Covid-19 Plan:

*Update November 19th/2020:
As we continue to respond to updates and take immediate action, we have made the very difficult decision to suspend in person programming for the next two weeks. This will include Yoga, Dance, Art and other fitness classes. We want to make sure we are doing everything possible as a community facility to ensure the safety and well-being of the community. We will continue to monitor updates with hopes that we can safely return to these programs after this short two week break to complete the remaining classes in the session.

Please note this is in part to help reduce numbers in the building and allow for daily childcare to continue with increased policies and procedures. If you are attending programming with Pacific Heart Childcare or Storyoga Preschool please refer to their policy & procedure updates directly.

As a family run community facility this is an extremely challenging decision to make and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this together. We ask that you kindly give us time to formulate a plan on how we can address credits for the classes that will be missed. We will be in touch over the coming weeks as we learn more.

During this time we will be continuing the creation and shipping of art kits, including contactless drive-through pickup.

We very much appreciate your support and look forward to having you join us again soon. Please let us know if you have any questions and we would be happy to assist.

From our family to yours, we wish you well.
