Parent and Tot Drop-in Class

Our Parent & Tot Program is a physical activity program for toddlers (ages 0-5) and their parent(s) or guardian(s). These games and activities provide young children with the opportunity to interact with other children, all while burning energy in a safe environment. Our recreation staff will be actively involved with the participants in each session, though children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. The program takes place outdoors at the Double Ice Complex playground and green space. Rainy day location will be Resource Room B, Paradise Double Ice Complex.

No registration required!
