Children enjoying a role play session at Petite Street Playtown



Petite Street Playtown is an exciting role play centre based in Meadowfield, Country Durham. Created specifically for children aged 0-7 years old, our early years role play centre offers a fun and exciting environment where children can play, learn, and grow.

So, what can you expect when you visit our role play centre? Well, we have a very special little town here. In it, you’ll find a supermarket, hairdressers, nursery, a riding school and stables, a construction site, vets, and loads more. Everything is in walking - or crawling - distance; though we also have a great road system (complete with bridge!) if you prefer to travel by eco-friendly powered-by-legs car.


9:30am - 2:30pm
Weekends & some days during School Holidays
9:30am - 4:30pm

We offer a unique and popular alternative to soft play - an environment that offers numerous social, physical, and cognitive benefits for your child. And a role play centre that grown-ups love to visit too, thanks to the wonderful opportunities we offer for parent and child interaction and bonding. Oh, and the delicious selection of hot drinks and freshly-made snacks from our cafe - mustn’t forget them!


Come on in and see us at Petite Street Playtown - Durham’s favourite early years role play centre.


Role play is an effective way for children to explore and make sense of the world around them. It allows children to develop their communication and language skills, improves creativity, builds imagination and confidence, promotes social and emotional development, and supports fine and gross motor skills. 


And, of course, it’s great fun, which is why our Petite customers - and their grown-ups - love coming to our role play centre time after time.
