible for looking after your children and you will be required to agree to a waiver to attend the Pop Up.
You can download and edit and print the Gympanzees social story and go through it with your child so they have a better idea of what to expect. Gympanzees Social Story (.pdf)
There will be plenty of parking and a drop off point for those who need it. See our location page for details.

“Jaiden who is 6 and I (Mummy) visited our 1st session today at Gympanzees, it’s was absolutely brilliant and Jaiden loved it, his favourite rooms where soft play and outdoor play, but all the rooms were great. It was so lovely to visit here it was very relaxed for both of us and everyone was very understanding of all the children’s needs, we can’t wait to visit next week with Jaiden’s brother Max who is 4 so they can enjoy playing together here. I would fully recommend here as there is nowhere else like it!”
