Our Lab will not accommodate more than 15 children, so if parents wish to stay we ask that the number of parents be limited. Our location is conveniently located just down the street from 119th and Strang Line, where Target, Best Buy, and many other retail and dining locations. Parents are more than welcome to shop or catch up on errands and come back (on time please!) to retrieve their children.
For the adults that decide to stay, we ask that they limit their involvement to observation only and that they respect our desire for quiet during the entertainment. We understand that this a festive time and conversation with friends is great. We just don't want the "party conversation" to take away from the kids' party experience. We hope you will understand.
