Today we went to Cwmbran and took Ashley to a soft play session at a local company. I’m not going to name the company as I don’t feel they deserve a mention. They are overpriced at £3.95 for a session, this is regardless of the child’s age. They have notices up saying children should be supervised at all times but I saw quite a few in the ‘Under 3’s’ area where Ashley was playing. No member of staff said anything to these parents or asked for the bigger children to be removed. I had to bite my lip on several occasions and asked one Mummy if her little one who was aware he was pushing Ashley over with a toy tractor if they would ask him to stop before he hurt him.
They have what they call a cafe charging £1.95 for a cup of Nescafe, I thought that was a bit steep. The equipment there is good quality but one wonders if it will be maintained with such lackadaisical staff working there.
Ashley loved being with other toddlers, he’s not quite walking yet but managed to get around and did a few roly-polys’ on his own too. Although he doesn’t say many words he chattered in his own way with other kiddies and made plenty of noise!
He saw my camera in my hand and grunted at me while he stood quite still and posed for this one..He’s such a diva at times!!
