What is the CFEC? A child-centered, cozy "play cafe" to hang out in with your kids.
What is a "play cafe"? A place to play with the added benefit of fun, healthy food and drinks for both you and your child.
What is there to do? We have 3 open-play rooms, porch, deck, and yard, as well as fun classes to take with your kids.
When can I come? Anytime you’d like! We’re open Monday through Friday from 9:15 to 1:00 and Saturdays until 2:00.
Do I have to enroll in a class? No. Our classes and teachers are awesome, but you can also come just to socialize with other parents and let your kids play any time you’d like.
Can I take just a few classes instead of a whole series? Yes. While our series cost is less at typically $10/class, our drop-in fee is still only $12.
What if I enroll my child in a series but we have to miss a class or two? If your child is sick or you have a conflict you are welcome to make it up by trying out another class you might enjoy, just do so before the term ends, please.
Can we just come to play? Yes! Your first visit is free, after that we ask $3 per day or $15 per month. When you choose to purchase a membership open-play is included.
Do I have to have a membership? No, but if you come frequently it makes sense. Our membership levels begin at only $50 for the whole year!
Sounds great! What do I do now? Pop in anytime for play and socialization! Interested in a class? Enroll on our Kids Page or on-site when you arrive.
