Calgary, Alberta

TimberNook of Greater Calgary operates out of Edworthy Park, right in the heart of Calgary. We have found a cozy corner of the park with a spring running through it and giant trees to inspire all sorts of magical play experiences, with ducks and deer coming to visit, and birds nesting close by. We celebrate 'near-by nature,' and strive to make our programs accessible to busy families.

Overview

TimberNook of Greater Calgary offers unique, sensory-rich play experiences for children ages 0-9. We provide year-round programs for Tiny Ones (age 0-4) and Little Wild Ones (ages 4-9), as well as multiple summer camp options! We have top-notch, professional staff delivering quality programs. Being a small organization, we welcome your family into ours, and do our very best to go above and beyond with our customer service, communication, follow-up, and care for your children.
