Two New East Toronto Programs for Babies and Tots On the Move

Learn, socialize and have fun with your active ‘older’ babe!

Our Mom & Baby programs are great for those babies in the potted plant stage (you know – you can just put them down somewhere and they stay put) but what if your little one is on the move?

After being asked countless times when East Toronto would get its own Mini Movers and Travelling Tots programs going – like the awesome ones in West Toronto and Midtown – they’re finally here – and we’re so excited about it!

ur Mini Movers and Travelling Tots programs give you a chance to learn, have fun and socialize with your busy babe. The programs are designed especially for busy babes and provides a great opportunity to get out and have fun during this (busy!) phase of parenthood.

We meet once a week at a different East Toronto location for an hour of fun. You’ll get to try an array of activities that your busy little one will love– music, crafts, swimming, and more – followed by a chance for both babes and moms to mix and mingle. Of course, every session includes a free mom & baby professional photo shoot to capture this fun stage.

Mini Movers:

The days of chatting with other moms while your baby lies quietly on a blanket may be over – but it doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. If your baby crawls, scoots, or is starting to walk, listen up because we now have a program for that!

Our first six-week Mini Mover session begins on Tuesday, April 9 from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. and space is filling up fast! Full information and a link to register can be found here.

Travelling Tots:

Same thing, different age group! Our Travelling Tots are a little older, from 18 months to 4 years of age. It’s a great way to get out if you have more than one kid in your charge (and, yes, there’s a sibling discount!) and take part in a variety of local activities.

Our first Travelling Tots program starts on Monday, April 15 from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. Read more and register here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How old should my baby be when I register?

A: This program is for crawlers and early walkers – we find it best suited to babies from about 6 to 18 months, but this is a loose guideline.
