How do I participate in Creating Together programs?
At your first visit, you will be asked to fill out a registration form and provide basic contact information. To maintain your membership, parents and caregivers must sign-in at every visit.
There is no fee to register.
Creating Together is a public place. All parents/caregivers are encouraged to help keep the centre tidy, by picking up after their children and ensuring that the books, toys and equipment are not willfully destroyed. We also encourage all participants to show respect and sensitivity to the needs of others.
When families register with Creating Together, they become a member of the organization and are eligible to vote in annual elections for the Board of Directors. Click here to learn more about the Board and how to get involved.
What documents do I need in order to register at Creating Together?
You only need to provide us with your name, address, telephone number, emergency contact information, and the name of your child or children.
Can my child play at Creating Together while I run errands?
No – parents and caregivers must stay with their children throughout their visit and are responsible for the activities, supervision and safety. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate in activities that are going on during program hours.
We do offer a Parent Relief service on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1:00am to 2:00pm. The service provides free on-site child care for children 0 to 6 years of age who are already familiar with the centre and staff. Families can receive up to TWO free relief sessions per month, based on availability. Creating Together Members can book parent relief in person or by phone at (416) 537-1004.
Is food provided?
Creating Together provides a healthy snack for children every morning. You are welcome to bring your own snacks and lunches; we have a full kitchen in which you may heat up your food. Please note that no nut products are permitted at Creating Together.
