Starting in 2014, an annual $85 momstown program pass qualifies for Canada’s Children’s Arts Tax Credit.
What's included in my program pass?
All our programming is themed around momstown's Educational Program Pillars and our whole child philosophy: Art, Music, Literacy, Nutrition, Science & Discovery, Fitness & Adventure, Play & Social. momstown also offers programs just for moms in our Moms Night Out and Prenatal program pillars.
From our program pillars, we've developed programs that address all ages and stages, incorporating an early learning focus in everything we do. The foundation of momstown programming is in the Top 12 programs that you will see across every chapter:
