Register your child

Our new registration system requires you to register at playwaze.com online or using the Playwaze App. The app can be downloaded from Google Play or the App Store.

All children and young people who use our play centres must be registered. The registration form provides essential information about the child, including emergency contact details of their parent/carer. This ensures that play staff are aware of all the children’s support needs, that it meets standards set by Ofsted and that parents or carers can be contacted quickly in the unlikely event of an accident or emergency.

You will need to fill in a form for each child you are registering. Once you have registered you can access all of our play centres and events.
