Date Night

Date night is available Friday and Saturday nights from 5.30 pm – 9.30 pm. Let us give your family a break by keeping your child safe and having fun in our center while you take some time to reconnect with your spouse, friends, colleagues or a have “ME” night alone to recharge.
This 4-hour block of time was developed through our own experiences as parents. Ya know, 2 hours is just not enough time for a date! You need 4 hours for a wonderful sit down dinner or a casual dinner and a movie. We feel that parents/caregivers deserve a night out without being rushed.
Our date night activities include free play of the center including use of the sport simulators when available for the first 2 hours and the remaining 2 hours will be an age appropriate movie shown on one of our sport simulator screens for the BIG movie feel. And of course POPCORN is included in the price.
Please bring your children ready to play with their bellies full from having supper at home. Ages for date night are 6-12 years old.

$30 per child

Indoor Play Structure

Our indoor play structure is nearly 1000 sq.ft. of absolute fun! You enter the playground climbing the moon bumps to slide down the super slide to the obstacle course of peaks and a balance rope that ends at the ball pit; or continue through to the cave peaks and crawling under the mesh to enter the ball roll over to enter the tunnel that connects you to our second super slide to the exit at the ball pit once again. Children just love to climb and slide and jump into the ball pit continuously.

The color scheme of the play structure is blue, red, yellow, orange and purple. It is very inviting, well built by a Canadian Company and is kept clean daily to ensure safe play.

Interactive Sand Table

This is an activity that truly needs to be experienced. This is where your imagination can be what you want it to be. How it works is there is a sensor and a projector. The sensor will determine the height of the sand. There are several themes but to describe this I will use the Ocean Theme. When the sand is at a high point, it will look like a mountain with land creatures and when the sand is at a low point it will look like deep ocean and ocean creatures will appear. This is a very interactive activity.
The sand in the table is sensory sand. It is very calming and allows the child to use their imagination.
Beware that this is SAND and SAND can be messy. Please keep the sand in the table for others to enjoy. Our staff works diligently to keep the sand off the floor. Please be kind and inform the staff if your child has carried the sand to another location or made a pile of sand on the floor. We will rectify the situation promptly ๐Ÿ™‚.

Toddler Soft Play

Enter our colorful space for the 3 and under to enjoy. From crawling through or climbing and sitting on the multi-colored caterpillar to building a tower with the foam blocks your child can immerse themselves in play. The giraffe slide is just the right size for the littles along with the foam slide for beginners.

Come sit with your little and interact with them while they explore!

What Parents Say

This is exactly what sylvan needed! I took my 6 month and 18 month old and they were entertained there for over an hour! The facility was very clean and the staff were so kind! I think I had more fun at the sensory table than them! Their favourite was the magnet wall for sure!!
I love how the sitting area still has full view of the play place so you can sit and still watch your kids play!!
