FAQ

What is Toddler Games Ottawa?
Toddler Games Ottawa is a Non-Profit, sports-centered, drop-in playgroup designed for children 1-4 years old. Created by parents and part owners of Archery Games, we hope your children enjoy the space as much as ours do.

Is it safe to play?

Yes! Your child will love the open green space and age appropriate toys. The play area is fenced in and turf lined to cushion falls. Best part, no climbing jungle gyms for you…or your wobbly toddler! Please help keep our space safe by watching out for little ones, even if they aren’t yours. It takes a village.

Dangerous behaviour will not be tolerated and the child will be asked to sit out for a break.

Please email us at contact@toddlergames.ca for a copy of our release waiver.

Why is there a cost?

As a non-profit, we largely rely on donations. Currently we have not received any outside funding and we are financing this project ourselves. The entrance fee goes towards basic overhead and supplies.

 

How long is each session?
Each session is 2 hours long. As a drop-in, you have the flexibility to come and go whenever you want.

 

Is there an age restriction?
The recommended age is 1-4 years old.

Can I drop my child off?

No. Parents and caregivers are expected to stay. The amount of interaction/participation will depend on your child. There is plenty of seating with a clear view of the play space if you have an independent child.

 

What should I wear?
A pair of clean athletic indoor shoes or socks is required to enter the arena. The Archery Games arena is outfitted with high grade sports turf and we reserve the right to refuse footwear which may damage the arena (refunds will be issued).

Dress your child in layers to avoid overheating.

 

Can I bring our own food/drink?
Yes, definitely feel free to bring your own food and drinks to enjoy in the lobby area. Although we are not officially a nut-free facility, we ask you refrain from bringing in nut products during playgroup time. There is no food or drink permitted inside the arena.

 

What if I am running late?
Come anyways! It’s a drop-in so you can come whenever you are able to get the kids ready. If you are really running late, the last half hour is only $1 per child (11:00am-11:30am).

 

I would like to hold a Private event. Can you accommodate?
It will depend on the date and time. Since we host Toddler Games inside of Archery Games, most popular times will not be possible. For any special or private event, please contact us.
