Rules of Play

Alley Cats Rules of play
To ensure safe play, guardians must read, and adhere to the rules at all times.

1. No child will be admitted without an accompanying adult (over 18).
Guardians must remain in Alley Cats at all times and should never leave children unattended. They should observe the children, in their care, at all times. Guardians are solely responsible for the behaviour and well-being of all children in their care. We will not take requests for unaccompanied minors to go out of the gate without getting the guardian’s permission first. Alley Cats do not accept responsibility for supervision of children.

2. Children over 12 years old or over 4’ 10’’ (148cm) cannot use the facilities.
Height/age restrictions are in place: the Baby area is strictly for 0-12 months. The Toddler area is strictly for up to 59 months i.e. under 5 years of age. All children 5 years of age and over (60 months to 12 years) should use the large frame. Younger children may use the large frame, only if their guardian deems them capable. The appropriate level of supervision should reflect this. Adults and taller children must ask permission, from staff, if they wish to enter the large frame. Permission may be granted at their discretion.

3. Adults & children must remove shoes before entering the frames. Socks/stockings must be worn by everyone, at all times.
Bare feet are not permitted. Socks can be purchased at reception. It is recommended that long sleeves and trousers are worn, with tops tucked in at all times. Clothing made with man-made fibres, such as football tops, are not recommended.

4. No sharp or potentially dangerous objects can be taken into the Play Centre.
Lockers are provided for storing sharp items, lighters, matches, cigarettes, vapours, vapour refills, medication, etc. (This list is not exhaustive).
