City of Toronto Fun Programs
I have never participated in one of these programs, but apparently I live very close to a community centre that offers some fun activities for moms and babies. I signed up for Mom and Baby yoga, and Me & My Baby Playtime. Not knowing how difficult it would be to get in, I signed in this morning at 7am to grab a spot in both classes. I really needn't have bothered. It is now 9am and there are still spaces available in both classes. Not that many, but I figure if you tried at some point today you could get in. Perhaps my community centre is not as well used as others. I've heard stories that you have to log in right away to get a spot, but I didn't seem to have any problem. The website requires you have a family number and a client number to register. Surprisingly, you can't get these online, you have to phone. I did that on Monday, only to be greeted by the most lacklustre telephone operator in the history of the universe. I get that you hate your job, you are tired, and you don't want to talk to people on the phone. But at least put a little bit of enthusiasm in your voice? Don't sound so defeated, I was nice, I only wanted a client number!! I was not calling to complain! I am not sure why one can't do this online as she just took down my name, age and address then gave me my numbers. Anyways, the programs start in April, so I will update on their quality then.
