Soft play areas are hugely popular with parents of preschool children throughout the year and older children during the holidays and weekends. They can be extremely busy and the high volume of people, particularly children, increases the potential risks and hazards. It is not responsible or safe to run this kind of business without appropriate soft play insurance. All businesses need some kind of insurance and ones with additional risk such as this, require more specialist cover.

Why Do you need Soft Play Insurance?

Soft play insurance, at a minimum, will cover your business should an employee, visitor or other third party suffer an injury and claim you are negligent. Your insurance also protects your business should any of the above claim their property is damaged due to your business. After an incident is too late to get insurance and you should have the cover in place for your own protection. The costs of a compensation claim can easily ruin a business and it is also unsafe to operate without appropriate cover.

What kind of Cover do you Need?

The only compulsory insurance in the UK is employer’s liability insurance. If you have any employees this is essential to comply with UK law. Most soft play businesses should also consider:

  • Public liability insurance: to protect against claims from the general public
  • Product liability insurance: to protect against claims made against your business’ products/services

Some soft play insurance may incorporate other elements such as legal expenses insurance, loss of income or business interruptions cover. If you are not sure the level of cover you need, it’s time to speak to the experts.
