What is Totcity?
Welcome to Totcity – Andover’s new play centre for toddlers and pre-schoolers. Come and discover a scaled-down street designed to inspire young children to explore and pretend to their hearts’ content.
All children love to play make-believe and dressing-up, and our six play areas, equipped with child sized resources and dressing up outfits, will entice them to let their imagination fly. They can make an ice-cream sundae in the café, repair a broken wing mirror in the garage or do the weekly shop in our supermarket – they can be whatever they want to be today.
Why choose Totcity?
“Learning through play”
Totcity has been brought to life by Early Years Practitioners who are passionate about the value of play in children’s development. Role play helps children understand life in the world around them, and at Totcity they can try out situations and experiences in a safe and friendly environment.
“Spend time with me”
Totcity is your perfect place for toddler-and-parent time. Do you have the grandchildren for the day? Are you a busy childminder? At Totcity you can meet up with others who delight in children’s play. We serve coffee and other refreshments in our on-site café. Our youngest guests are also catered for: we have a small soft area with sensory toys for very young children, and have baby change facilities on site.
