*What if we leave something behind?

We are not responsible for any lost or stolen items. Please do a double-check before you leave our playspace! We do have a lost and found at the front desk that is donated weekly. If you did leave something, please come retrieve it as soon as possible, within the week!

We accept cash. We do not accept personal checks and we are NOT able to accept bills over $20 at any time.

 

*Can I have my child’s birthday celebration during a class/event or Open Play? 

No. We do not allow parties of any kind during our programming or Open Play. Instead, we allow birthday "play-dates" where guests may bring in gifts, but we draw a strict line at bringing in any outside catering, decorations, or re-arranging tables and/or furniture to accommodate your celebration. Doing so may result in you being asked to leave. If you are bringing your child to a class/event or Open Play on their birthday, please instead let us know and we will have a little surprise for the birthday child! Alternatively, please contact us to request our space rental form for a private birthday celebration event! 

*Does your facility enforce a playspace capacity? 

Yes! We make sure the playspace is as comfortable as possible at all times. Our playspace capacity is 25 children. Registration for all classes and events are required online, ahead of your visit. 

*Can I pay for classes or events at the door? 

All classes and events require online registration. Please see our 'Programs' tab for more information and registration details. This helps us plan ahead and make sure our events do not get too crowded! We do not accept bills over $20. 

 

*What does your playspace look like? 

We will be uploading photos shortly.  At which time, we will attach a link so that you could check us out!
