Activities for Kids in the Junction
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up – Pablo Picasso
The Artful Child – 3036 Dundas Street West
The Artful Child gives young kids a safe place to paint and explore their creativity. The business was started in 1962, but was called “The High Park Nursery School” back then. Kids in the Junction will walk into a welcoming environment where they can build, draw, paint or read a book. After the kids settle in, they are able to play with dough, delve into print-making, water-play and more! At the end of the day, the children are all gathered by the piano to enjoy music and treats. The day winds down and the kids are ready to finish their creative journey. Watch your child grow by innovating and creating, while feeling comfortable and accepted being themselves.
MakerKids – 2241 Dundas Street West
MakerKids structures different programs, events, birthday parties, curriculum development and professional development for kids in the Junction.
