Enjoy a relaxing and entertaining afternoon at the theatre while your little ones experience their own theatrical journey with Play Care – our new child-care service for children ages 4-10! While you’re at the show, your kids will enjoy theatre-based enrichment activities along with a delicious and healthy lunch delivered and provided by the Stratford YMCA – all for just $15 per child!
If you have a child between the ages of 4 and 10, you’re eligible to take advantage of Play Care.
In its inaugural season, Play Care will be offered on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 pm. in July, August and September.
The Stratford YMCA, centrally located on 204 Downie Street, Stratford, Ontario N5A 1X4 – just moments away from the Avon Theatre – will host and provide Play Care. There is a municipal parking lot adjacent to the YMCA for your convenience.
Children will enjoy a light lunch and a wide range of theatre-based activities throughout the course of the afternoon – from arts and crafts to reading, and even creating their own theatrical adventure! The YMCA also provides outdoor play in a fenced area so children should dress appropriately. An optional swim-time is facilitated by certified lifeguards, and staff will be in the pool with the children. Please pack a bathing suit and towel if a swim is desired.
The YMCA is a “nut-aware” environment and will endeavour to make the experience as safe as possible for all involved.
Space is limited to 25 children each session. At just $15 per child, this fabulous new service is sure to fill up quickly – so don’t wait to reserve your child’s spot for Play Care! Call a box office representative today, or add the service to your cart when shopping online to enhance your Festival experience.
Play Care must be booked at least 2 business days in advance of your performance date.
