Families from all over the Ottawa area have been going bananas for Monkey Around since its establishment in 2012, and it’s no mystery as to why! With a large play centre that offers a play structure, jumping pillow, roller rink, and games to keep children of all ages entertained, as well as a learn centre with full-time daycare programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged children, Monkey Around has something for everyone. Family-owned and operated, Monkey Around is the best spot in the city for children and families to play and learn together!
How We Started
We began planning this project after visiting a family entertainment centre in Granby. We were on a family vacation and the weather was not cooperating to say the least. We found a play centre and our kids had a blast in their structure. The centre had pictures of the construction up on their wall and it inspired us.
We spent so many hours doing research on the internet on the different structures, suppliers, and demographics of our area. One of the suppliers put us in touch with a consulting firm called Camp Iliff. Their business model was an innovative approach with a Family Entertainment Centre combined with a Learning Centre. That is when it all started.
There Are Three Parts To Our Philosophy!
With children of our own, we know how parents worry about the safety of their own children. We want an environment where every precaution is taken to make sure that kids who want to play can without their parents.
2. CleanlinessOur place has to be clean enough that parents will notice.
3. Customer Service
We want everyone who walks through our doors to feel special. Our customers will be treated with respect. Kids will be excited with all of the activities in our centre.
We want Monkey Around Play and Learn Centre to be the benchmark by which all other facilities are measured, and we will strive to give 100% of ourselves all the time. We will do everything we can to provide the best care for the children and the best environment for the families that use our centre. We expect every employee to treat our customers with respect. As owners, we will listen to our customers and be available for feedback.
