WELCOME TO CUDDLES & GIGGLES, LLC

COME PLAY WITH US!

I am a licensed, Mommy (or Daddy) & Me group specially designed for children ages 1 to 4 years old.  I offer classes with fun, seasonal themes for each age group.  You and your child will meet new friends within our community!  Children can participate at their own comfort level. 

The large play area is designed for parent and child to choose different activities for the last 30 minutes of the class.  The first 15 minutes of the class is a structured circle time that includes early education readiness that involves songs, colors, letters, numbers, shapes, bubbles.  Movement with musical instruments will end each class.  Both parent and child will experience the joy of learning through play.

The kids will use the felt board, dance with our disco lights and craft or paint during certain themes. Our play area encourages fitness, motor skills, creativity, coordination, sharing, physical development, patience and socialization.  You and your child will dance, sing, listen to stories, roll in our ball pit, hop on our pirate ship, jump on our trampoline, play with a variety of toys and enjoy our indoor treehouse with a slide.  We meet weekly where friendships can be made for yourself and your little one as we all learn together.

Why is Circle Time So Important?

Children may not realize that a circle is an ancient, universal, and simple symbol of unity and wholeness, and that circle time, as an activity for groups of children, has been around for about a century. Since there is no beginning or end, every individual in a circle is equal and belongs to the whole group. Expanding on this idea, the most successful circle times include acceptance, openness, and non-judgmental expression of ideas. 

What Children Gain from Circle Time  

Since the opportunities for reading, discussion, and play in circle time are endless, so too is the opportunity for children to learn and grow. How to behave appropriately in a group is a learned skill, which prepares young children for more formal education, for other group activities, and for many experiences in adult life. Everything from social skills to language to empathy can be gained with practice in circle time. For example, when children:

COMING SOON! SOFT PLAY PARTY RENTALS!

Cuddles & Giggles mobile soft play party rental service serving Fauquier County, Western Prince William County and Culpeper County. 

To my surprise, there were not really many options for toddler gyms in or around the Fauquier County area when I went searching for some.  Cuddles & Giggles is the first in the area to provide this service for your indoor or outdoor party needs.

I provide a fun-filled and safe environment for babies and toddlers to play.  They will have a blast for hours bouncing, crawling and climbing.  Soft play encourages motor development and jumping/rolling without fear of injury.  Having a space with good sensory lighting will provide the sensory development they need to move and learn.  It is great for improving coordination, motor skills and imagination.  My soft play equipment has the flexibility to entertain children from 8 months to 4 years old. I will deliver, set up and breakdown the soft play equipment for you.  I will bring the fun to any event!

My equipment is designed for energetic babies and toddlers. They will be encouraged to climb, explore and learn as they play on the soft play.  It is perfect for crawlers and new walkers to climb and play.

Your event could include:

My equipment includes:

FAQ's

1. What ages are appropriate for your play area?

My playground is designed for crawlers up to four year old children.  Adults may enter the play area, but may not sit/play on the equipment (excluding floors mats.).  They should only be in there to support and supervise the lil' ones.  Each child needs to be monitored during use of our playground

2. Do you set up indoors?

I am able to set up indoors and outdoors but not in rainy weather.  The equipment may become slippery and unsafe for children.  I recommend to have shade for outdoor set-ups as the equipment does get hot with sun rays.  A flat area of concrete is best for setting up.  I can set up on any other surface but it may not be level.

3. Who assembles and breakdown the play area?

My team will assemble and breakdown the soft play equipment for you on the date of your event.  Time varies.  It can take anywhere from one hour to 1.5 hours for set up and same from breakdown.  I will reach out a week before your event to coordinate delivery and pick up.

4. How much space do I need for the playground?

I recommend measuring your available space to make sure it fits before booking your event.

5. How often do you clean your equipment?

Each piece is sanitized and disinfected after each use. I use non-toxic, fragrance-free that kills 99% of harmful viruses, mold, bacteria, and fungus.

6. Do you require a deposit?

In order to have your date booked, a $100 deposit is required to book your event. The deposit will go toward your balance which is due the day before your event.  Paperwork will be emailed accordingly. The balance is due by 6pm the day before your event.

9. What forms of payments do you accept?

10. Is there a delivery charge?

There is no delivery charge if your requested location is within 25 miles of my home office. Due to increased fuel and labor time, there will be an additional delivery fee of $50 if your requested location is located outside this parameter.

11. What is your Cancellation Policy?
