Kid’s Corner

About the Children’s Room

When your kids enter the Children’s Room they’ll be greeted with warm smiles and a friendly environment. Children can enjoy watching our aquarium fish, or creating stories in the puppet theatre. Our toddler area is a comfortable space for children to play games, explore, crawl around, read and be read to. For older kids doing homework, there are quiet study areas and computers with filtered Internet access. While your kids are having fun, check out our great selection of parenting books.
