Our Canada Day Celebration was great fun! Special thanks to our volunteers, supporters, and performers: Aiden, Astra, Brian, Clara, Dustin, Elizabeth, Jenny, Linda, Mark, Natalie, and Peter; as well as the lovely folks from BC Mobile Dairy Classroom and our neighbours at Destination Auto and The Granville Island Toy Company. Many hands make for excellent work!

Riding Your Bike to the Drop-In?
Please park and lock your bike on the outside of the fence around the playground. This reduces the congestion inside around the outdoor play areas.

We are open all summer long with our regular hours:
Monday - Thursday mornings from 9:30 - 11:30 AM and
Monday - Wednesday afternoons from 1 -3 PM.

And now, on to July!

Making sense of these confusing yet wondrous creatures lays the foundation for intuitive and fruitful interaction with them. Flora will facilitate the course which runs six Friday mornings. Cost: $70.
