“Thank you for allowing my boy to be a kid in an environment that he would usually find overwhelming…”
“I just wanted to say thank you to the whole team for today. All the children really enjoyed themselves and loved the soft play area and rides. They all went home very happy and tired.
Everyone at the centre was great and were really helpful in making sure the children enjoyed themselves and that everyone was safe.
Thank you again for catering for our children with special needs and to the staff and parents that were there too for being accepting of the children’s autism. “
SEN indoor soft play – “…I cannot fault Gambado for being one of the few places that caters for special needs. To allow ALL children the same access to experiences regardless of their needs is so important and for Gambado to recognise this and close the centre to the general public, instead focusing on families that have children with specific needs despite it probably meaning that they make less money, is admirable.
Thank you Gambado for allowing my boy the chance to be a kid in an environment that he would usually find over whelming. He loves Gambado and we will be back every month now. Hope to see more places following this example.”
“My son always loves Gambado and has an absolute ball every time we visit. This is our preferred soft play so when I saw they were doing an autism session I booked to take my son to that. We met up with some of his nursery friends and it was a brilliant session – all the kids loved it. I’d like to say a big thank you to Gambado on behalf of all the autism parents who attended. We greatly appreciate you running these sessions for our kids. Well be back for the next 1 can’t wait! :)”
Come and join us at our SEN & Autism friendly indoor soft play sessions at Gambado! We welcome young children with all types of disabilities and special educational needs (SEN and SEND). Children with SEND or autism can play in our centres for free while they are closed to the general public. Accompanied siblings are welcome and will be charged a £5 admissions rate.
We offer free entrance for every carer accompanying 1 child if disability ID is shown (DLA form for example). Visitors they will be asked to show their Disability Living Allowance letter, bank statement showing Disability Living Allowance, or a letter from a medical professional body confirming the diagnosis.
We are able to tailor a play session specifically for your needs, and can offer extra equipment and space such as a ‘quiet zone area’ when possible. We have symbol signage on site to help the children’s understanding of each area. If pre-booked with us, we can offer things like arts and crafts tables and equipment, musical instruments, and material play boxes. Check with your local site as to what’s available in advance of your visit.
Call our friendly bookings co-ordinators and agree booking dates and times 5 days prior to the booking day. We will ensure we have everything ready to make your day as much fun as possible!
Many of our centres also offer SEN indoor soft play evenings exclusively for children and their families. Check your local site for our monthly events. For more information please contact your chosen site – Beckenham, Watford, and Chelsea, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
