Daddy Dates: A Science, Art and Building Experience

Father figures have a special role in the life of a child (as do mothers of course), and it's important that we encourage their involvement! Whether you are a parent, grandparent, uncle, or godparent, you are most welcome to join us for a special combined science, art, and building experience in The TransformEd Creative Studio and Learning Centre.

Espresso will be served with some Italian pastries while we get creative and have fun learning together!

Classes will include experiments and hands-on learning opportunities:

  • Science Lab of Art Possibilities
  • Outdoor Science 
  • Kitchen Science
  • Build and Learn Projects
  • +MORE (Music, Sports, Math, etc.)

Nothing is more precious than witnessing the quality time shared between children and their father, grandfather, uncle, etc. A beautiful bond that needs to be encouraged, documented, and celebrated!

Mixed Ages: Infant - 12 years with Parent/Caregiver (All activities will be differentiated according to the age/group registered)


Classes do not require a long commitment, they are pre-scheduled by appointment.  You are able to book one drop in date, or to register for a few and create your own program.  It is recommended to join with a friend and their child, to make this learning opportunity more social!



Monthly Mama Meet Ups: Reconnect and Learn

The TransformEd Creative Studio and Learning Centre specifically designed a program for Mamas who want to socialize with their relatives/friends, but know how hard it is to carve out the time, let alone clean their home, organize the food, setup activities to host it themselves, etc., etc.  Once a month let us do all of the coordinating, planning, setup, and cleanup, while you enjoy the time with your child and relatives/friends.  During our class the children can freely explore our studio space, and we also have some structured group time for stories, songs, and or any relevant discussions.  Mamas will be given a break to eat and have some mindful moments colouring or crafting.

Salad will be served with some fruit while we get creative and have fun learning together!


Don't miss this unique social opportunity to reconnect with the ones you love and witness how your child grows and changes!


Mixed Ages: Infant - 12 years with Parent/Caregiver (All activities will be differentiated according to the age/group registered)


Classes run for six months on the same day of the week/hour.  Each child/parent who registers in this program will know the dates ahead of time.






Igniting Inquiry for School Aged Children

The TransformEd Creative Studio invites all curious minds to participate in a Reggio Emilia inspired emergent curriculum experience that encourages the hundred languages of expression (the many ways they can learn and express themselves) and ignite their creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, questioning, and overall confidence (21st century skills). Beyond books and paper/pencil tasks, your child will have the opportunity to explore around the various spaces (indoor and outdoor) that promote relationship building and inquiry, while interacting with materials such as mirrors, clay, sketch pencils, sand/water, blocks, loose parts, magnets, light table, mud kitchen, various other art supplies, and much more. Based on their interests and wonders, we will begin to document a project of their choosing and study our learning within inquiry meetings. The children will become empowered as active participants and protagonists in their own learning experience. They will essentially form a research team! Each week we will review documentation of what happened prior, engage in hands-on creative learning to dig deeper into our inquiry questions and plan our next session together. Parent(s)/caregiver(s) involvement throughout this planning process will also help us to extend our sessions into the home.


I look forward to bringing this curious group of leaders together and seeing what magic and discoveries unfold!


Please note that the children can take a snack break whenever they feel hungry or relax with a guided yoga break.


Inquiry is a process that cannot be rushed, and as such, it is recommended that you consider signing up for two sessions (12 weeks - three months) to get the most out of this creative experience!
