What is there to do?

Kids LOVE playing, so isn't it great when you find a place that allows kids to enjoy unstructured and imaginative creative play - as much as they like!?

Bellaboo's Children's Play and Discovery Center is a self-directed play center which gives kids fun, colorful and secure areas where they can interact, explore, create and imagine.

Perfect for those kids from infants to nine, this indoor AND outdoor play center is all about allowing kids to learn through play. (And the great thing is, they'll never realize they are learning!)

The center not only has fun daily play for the kids, but they also have super fun activities and workshops which are actually included in the admission - we LOVE that! Want to hear some of the fun things that the kids can get up to at Bellaboo's Children's Play and Discovery Center? Yes? GREAT, because we'd love to tell you!

The Play Challenges are all about GAMES! These happen daily at 11am, and feature fun songs and games for the kids to enjoy - both indoors and outdoors. The themes change seasonally, and the games themselves are structured to give kids a chance to work with other kids and develop their skills.

Mmmm...what's that we smell? Must be the Children's Cooking, where three times a day kids can get together and make a tasty snack which they can eat when it's finished!  They can take pride in creating something that they can then enjoy (then they might be able to help the family in the kitchen and be excited about it!)

The Creative Discovery classes happen daily at 1:30pm and let kids learn and create something new...after all, creativity is a great way for kids to express themselves!

Then of course there is the 3:30pm story-time. This fun interactive activity is great for the kids who love to lose themselves in the magic of words! What adventures will they be going on next? 

Bellaboo's is a safe, and fun place for the kids to spend a day. It's designed to be child friendly, so you can reset assured your kids are in good, and creative, hands!

Have fun now!
