This week, the children will have the opportunity to learn The Mexican Hat Dance, The Huki Laui and The Limbo! We will also be preparing a tropical feast, Hawaiian-style – it’s going to be a blast, so don’t miss out!

From Canadian Rocky Sundaes to Mexican Quesadillas to Friday Cowboy Roundup Camp Food, this week will satisfy every taste. So bring your aprons and your appetites, and let’s get cookin’ with your friends at Tots Town.

Lab fee: $7 extra

Pirate Days

Rrr, ye mates. Join me, Captain Hook, and the crew for a castaway adventure through the Caribbean. We’ll be surviving the deep blue seas, swabbing decks, walking the plank and hunting for lost treasure in far-away lands. Come on, all you landlubbers, put on your pirate pants and skullcaps to ship off where the seas are wild!

Storybook Theatre

Leave your shoes at the door and step into the world of fantasy play. This week, we will explore the world of the Fine Arts! We will be doing Puppet Theatre, Acting, Singing, Dancing and Special Painting. We will act out a “Storybook Theatre” – starring YOUR KIDS!

Mad Science

This week is loaded with excellent experiments for kids. By the end of each session, the children will learn that science is all around us and is a part of our everyday life. Each day, we will see how things grow and participate in awesome and fun experiments. We guarantee that your children will walk away intrigued by simple science. So come see what’s erupting!

Sports Days

So let the games begin! Put on your runners and get your body a-movin’ ’cause this week is going to be filled with runnin’, cheerin’ and laughin’! We have a motivating week planned with a California kickball Game Tots Town-style, along with cooperation sports games. We will also have team relay races and parachute games. Ribbons are handed out each day to all participants.

Tool Time Workshop

This week, our children will be very busy building, creating and constructing in our Tots Town Workshop. We will be building a Wooden Clothes Hanger and a small Treasure Box. Hammers, nails, paints, wrenches and sandpaper will be supplied to our construction crew. Can we build it? Can we paint it? Can we use it? Yes we can! So put on your “Tool Time” aprons, come along and join the construction crew.
