Monkey magic is small and clean, but really only for use of under 5s. It's a little more expensive than some other nearby kindergartens and the cafe is also a little more expensive. Having said that it's still worth visiting.

Good place to take the younger generation of children, didn't see any child over the age of 7 years. All the activities are low themed, no huge climbing frames. There is a soft toy play area for toddlers and a ball pool. Food is available...More
