Message from our Executive Director

Hello to all our friends and families,

We hope that you had a wonderful summer and are still enjoying the gorgeous sunshine. Special hugs to new school children and their parents - it is a big change and sometimes hard to manage these transitional moments, but it does get easier!!!

We wanted to let all of you know that we are open and ready for you to join us for some great books, toys and activities. Both floors are open for play time and we encourage you to explore and discover the hidden gems here at The Storefront. Please always feel free to reach out to Michele or Roona with any questions you might have, we are always pleased to help.

We continue to have a mask mandate for all indoor activities: we have N95 and blue surgical masks available free for all adults and reusable fabric masks for children over two (if your child can tolerate a mask).

We do not have a timeline for reopening the kitchen for lunch as we want to ensure the health and safety of the children in our community. We are hopeful that a safe and healthy autumn might help us move in that direction.

Our current hours are
Monday and Friday 9am-230pm 
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9am-3pm  

We will return to extended hours after Thanksgiving (see below)

For the most current and up-to-date information about our hours, check our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram 

We are available by phone if you have questions or just want to chat — don't be shy!! 416 531 8151
