Neil and Jo Rose with their children Lachlan, 7, and Andy, almost 2

September 29, 2013

Looking for something to keeps the kids amused during the school holidays? Then a new Nanango business could be the answer …

Neil and Jo Rose have opened “Rosie’s Fun 4 All” at 14 Racecourse Road (on the “entertainment end” of the D’Aguilar Highway – just down from the go kart track, on the way to the racecourse).

The couple has developed an “activity centre” which targets the 0-13 age group.

There’s inflatables, games and activities, and a special play area for babies and toddlers.

Neil, who is well-known around the South Burnett for his karaoke business, has lots of experience working with children. He was formerly the sport and recreation officer at Cherbourg and conducts Active After School programs in Yarraman, Nanango and Kingaroy.

He has big plans from Rosie’s Fun 4 All. This is only the first stage of what is planned to be a three-stage project.

However the couple has already erected a 10m “giant tree house” slide as well as jumping castles, sandpits and an inflatable obstacle course.

Neil is also planning puppet shows and other activities.

Rosie’s Fun 4 All is open open from 9:30am-4:30pm daily during the school holidays. During terms, it will be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

And it’s definitely not a child-minding centre.

Adults have to be in attendance to supervise their children, however they can relax and enjoy a cuppucino, pies or muffins at the on-site cafe.

Children can buy a “casual visit” pass or passes for five or 10 visits.

Murals and other artwork at the centre have been provided by Vikki Jiminez from vikki.biz

Rosie’s Fun 4 All can also host birthday parties in their special Party Room.

Entries in the Nanango Mardi Gras colouring-in competition will be on display at the centre later this week.
