The Square opened for the first time on Monday 9th May 2016.  We wanted to fill a gap in Wells, which for far too long had almost no facilities for young children. We’re sited on a main road, within easy access from all routes and very easy to find. We’re also a very friendly team and like to think you’ll be pleasantly surprised, whether you’re a hardened soft play veteran or this is your very first soft play visit!

The owner, Steve, is a father himself and wanted to create the sort of soft play centre that he’d love to visit with his own children. His whole ethos was to turn the soft play model on its head, rather than creating a business focused on children, in which the adults were often a secondary consideration, he wanted to create a great café that adults enjoyed visiting as a place in itself, but which also happened to have fantastic, safe play spaces for their children.  We hope you agree that’s what he’s achieved!

Since our first year we have continued to expand, opening an outside summer courtyard, moving our party room into a much bigger space, installing an assault course as our third play area and then, most recently, opening a dedicated baby sensory room in early May 2018. Our final development will then be the exterior; although we have the advantage of being in a traditional building (far more atmospheric and ‘cosy’ than the usual retail units), it does mean we have a lot of work to do to turn our tired frontage into something that looks like an exciting play space. So in the meantime, please don’t judge the book by its cover, come inside and see for yourself…


Our Team…

There are 5 of us at the moment, so you should always see a face that you recognise on every visit. But who wants to see boring adult photos; this is all of us, from way back when we were all a good age for visiting The Square rather than working here*

*Some way further back than others!!
