Arts4all is a Canadian non-profit business that is funded by a sister company, Artshine, a fast-growing social enterprise. Together, Arts4all and Artshine are dedicated to creating and providing art programming to communities, where participation in the arts is not limited by location, age, ability, income, or life circumstances. Arts4All offers sponsored, subsidized, and free programming opportunities to provide inclusive arts experiences for seniors, underprivileged, incarcerated, and at-risk individuals, as well as and people living with disabilities. Artshine’s head office is located in Kitchener, but programming has expanded to offer classes both in-person and online across Canada. A large part of Artshine’s programming takes place in schools, with programs being offered to students during lunchtime and after-school. In addition, Artshine offers summer camps, birthday parties, corporate team building events, adult workshops, and inclusive programs for adults with exceptionalities. In recent years, Artshine started an art box subscription service for kids of kindergarten and elementary school age. To continue with the theme of giving back, Artshine and Arst4all have a “get one, give one” initiative; for every monthly subscription purchased, a child, who otherwise wouldn’t have access, receives a free class.
Chickadee Kids Company is Burlington’s one-stop-shop for families with young children. Our focus is on toys that are powered by imagination, rather than batteries.

At Lil’ Monkeys we wanted to create a meeting place for families and friends focusing on play, movement, and independence. It is more relevant than ever now, that children are moving too little today. As a proud member of the Halton/Hamilton community for over 13 years, our company has seen success through our strong concept of play and movement for the whole family with safety, cleanliness, and service always being our top priority.
We have a unique place where parents can come and enjoy a comfortable atmosphere while their children play freely in a clean, safe and age-appropriate playground that is not only designed for kids but also designed with the parents in mind. From the numerous seating options throughout the facility, complimentary coffee and tea (yearly members only), secure wristband policy, high-speed wifi and numerous Bistro options for lunch or dinner you may lose track of time before you know it. With over 16,000 sq feet of play space, party rooms, redemption center, bungee trampoline, and many other activities there is something for the whole family.
At Lil’ Monkeys we are always looking for new and exciting attractions to bring to the community and as a result of this we are always introducing new additions to the facility.
We also strongly believe in being a part of our community. Over the years we have supported charities, fundraisers, silent auctions, schools, church groups, sports teams and so many more. Many of these are proudly plaque mounted throughout the facility. To date, we have donated over $40,000 back into the community. Many of our current staff grew up in the local area, played on these very teams or attended these schools and now have come full circle be part of our team and support the next generation of kids experiencing the same clubs, schools, teams and churches that they, not so long ago, were a part of themselves.
Hope to see you soon!
