Play is at the heart of children’s learning.
Here at Curio children will be exposed to a variety of play based exhibits; pretend, exploratory, guided and free. Take your time to go at your leisure, playing along side children or give them the space to explore on their own.
“The gift of play is the way it teaches us how to deal with the unexpected” Alison Gopnik, 2016
Our exploration hubs are designed to encourage a variety of ways to play. Work on your own or with a friend to link questions to answers, to create without boundaries, to explore the world you want to see.
It’s said that “it takes a village” to raise a child. Making this project happen will take the support of the community. We are on the hunt for forward thinking companies and individuals who want to play an integral role in supporting children’s learning and development right here in Simcoe County. Reach out to us to see how you can help!
