Our incredibly popular Travelling Tots program provides toddlers (from 18 months to 4 years of age*) and their caregivers with a unique opportunity to play, explore, and make new friends.
Each week, we travel as a group to a new location in the area to enjoy a different structured activity – from music to gymnastics to swimming to crafts.
All activities are led by a local business, giving you a unique opportunity to scope out and sample the activities available to you in your community.
Each session runs for six weeks, with new classes starting soon! Here’s a list of the programs running across the country:

Why Travelling Tots?
Here are some of our past participants’ favourite things about this one-of-a-kind program (and why we think you’ll love it too!):
- It provides a unique chance to try new activities ‘before you buy’
- Exploring the community is tons of fun – especially while making new friends!
- It’s toddler-focused – something that can be hard to find in a daytime program
- Baby siblings are welcome to tag along!
- No two classes are the same
- It’s (almost!) as much fun for caregivers as it is for tots
- All the freebies!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What if I’m home with a toddler AND a baby? Can my newborn tag along?
A: You bet! Babies are most welcome (at no extra cost), so long as they are comfortable in a bucket seat or baby carrier. Travelling Tots is a great, supportive way to get used to being out and about with both your toddler and newborn at once.
Q: What if I have two toddlers? Can I bring both of them?
A: Absolutely. Families with more than one tot in the program will save 50% off the second registration.
Q: My child is home with a nanny/caregiver. Can they attend together?
A: Yes! Tots may attend with any type of caregiver (parent, grandparent, nanny, etc.) so long as that person can make their way to our various class locations.
Q: When/how do I find out where the classes will be taking place?
A: You will receive a schedule via email, one week prior to our first class.
Q: Can I attend just a few classes?
A: Single sessions are not available. A huge focus of our program is community building, which can only be created when a group is consistent from start to finish.
Q: How many moms are in each class?
A: We aim to keep classes at or below 12 participants to foster a cozy, community feel.
