Danforth Location

We are all “all-under-one-roof” Children’s Activity Studio (recreational facility) located at 1856 Danforth Ave in Toronto. We feature an in-studio cafe for patrons who attend class or who join us for a play visit. We offer more then 30-classes per week primarily for 0-4-year-olds, but also offer classes for 4-8-year olds on the weekend as well as camps, kids-night-out, and special events.

Our studio was created for parents by two moms who wanted to create a safe and enjoyable place for parents and children where they could foster positive connections with their children as well as with each other. We invite you to join our community of like-minded parents.


A play visit is a great way to come and check us out for the very first time. No reservation is required, and you can join us anytime Mon-Fri from 9 AM – 3 PM (please check our studio hours at the very bottom of each page for any closure dates before coming).

In-Studio Cafe

Our in-studio cafe is just for clients who are on site for either a class or via a play-visit. Our cafe serves up yummy daily baked goodies daily such as muffins and cookies, and we have a great selection of panini pressed sandwiches and kid-friendly favourites (say Grilled Cheese!).

Lots of coffee drinks are also on our menu and we serve up the most delicious Reunion Island coffee sure to please all parents.

Our deli fridge is stocked with snack items such as yoghurt drinks, cheese strings and fruit squeeze pouches.

*We appreciate no-outside food when possible as we do have lots on our own menu but we also understand that allergy and dietary restrictions can be a big concern so in those cases an exception is made to our no-outside food rule. Same goes for baby food. When in doubt, please ask.

We have lots of highchairs and a microwave that we can heat up home-brought baby food in.
