Three months ago ChatterBlock launched a NEW feature that allowed parents to rate and review all of the camps, classes, attractions and businesses that are found on our website. In order to highlight this our team ran a business appreciation program called Best of the Block. The purpose of this was to showcase businesses in and around the city of Calgary. 


We are happy to announce that our users pulled through big time and submitted some absolutely fantastic ratings and reviews.


We know these reviews and ratings will significantly help everyone in the community plan and register for only the best kid friendly activities.


In particular, some parent submitted reviews stood out to us so much that we thought they were worthy of sharing. Please take a look at what these parents had to say.


Bricks 4 Kidz Calgary 



⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 

Our kids first experienced Bricks 4 Kidz classes at their school and have gone on to do summer camps and most recently a birthday party at their Creativity Centre. We are always impressed at the how enthusiastic and helpful the instructors are – it is clear they are passionate about helping kids learn while ensuring they have fun. The kids really like the variety of themes and activities and of course the daily take home. Pricing is comparable to other specialty programs we attend. As parents, it is the one camp we do where they are eager to go in the mornings and disappointed when the week is done. Great job Bricks 4 Kidz!

Kindermusik By Kaelie



⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 

My Husband and I have been taking our Granddaughter to Kindermusik with Kaelie since she was an infant. We have thoroughly enjoyed the program with our Granddaughter, this has been a great way for us to spend time with her one on one in a fun and educational environment. We have seen big changes in our Granddaughter since we started with Kindermusik; she went from being very shy during the class and mostly observing to fully participating and showing off everything she has learned. I think the repeating of certain songs like Hello, Goodbye and the cleaning up song has helped her learn what to expect and eventually to participate with the group when these times start and end. She has even learned some sign language through Kindermusik as well, which is amazing to watch coming from a two year old child. The program as a whole is great!
Her favorite time has always been the Rock & Rest, we are not sure but she loves this part of the class every time.
Our entire experience with Kindermusik and Kaelie has been wonderful, I would highly recommend Kindermusik by Kaelie if you are looking for a great program for children to learn and play and for you to be able to spend some one on one time with them while participating.

Crossings Dance 



⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 

Crossings Dance is an incredible studio that offers high quality dance classes to meet all your little dancers needs and dreams! It is a safe, loving environment that develops and nurtures young dancers, instilling skill, passion, and confidence.
I love that it is a non-competitive studio that encourages every dancer and offers professional caliber training and development.

Mad Science of Southern Alberta 



⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ 

This experience for my twins was fantastic. We began with the junior class 1/2 days when they were younger and then the next two summers we did the full day classes. My kids loved it every time. They found it fun and interesting with hands on experiments and always learning something new with the ever so friendly helpful instructors! Thank you Mad Science!
