Welcome Back! We hope you had a great summer holiday and got to spend lots of time having fun in the sun! All the Buddings staffers were out of town, but now that the vacation is over, we're super excited to welcome back all our buddies, and get back to the serious business of... playing! 

Our theme for the month of August is All About ACTION, exploring ways of moving, things we can do, and all the ways we do them. It's a full-on topic, and we're glad we've got a month to make it magic. 

Our Summer Party - A Family Fun Day - is just around the corner and we hope you'll join us on Aug. 24. Plus, the Fall Season for BLOOM will be starting the next week. If you'd like to enroll, we still have space for 3 - 5 year olds. 

Buddings is open again, with our regular hours, 9am - 7pm, and we look forward to seeing you at the centre soon!

Family Fun Day - Come out and play on Aug. 24!


The pieces are falling into place, and we're really excited to invite you to our Family Fun Day at Jonathan Rogers Park on Aug. 24. We're organizing special activities for kids and families, musical entertainment, facepainting, a bubble contest, and lots more. Hopefully you and your family can make it on Sat. from 1 - 4pm.

We're thrilled to welcome our friends from Aloe Designs and Barefoot Books, and if you'd like some space for a demonstration or activity, email Talia with your interest and suggestion. It's a big park, with lots of space, and we'd love to have you participate. 
Still Spaces Available in the BLOOM for 3 - 5s Fall Program!


Our BLOOM Program is coming into its third season, and there are still spaces available for the Fall Season (September - November).

BLOOM is a specially coordinated program of activities for 3 - 5 year olds, running Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1 - 4pm. The cost for the program is $660, for 40 hours of care per month, and participating buddies attend the classes at least twice a week, with additional hours every month for flexible, anytime scheduling. Find all the details on the BLOOM page of our website.

If your child will be three by the end of November, you can register them for our fall season by contacting Talia for a handbook and payment options. A 50% deposit is required to secure your spot for the 3-month term. 

How Does the Monthly Membership at Buddings Work?


Summer holidays take families out of town, and bring relatives to visit, which may mean you don't need your regular hours, or even any at all. We hope you're having a wonderful holiday, but before you go, please make sure to let us know if you're gone for good, or away for a month or two. 

Member accounts need to be kept active by making a purchase of either hours or Hold My Spot by the first of the month. Even if you're going to be away. Especially if you'll be back in September. Accounts that have not been maintained by the first will be billed $60 to hold the spot and roll unused hours. After two consecutive months of inactivity, the account will be closed. 

As long as we have a spot, we're happy to welcome back our buddies who have left, however, reactivating closed accounts incurs a $120 fee.
