Benefits Of Play – Mental
What is the importance of play in the development of a child’s brain? Obviously this is a really important aspect to consider for Eden Softplay; if we intend to be a force for good in the world, we need to be sure that our main product is most beneficial for the minds of those who use it.
Benefits Of Play – Physical
A family café like Eden soft play prioritises maximising the benefits their play space gives as children play on it. So we’re in the middle of discussing the emotional, social, physical and mental benefits of play. We discussed the social benefits last time, and this time I’m talking about a more obvious one, the physical benefits of play.
In 2011, Nottingham City Council published the Healthy Weight Strategy 2011-202, which stated that “Nottingham’s children have significantly higher levels of obesity compared to the England average at age 4 to 5 years”.
Joining The War On Waste – Super Kitchen!
In the last 2 years, since Eden Softplay opened in November 2013, we have always had our eye on the waste we produce. We’ve tried to do our bit, rising above the industry norms. We steer clear of disposable cups and plates, for a while we had chickens to eat the food left on plates (currently looking for a new outlet), we created two sizes for child meals to reduce food wasted (and money spent!), to name a few of our efforts.
It seems that the system of how we all get our food is broken though. Recently, there has been a lot of coverage in the media about the amount of food wasted by supermarkets. Apparently whenever a supermarket receives a stock delivery, a portion of that like likely to go straight into landfill! Even though it’s fresh from the suppliers! Crazy! France has responded by introducing a law that orders supermarkets to find a charitable output for this waste, so what about England?
