Our Play Area
Drop-in Child Care

Your babysitter cancelled at the last minute?  You need to buy a birthday gift or get groceries without having to baby-proof the store beforehand?   For just $5/hour, you can trust that your child is actively engaged in the arts and imaginative play, in a warm and safe setting, so that you can get things done!  Drop-in hours are 10-12, Monday through Saturday.  Other child care times available by appointment (Call Tonya at 299-4420).

ALL AGES WELCOME!  To read our Policy and Procedures and Childcare Agreement, click here.


Supervised Play and Art Centers

     For just $3/child or $5/family of 2 or more, parents can breathe easy, knowing that their children are not only being supervised, but actively learning through art-enriching activities or imaginative free play.  Play area is supervised from 10-12, Monday through Saturday and requires parent supervision at all other times.

    While children play,  learn, and create, parents can enjoy quality refreshments from our cafe, catch up on work, read, chat with friends, enjoy alone time, or use free wireless internet. 

    10-visit passes for play time can be purchased at the cafe for a discounted rate of $25 per child or $40 per family.

     Every first and third Friday of the month, from 6-9:30 you can enjoy an evening out while your child has an amazing night of fun and learning.  Games, crafts, stories and a light snack will be included.

    Cost is $20/child ($15 for second child from same family). Sign up and pay by preceding Wednesday to reserve your spot.  Activities are designed for children ages 2-10 years old, but all ages are welcome with advance reservations.
