The MegaCentre Rayleigh soft play facility, known as Megaplay, is a super exciting place where children can play, explore and learn in a safe and fun environment that encourages their physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.

The benefits of soft play are well documented:

    • Encouraging active play
    • Learning through exploring a fun environment
    • Using imagination and exploration to learn confidence and independence
    • Trying new activities and achieving new skills
    • Developing new motor skills and problems solving through exploration
