Sensitive Santa

We’re creating a low-stress, sensory-friendly environment, without the crowds, queues, noise and other pressures.

2020 has been a challenging year for many, with lives altered and changes made to accommodate our new reality. But alongside this challenge, reflection has inspired hope too. Our connection to our community has deepened and together we have rallied to provide support for those most in need. While we understand here at Watergardens that Christmas may look a little different this year, we hope you’ll join us to celebrate what makes us all strong. Finding joy in everyday moments, rekindling our favourite family traditions and seeking out simple pleasures wrapped up with plenty of cheeky festive cheer.

 

Every family deserves the opportunity to capture a special Christmas memory with Santa, so we are delighted to bring our Sensitive Santa sessions back in 2020. We’re creating a low-stress, sensory-friendly environment that can be enjoyed by all, without the crowds, queues, noise and other pressures that can be associated with shopping centres.

 

Children can meet Santa within his Enchanted Forest located in the food court, before the Centre opens, with plenty of time to chat and run through their Christmas wish lists in calm and comfortable surrounds.

 

Families can take a seat near Santa within a safe 1.5 metre distance and have this special moment photographed by Santa’s team of special helpers, who will also be available to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. You’re also welcome to bring along your favourite festive costumes and props to wear for your snap with Santa.

 

The health and wellbeing of our community is of the greatest importance, so we will also have a number of hand sanitising stations located at the Sensitive Santa set, rigorous cleaning practices in place, and safe processes when it comes to the viewing and collection of photos.
Bookings are essential, no walk ins.

Our commitment to a safe Christmas

Our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and retailers is our primary priority, so we will continue to implement and maintain a number of precautionary measures to help keep our community safe this Christmas. 

These include:

  • A strengthened focus on disinfecting commonly touched areas.
  • Positioning of hand sanitiser stations at key points throughout the Centre.
  • Installation of signage and floor decals across parts of the Centre, reminding our community to keep 1.5 metres between themselves and others at all times.
  • Reminding our community to adhere to government mandates to wear a face mask while outside of the home, unless there’s a valid reason not to.

While our team focuses on protecting the safety and wellbeing of our community, we need you to play your part as well. Let’s work together to ensure we each practise safe social distancing during your visit to the Centre and keep a minimum of 1.5 metres between yourself and others at all times. It’s also important that we all maintain a high level of personal hygiene, and we encourage our customers to take advantage of the hand sanitisation stations located throughout the Centre. Please also wash your hands regularly, cover your coughs or sneezes with your elbow, and most importantly, stay at home if you feel unwell.
