Our Fun-loving Team create smiles and laughter 

Our Core Values:
Enthusiasm, Care, Integrity Innovation and Excellence

There is no greater joy than making others happy. The easy laughter of a child or spontaneous smile from a parent let us know that what we do is important and as those faces become familiar, friendships are formed and we look forward to the next visit. This is what drives us. 

 

By putting families at the heart of everything we do, our visitors, both big and small, have been enjoying special moments and creating lasting memories at Head Over Heels, every day since 2005.

 

Our inspirational recreational spaces and delicious food and beverage, create the backdrop for our team to work their magic and make Head Over Heels the play centres that are loved by both children and parents alike.
