Finding baby-friendly places to hang out with other moms in Vancouver is not as scarce as one might think. Bring your babies together for these free activities.
Grab a coffee at the Blenz in Wesbrook and stroll across the way to the Welcome Centre. In the first and third Saturday of the month at 11:00 am, children ages 0 to 2 can enjoy 30 minutes of stories and activities. Seating is tight, so come a few minutes early. And with two free hours of parking at the village, you have time to grab something warm and delicious at the Doughgirls Comfort Kitchen and Bakeshop.

Nothing beats a free and quiet atmosphere for a play date. The library’s central location holds daily baby story time events. With change tables on every level and fresh bagels available in the lobby, you could easily spend an afternoon here. The central library is also just a seven-minute stroller walk from Granville, City Centre.

Five places to get fit with baby
Who doesn’t enjoy a good singalong? Meet other moms at one of 19 StrongStart Early Learning Centres operating in elementary schools around the city. Hang out while the kids enjoy games and activities with other children ages 0 to 5 in a classroom setting. Each centre operates slightly different, so try a few to find the right fit. Don’t worry about the schedule either, just drop-in and leave whenever you like. Tip: most classrooms are small, so leave the stroller at home.
Dance, yoga and delicious treats – a real recipe for a great afternoon! Rocky Mountain is hosting a super cool Mom & Tots series that you don’t want to miss. Dance Instructor and Holistic Registered Nutritionist Carla Budd guides the group through wiggles, twirls, and stretches all designed for 0-5 year olds (and their mamma, pappas or caregivers). After you’ve worked up your appetite, you get to finish the session off by making a tasty and nutritious treat.
