What a great discovery! Plenty of parking, small but with big enough variety and space for younger kids to be entertained and it’s still got a decent cafe. What is not to love!
Kids Connection is at 2 Dreadnought Road, Cnr Wakehurst Parkway, Oxford Falls, 2100. ( If you’re coming from east along Mona Vale road do not take the route which takes you south down Wakehurst – the roads aren’t proper roads and it’s a nightmare unless you’re in a big 4X4 rather take the long route down Forest Way, along Frenchs Forest Road and back up north along Wakehurst)(just saying 🙂 ).
Kids Connection is within the grounds of the C3 church and seems to be attached to the church building somehow but is very separate. From the parking, you enter through a court yard and into the cafe with the play area being outside of the cafe but covered.
There are three main play areas:
1. One giant play structure.
The only negative to the play area is that the outside is enticing to toddlers – especially the cosi coupe area but there are no restrictions on what age group kids can play there so you run the risk of your little ones getting overrun if you don’t keep them at arm’s reach.
I think the structure and what’s available to play on makes me feel as though this is best for kids 18 months plus but my 1 year old girl still got stuck in a had a good time.
We went this week during schools holidays and as such there was a ‘Holiday Special’ where it’s 2 kids for the price of 1 (I don’t know if this is only 2 kids from the same family or not) so we only paid $7. How cheap is that!! That’s almost half what you pay for a three year old at most places.
The Cafe serves Campos coffee and a good selection of food. Comfory chairs and couches to make you feel like you’re at an actual coffee shop. And for a big croissant with ham and cheese, a babychino and a Carmel macadamia slice I paid $10 in total and, and because it was our first visit I got my coffee free.
I will definitely definitely go back, maybe even next week.
