The “It’s O-Fish-Al” party theme and decorations were very nice and everyone could tell the kids loved the pre-organized games, arts and crafts and of course the entertaining puppet show!! Mom’s and Dad’s alike asked us how we found such a great location for a birthday party.

The facilitators managed to keep 12 boys ages 4 to 10 years, with 4 on the autism spectrum, engaged throughout. All of them had the ability to talk to the kids at an appropriate level yet still keep it informative and interesting. The parents of the children were all impressed by your facility as well. I will be recommending the FRDC to my friends from around the lower mainland (and have already). You are another reason why I am proud to live in New Westminster.
