The Green Play House was created almost 2 years ago. An idea between two friends with our children in mind. As childminders, we both loved our jobs but wanted to venture down a different path, to provide another type of service for children and their families in our town.
We started our search for units, and quickly discovered that this wasn’t going to be an easy task, with available industrial space being in short supply … fast forward 18 months, and with a new addition to the team, in early January 2019 we found our unit.
Not huge in size, and only a shell of a building but we fell in love and were eager to make our vision become a reality.
The past 6 months have been exceptionally busy. We have spent hundreds of hours researching, taking courses, sourcing reclaimed materials and furnishings with the most potential to be up-cycled. (The environment being another one of our passions)
We have aimed to create an exciting fun filled space for the children of Barnoldswick and further afield to come and play.
It’s been a busy few months, but we feel the results have been worth it all, we hope all who visit Barnoldswick’s first soft play centre will love the Green Play House as much as we do.
We would like to say thank you to all who have helped us.. family and friends for all your support, help and ideas, our husbands who without your help none of this would be possible but most importantly our children. You were the reason this adventure began.
