(AD) We were kindly invited along to visit the Owl tree’s children cafe which is located at Redhouse Farm Football Club, Kingston Park Road, NE3 2HY.
The Owl Tree Children’s Café is a non profit community café that seeks to bring together families.
There is free parking on-site when you arrive. But if you access the metro, the nearest stop is Wansbeck road metro station with a two minute walk to the venue.
The owl trees children cafe is there to support those families by offering a fun, safe space to play and offer home-cooked food at affordable prices.
They are not a “class” but they do offer 3 sessions per weekday (2 on a Friday).
Each week, they run a different theme and no two weeks are ever the same, ensuring variety of play on every occasion.
Each week, they also always have a sensory area, baby area, role play area, sensory trays and crafts.
The sessions is basically free play, they just want your little one to have fun, and they have something for all ages – it really is great.
And at the end of every complete session, they finish off with a unique song-time filled with your favourite rhymes and sing-alongs, which all the kids love to take part and it’s really engaging.
When booking session you must book online or check for spaces via their Facebook page which they post out daily for any spare spaces.
When booking you are asked if you would like to share a table with another visitor to ensure that everyone has a table, that they are not over crowded and having to turn anyone away.
I found this great, for parents who may not have any support around them to interact with others and build those friendships, that are very important as a new parent.
Sessions are £3.50 a child, but under 6 months are free. However, if you are struggling to get your little on out and about and money is an issue they do a funded option also – which you need to collect when booking.
And they also have a huge field outside, which will have space for the parents to sit and watch their children play.
They offer a range of homemade cooking, all adults options can be made into a children’s portion also.
They have a great option, where children can pick and mix – which i found great for children who may not know what they want, or am starting out on solids or even those picky eaters.
When paying for food, you can pay via cash or card also.
