Children need to climb and run and jump and did I say run… Sometimes Vancouver rain keeps us from being able to be outside for a longer period of time. The community centres are a parents saving grace when the November rains hit. What to do? What to do?
Most of you know I have moderate a facebook group called Families Against Boredom I started the group to invite anyone to post family events in and around Vancouver. Tonight I sat down and went through all the local community centres to find out when they had Tots Gyms (open playtime for children under 5)
