Stay and play at Aylesbury Cheerleading Academy

38 Edison Road, Aylesbury, HP19 8TE

If you’re thinking this post is about a cheerleading class then I’m sorry to disappoint you – they also hold a stay and play session on Wednesdays and Fridays from 09:30 – 12:30.

When I first arrived I was very surprised at the size of the hall – it’s about ⅓ the size of a certain gymnastics neighbour. They have got various soft play obstacles and mats, an inflatable run (which is actually a lot better than a long trampoline because it’s firmer and more stable for smaller kids), a small trampoline and other toys. It’s a nice sprung floor for all the inevitable tumbles and bumps but it’s not so bouncy that it makes you feel sick.

There were about 20 kids when we went, which apparently was a very busy day. The session seems to be best suited from walking to about 3 or 4. The maximum age is 5 but I’m not sure if there’s enough to keep older pre-schoolers entertained (something that one of the followers on this page agreed with). It was a really nice session and smallest child really enjoyed herself (when she wasn’t hanging out in the lobby which seemed to be particularly interesting). The equipment was very well maintained and the whole place was really clean.

The only downside (other than being quite small) is that there is no refreshments for either children or adults. You can of course bring your own, but they’re not allowed to be eaten on the mats, which is fair enough. 

I think only older children would last the full 3 hours but it’s very good value for money, even if they don’t last the whole session.

Entry – £3 per child

Parking – on-site, free

Toilets – on-site

Food – none, you can bring your own snacks and eat them in the lobby.

Rating – 4 / 5
