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.

Session Types
If you are unsure of your session type please watch our short videos to help you work out the right session for your child.

Cafe

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.

Parental Responsibility

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.

Social Story

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)

Parking

There will be plenty of parking and a drop off point for those who need it. See our location page for details.

"We absolutely loved the pop up gym, genius idea - wish it was available all the time. Managed a full 50 min tutor session afterwards...that’s the power of sensory integration - usually 15 min max!"

"Jaiden who is 6 and I visited our 1st session today at Gympanzees, it was absolutely brilliant and Jaiden loved it. It was very relaxed for both of us and everyone was very understanding of all the children’s needs. I would fully recommend Gympanzees as there is nowhere else like it!"

"Today my 6yr old son and I attended the first Pop-up Gympanzee Activity Centre session. In my mind I knew what to expect, I’d watched all the videos and followed all the updates but I still wasn’t prepared for the amazing feeling I came away with."

"This was our 1st visit with our 2 boys and it was fantastic, both boys had great fun, there is so much for them to do. We will be coming back every week! I hope this can become permanent as it is very much needed as it is the only place to cater for a full range of disabilities and the people are lovely."
