New! ASN Softplay Sessions at Tumbles in Portobello

Come along and try our new weekly softplay sessions for children with additional support needs at Tumbles Softplay Centre in Portobello. The sessions are every Saturday from 5:30pm – 6:30pm. 

Play is an essential part of growing up for all children. 

Regular play supports children to lead a healthy active life, encouraging their learning, developing their confidence and creating opportunities for them to develop friendships.At Edinburgh Leisure we believe that play is for everyone and we recognise that some children and families need more support than others to get active and stay active. For some children with additional support needs a busy softplay session might feel overwhelming. 

Within our Tumbles Softplay centre in Portobello we’ve created a specific session for children with additional support needs.These sessions have been designed to provide an inclusive service for children with additional support needs. We feel the sessions will be appropriate for families of children with additional support needs, e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorders, Sight and Hearing Impairments, Global Developmental Delay, and Genetic Disorders.

What do you need to know?

  • The sessions will take place every Saturday Afternoon 5:30pm – 6:30pm at our Tumbles Softplay Centre in Portobello
  • Tumbles offers opportunities for all children to have an amazing adventure with carefully designed baby, toddler and junior zones.There’s a comfortable cafe with uninterrupted views across the forth serving quality coffee with tasty (and healthy) treats for both parents and kids.
  • Siblings without additional support needs are very welcome to attend the sessions too. We want the whole family to be able to play and get active together.
  • Sessions are free for children aged 0-6 months;  £1.50 for children aged 6-12months, £3.50 for children aged 1-2years old, £5.50 for children aged 3years and older.

Our Tumbles Softplay centre can only allow one wheelchair user access to the mezzanine floor at a time; If you require a wheelchair to access these sessions and would like to talk through your access requirements please contact tommygeorge@edinburghleisure.co.uk in advance of the session to discuss attendance.
