Events & Programs

10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Kickstart your weekend by joining us at The Rooms! Spend Saturday mornings with your little ones in our charming Harbour View Room. It's a delightful opportunity for unguided playtime amidst a variety of toys and books tailored for toddlers aged 2 to 4.

There's no need to pre-register; simply pay your admission at The Rooms front desk and then drop in anytime between 10 am and noon and let the weekend festivities commence! 

While the activities are designed for children aged 2 to 4, younger kids are more than welcome. Caregivers are required to accompany their children throughout the session. Our program room can accommodate up to 20 adults with their little ones, but if it's full, caregivers are encouraged to step back momentarily to allow space for others to join in the fun.
