Trio Cafe, Glow Church Robina

While Trio Cafe at Robina is a stand out on its own – fantastic food, great coffee and the perfect sized kids snack boxes – Glow Church have made this space even more family friendly. Head there Tues-Fri between 9-11am, and you can hang out in the youth space for Glow Time! Please check their social media channels for updates during the school holidays as opening hours may change.

During Glow Time, the youth areas of Glow Church are open to families with kids aged up to 6yrs to hang out, relax with a coffee and let the kids play. Usually reserved for the children attending weekend church services, these areas are incredible – one mum commented that it was like having access to a daycare facility, but even nicer! Grab your coffee from the cafe and let them know you’re there for Glow Time and they’ll show you the way.

As you enter the youth space, you’ll find a room with little houses and doors… pick a door and enter a child’s wonderland! The inside rooms are great for babies and toddlers, with a safe space for crawling and plenty of toys to play with. There are cubby houses, cars, puzzles and all sorts of toys. There is also a Junior Glow Jungle, a mini play centre full of soft fall elements, and interactive play pieces. But that’s not all! Head through the next door and you’ll find the big Glow Jungle! This is the big play centre, with slides, a flying fox, and all sorts of fun and games.

The kids had an absolute ball, and it was a great opportunity for the parents to connect and talk. Everyone was really welcoming and friendly. The incredible part is, this is all free! Our morning out cost us only the price of a coffee (plus a few treats for the kids!). I love that Glow Church have given the public this opportunity to visit their facilities. My only comment would be if you visit, make sure the kids are respectful of the toys and to put the toys away after your visit, as they are used by the children attending weekend Services and I’d hate to see them damaged and this opportunity to play revoked.

This is one that we’ll definitely be back to visit!
