I don't even like the idea of swimming pool toilets and bare feet lol
    My kids take their socks off so they can climb up the slides! Tsk, tsk!

    That's why wearing shoes or socks is a complete waste of time in those places anyway!

    Default Wwyd: another shoes scenario

    To be honest, I thought the socks were for safety, not health.

    I've copped a few wicked burns going down slides with no socks.

    Omg I'm moving to wa I hate pokies with a passion.

    As for the op question. I would think it's gross and worry about broken glass etc in the club areas but wouldn't think anything else of it. In our local club the children must have shoes on at all times even in the indoor play area. Our local play centres have a sock requirement.

    I used to manage an indoor playcentre. I'd say the dirtiest/germiest is the ball pit, especially in the toddler section. Vomit and wee, an every day occurrence, and that's just when the parents actually inform the staff. And then of course all babies try to eat the balls... We ended up getting rid of the balls in the end as they were just so unhygienic.

    We don't have play centres where we are but we've been to a couple in the city and I swear I'd rather have my kids barefoot in our local district club toilets than be in a play centre full stop.

    Pokie area was in a separate part of the building. Play centre was embedded in the bistro area (from which pokie area was not visible) and you werent supposed to leave kids unattended in the play area (that's a whole other thread !)

    I've actually stopped taking ds to play centres as every single time he's gotten sick. This article has just confirmed my suspicions

    OMG....I am a total germophobe. That is so gross! I think I'll just buy DS a plastic bubble to live in now. Like a giant child sized hamster ball.....

    I hate play centres with a passion. I've made up an excuse to not be able to go to every party the kids have been invited to at one.
