February news and events Danforth East / Junction / Monthly News / Programs / Workshops


February 2017

We did it! We made it through January, the darkest month of the year. Usually, it would also be the coldest month, but we broke several heat records again this year. This meant more rainy days and only 48-hours of sunshine instead of the usual 85-hours* in January (yikes). But it’s February now, and January will soon be forgotten, and February is the month of LOVE and the perfect opportunity to treasure the love of friendships and community by getting together for fun programs, workshops and play-dates. Have a look at the below list of upcoming events in February.

Finally, a night out that keeps kids busy and parents happy. Our fun-loving and experienced staff lead a super fun night at oaks ‘n acorns for the children. The night features lots of playtime at the craft table and in the gym, a pizza party, and a fun show (if time permits) enjoyed with hot-air popped popcorn that we make together!

Parents get the chance to have some fun on your own, reconnect with your spouse, and enjoy some great food. Or simply take advantage of a couple of hours of peace and quiet while we entertain, feed, and tire out the kids with fun & games, dancing and a short movie.
