Read what other parents are saying about Marpole Oakridge Family Place.
I'm so glad I found this place. The staff is extremely friendly and knew my son's name after the first visit. The family place is very clean and has a great selection of toys, books, dress up clothes, hats, paint supplies, chock and board, baby toys and fresh playdough.
Coffee is fresh brewed everyday for the caregivers and some snacks are provided for the little ones.
Good neighborhood family outreach centre. Monday to Friday drop in program is excellent for parents or caregivers, allowing kids to socialize with other kids. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the centre is moving from its current location to Marine Gateway so may be less accessible for Marpole residents.
