Funky Monkies Playhouse

When Justine and Rebecca took over at Horwich playcentre, Funky Monkies in 2009, they put into place plans for a complete refurbishment of the playhouse. Two years later their dreams have been realised following a massive financial investment that has paid for new and exciting sections to the playframe, a disco platform, additional slides, a dedicated soft play baby section with mirrors, balls and rockers and a football pitch alongside three newly decorated private party rooms. All Funky Monkies staff are First Aid trained and CRB checked. All the Funky Monkies full-time staff are working towards achieving NVQ 2 and 3 in Childcare.
