It’s great doing things together as a family, but every so often, parents need to have some time to themselves, to reconnect, run errands, or just relax without kids. The GTA offers a number of parents’ nights out where you can drop your kid off to have their own exciting night out filled with fun and activities. It’s a guiltless way to enjoy some rare free time!

Most kids’ night programs are two to three hours long and end by 8 or 9 pm. Prices range from around $20 to $40 per child, with discounts for siblings.
