You play while they play.
We are pleased to provide our members and day pass users with Child Minding services while you use the Centre.
Child Minding services are included in all annual memberships. This means that kids ages 2 months to 12 years old within the same household as an active annual member can play in Child Minding without paying an extra fee.
We use a pre-booking system for all children, which includes an online booking option.
Child Minding Details:
- Children ages 2 months to 12 years
