You’ll have peace of mind knowing your child(ren) will enjoy the interactive atmosphere of our Child Minding and Kidzone, supervised by our experienced staff.  Drop your child off and attend a fitness class, work out in our Fitness Centre or hit the pool.

They can socialize with other children and play to their heart’s content while you take time to look after yourself.



Book your special day with us!

Make it a day to remember as we spend the afternoon enjoying party games in our decorated party room

and either swimming in the pool or playing sports in the gymnasium.
