Explore Curio

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

We are now open!!!!

Curio is a S.T.E.A.M. inspired exploration hub for children.  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

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

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.
