Hi fellow parents,
Long time reader, but first time I've posted.
I am after some advice/feedback from parents and can't wait to hear your thoughts. For a long time I've had this idea that I'd love to run children's parties but don't want to buy a play centre as such. I like the idea of running private tailored parties (one party at a time) in a smaller venue. I have lots of ideas which I won't bore you with (yet) but primarily around running parties for special needs kids. For example I can't find party venues that are easily wheelchair accessible and offer games/fun for people with disability.
I think there may be a market for kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder (as one example) who don't always like joining in group games but love doing individual activities/crafts alongside their friends. I could set up play areas where kids could choose what they want to do or lead the kids through fun/creative activities. For some parties an entertainer, like a magician, might be more suitable.
Anyway, like I said I won't go on but I thought this would be the perfect forum to reach out to about this. Do you think there would be a need? Do you think people are interested in hosting private parties?
I am based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and am thinking of opening my business somewhere in the City of Knox.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and feedback.
