Explore Curio

A S.T.E.A.M. inspired exploration hub

Launching Winter 2020

Curio will be a S.T.E.A.M. inspired exploration hub for children ages 6 months – 9 years of age.  We will be there to support a child’s need to link questions to answers, to create without boundaries, to explore the worlds they want to see.

We are where learning and development are championed alongside play, to give your little ones an experience they will never forget.

Our space is thoughtfully organized into a series of exploration hubs, each with a curated collection of resources designed to promote inquiry based learning while providing children the opportunity for creativity, innovation, collaboration and critical thinking.

Let curious builders’ imagination run wild in a space made up of foam blocks, noodles, hinges, balls, holes, chutes and shapes. This system enables children to transform their environment and design a course all of their own.

Build

Give the creators of tomorrow a chance to literally build the world they want. Utilizing a combination of wooden blocks, animals, dolls, trees and vehicles to create entire cities and landscapes.

Create

It’s time to get messy! Create your masterpiece with spray bottles, squeegees, sponges, brushes and of course all the colours you could think of. With a variety of materials to decorate and local artists wrangling imagination.

Paint

Curious believers can learn by imagining and doing, giving them the chance to play the roles they see every day. Children can learn through imaginative play while working through our mock kitchen, dressing up and slaying dragons, creating puppets shows and shopping in our grocery store.

Believe

Spread throughout Curio will be mini-mountains, soft hills, balance beams, ladders and rock walls – all mimicking a variety of landscapes – showing our curious climbers the value of adventure, exercise and achievement.

Climb

At Curio we will set the stage for successful experimentation with technology. With a variety of hands on learning applications such as robotics, ipads, coding toys and electronics there will be something for everyone to explore.

Tech

See the light. Hear the sounds. Touch the texture. Children are encouraged to explore with their senses using a variety of light installations, musical instruments and tactile objects.

Senses

Giving children the opportunity to explore the world around them, our Wonder Hub celebrates a custom designed hot air balloon concept that will transport children into a world of discovery. Climb the clouds and explore the solar system, cityscapes and prehistoric lands through a variety of telescopes.

Wonder

Splash around in a variety of water play systems for hours of enjoyment and education. Children will embrace basic mathematics and science, while enhancing social skills and cooperation.

Splash

Time to refuel. Take a break from the action and have a healthy snack. We have various treats available for purchase or you can bring your own. Allergies beware! Please be courteous to other guests.

Snack

Our gift shop will feature a curated stock of unique and engaging educational toys and resources to keep the exploring going at home.
