Playcentre's like all businesses have been heavily burdened with the impacts of COVID-19. Unlike other businesses, Indoor Play Centre's are unable to pivot into alternative business models. (Online, Delivery, Outdoor Dining).  

Running an indoor Playcentre comes with high overhead costs that must be maintained regardless if we are open or closed. For Example - Rent, Electricity, Public Liability Insurance, Loan Repayments and Interest.

Playcentre's in NSW are currently stuck in a NSW Health category that does not allow us to open, and more recently have been forcefully shut by NSW Police. The current public health order does not allow for "play centres" to open however allows for indoor recreation to open (Indoor Trampoline, Bowling, Indoor Inflatables, Indoor Sports). 

If our playground was within a common area of a shopping centre - we could open
If our playground was within a fast food restaurant - we could open
If our playground was within a restaurant or club - we could open

Please help us in getting our Play Centre's open in NSW, we provide employment to many thought who during this time are ineligible for government support and are effectively unemployed.

Playcentre's play an important part in the Cognitive Develop and Growth, Social Skills and developing fine motor development in our young children and are able to operate in a COVID Safe way. There has been 0 recorded cases of community transmission within a Playcentre in Australia.
