We do have a nursery/cry room where parents can stay with their child.

Do you remember the story of the Legend of the Candy Cane?
One dark November night a stranger rides into a small prairie town. Who is he? Why has he come? The children have a wish, a secret wish. Lucy befriends the newcomer. When he reveals his identity and shares with her the legend of the candy cane, she discovers fulfillment of her wishes and the answer to her town's dreams. Now will she share what she has learned? It's a story that will help families celebrate the mystery and miracle of Christmas―for many Christmases to come.
