Qualified staff teach a curriculum for toddlers aged 18–30 months, preschoolers aged from 30 months to 4 years, and kindergartners. Everyone must wear socks in the Play Centre. Staff recommend that children participating in the open play sessions who want to use the provided roller skates bring a helmet and knee pads.

Monkey Around Play & Learn Centre
Toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners attending Monkey Around Play & Learn Centre for daycare might wonder whether they're awake or dreaming. Sure, they get to participate in fun educational activities led by qualified staff, such as crafting family trees or staging an outdoor car wash with play vehicles. But … a roller rink? A multilevel play structure that looks like a jungle gym? A 50-foot inflatable obstacle course that ends with a triumphant luge down a mega-slide? Kids might think the place was designed by Santa Claus himself, or the culinary genius who invented peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches.
They're not far off. The family who created the centre came up with the idea while on vacation, after taking shelter from inclement weather at a recreation facility in Granby. They spent countless hours researching different types of facilities and suppliers, and finally decided upon an innovative business model that combined entertainment with learning. The results of their hard work—and insight gained from their own family experiences—are little details that make the place a favourite of both adults and kids. Bathrooms without entry doors prevent germ spreading and finger pinching, and multiple windows in each room allow for an abundance of spirit-lifting natural light. All the exits of the custom-designed play structure lead kids to one central area that allows parents to relax in the snack-bar area while still keeping an eye on their kids.
