Meet the Team



Myself and Louise set up Playmania at the Elsecar Heritage Centre in Barnsley back in 2005 so we have lots of experience running play centres. Whilst Louise's experience is in office management, I I trained as a nursery nurse many years ago and have worked in lots of different childcare settings including schools, nurseries, crèches, play centres and children’s holiday clubs.



Very exciting times as we launch our 2nd play centre here in Sheffield. We are very passionate about our business and work hard to make Playmania a success. We would love to hear your feedback and will always do our utmost to give the best possible customer service we can.



My previous roles have been with Sheffield City Council managing various sports and activity schemes. I have always worked with children and enjoy new challenges. Setting up our new centre has been a rollercoaster of a journey but worth the hard work.
