Itís no secret that Iím not the biggest fan of play centres, but I cannot deny my little girl the opportunity to run amok surrounded by soft cushioning, ball pits and padding.

My daughter is just under two and I find that many centres donít cater extensively for young toddlers, with limited play spaces for the under fours.

The Playground in Rockingham was a different story. With a large toddler play area, a bouncy castle and little rides for tots to enjoy, The Playground is a great space for toddlers and older kids alike.

Thereís a separate toddler play area for kids aged four and under, which is just jammed packed with things to do, including cubby houses to explore, a little swing and slide, a ball pit and little trikes to ride on.

There is a play structure for older kids, but I couldnít determine if there were age restrictions for younger kids. The structure is three levels of twists, turns and tunnels, with giant slides leading back to the bottom.

My little girl certainly enjoyed climbing up and down the padded steps, but I was terrified sheíd go off and explore the second level and Iíd basically lose her in there for the afternoon.

Luckily she didnít Ė the steps were far too interesting Ė and I managed to coax her down for a snack. The Playground has a cafť and caters for both adults and kids. I opted for the toddler taster, which was a plate filled with chopped fruit, veggies, crackers, cheese and a dip.

We ate and it was time for another play. There is another, separate area which I presumed is also for toddlers, as it housed a couple of cubby houses with little slides. There are arcade games and a second bouncy castle, plus several party rooms available for hire, with catering available.

The Playground was extremely popular on the weekday we visited, which is testament to its suitability for toddlers and kids who arenít quite old enough for school. With plenty of space and activities for things to do, your youngest members of the family just wonít want to leave.
