Whilst we are managing the risks of Covid 19 our playgrounds cannot run the same open access service that we love.
To keep the children safe all activities take place outside, children only use the inside for toilets. We are asking that all parents remind children that they must keep their distance from others whilst on the playground. We hope you understand the restrictions imposed by the government and will abide by the lockdown rules. Covid Safety: Info for Parents and carers, 2021 Adventure Playgrounds
Our Adventure playgrounds are still free!
When we come out of the pandemic we want to move towards the open access play model which we believe in. Open access means that Adventure Playgrounds are spaces where children are free to come and go as they like, free to play how they want and free at the point of access. This puts children’s choice at the centre of our work, children decide how and when they play, with who and where, and let us know whether the playground is a good place to play or not. They can choose to leave if it is not good enough for their needs. We are a play service and not a childcare service.
We need you to be available on the phone if your child needs to go home. There may also be an unusual situation in which we ask you to collect your child. We will ask you or a nominated person to do this. If this is impossible for you, then you may need to book a childcare service which can be found on the Islington Council website.
