This past Saturday my youngest and I were invited to attend the grand opening celebration of YuKids an indoor playground and party centre located within Erin Mills Town Centre. A welcoming, bright and clean space YuKids offers a revolutionary, soft play system first founded in Japan. The unique structures provide an engaging, enriching and educational play experience for children, and blends visual appeal with movement to create a unique and stimulating environment. YuKids is truly ideal for children 2-4 years old. I can honestly say this was our first indoor playground experience where I wasn't fearful of my 3 year old being mowed down by an older, faster child racing to the next structure.
The space also offers plenty of comfortable seating for parents and caregivers around the perimeter, plus the large open environment allows for clear sight-lines throughout. I was also very impressed with the level of security - each parent and child is given a matching and numbered wristband and no child is permitted to leave the gated playground without their accompanying guardian.
YuKids also offers birthday party packages complete with private party rooms, babysitting services, day camps, after school care and group rates.
Important to note before you check out YuKids for yourself:
1. Socks for both children and caregivers are mandatory. 2. The 48-inch height restriction is very much enforced.
3. Food/Drink is not permitted in the play space, however a cafe and seating area is located off to one side where your children can refuel and rest up for continued play.
With the addition of YuKids, Erin Mills Town Centre, a short drive from Oakville, will be a regular destination for our family - my husband can hang with our 3 year old in the playground, while I can shop the stores with my older daughter - everyone's happy!
