Henley Heights Activity Guide: Back to School Edition

Summer is officially over, which means it’s time to hit that refresh button and start something new! After a fun-filled summer, it can sometimes be difficult for kids to get back into the swing of things at school. To help them with this transition, it’s advised to keep them busy to have them stay motivated. Living in Henley Heights, you are lucky to be situated amongst a healthy list of kids after-school programs. Continue reading to learn more about some exciting after-school and weekend activities to set them up for a great school year!

After School Programs

Calling all dancers! The Lecky School of Dance wants to help you move your dancin’ feet. Offering a range of classes from Jazz, Ballet, Tap, Hip Hop, and Musical Theatre, Lecky’s has your kids in the hands of professionals! Head over to their website to register while spots are still available.

Ever given the Martial arts a go? Help your child build on their confidence, self-defence, fitness and focus by signing up for classes at Arashi-Do. Take your pick from classes ranging from beginner to advanced levels, just a short drive away from home in Henley Heights. Make sure to give them a call ASAP to reserve a spot!

Lights, camera, action! Think you might have a star on your hands? Help fuel their dreams of performing at the Dance Theatre Performing Arts Centre. Offering dance, singing and acting classes, your child will be exposed to various elements of performing. Classes are kept fairly small to ensure your child has more individual time with instructors to develop their skills.

Stay on top of things and help your kids keep those grades up with Kumon! There’s no better feeling than seeing the smile on your child’s face when they show you an A+ on their latest assignment. Enroll your child now, and prepare for a year of successes!

Weekend Warriors

Weekends are a special time, and are best spent with family and friends… and maybe some healthy competition. Make your next family outing a game of Laser Quest. Whether it’s to celebrate a birthday or just for some family fun, you are guaranteed to have a memorable time! 

Want to keep the adrenaline going? Bounce over to Flip N’ Play for an afternoon spent jumping out all that energy. Let your kids experience the world of trampolines in a safe environment. Get tickets here!

Have younger ones who may not be ready for these activities yet? We’ve found something special for them, and you! Head over to the Hide n Seek Indoor Playground for some play time, while parents hang out in the Orange Tree Café to enjoy a snack and a cup of coffee… or two!
