Children’s Discovery Centre Toronto

Children's Discovery Centre Toronto is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to making our city more child and family friendly. In 2015/16, we ran a 14-month pilot project called Children's Discovery Centre - Toronto's first and only children's museum, and based on its success, we are working on opening a permanent location in Toronto! Our guiding philosophy is rooted in the belief that free, unstructured play is the best way for kids to learn - whether it's indoors or outdoors. Our permanent Children's Discovery Centre is still several years away, so in the interim, our team is hoping to bring Adventure Playground pop-ups in local parks in 2018 to encourage children to come out and play. Adventure Playgrounds bring life to existing under-used parks and open spaces by introducing a wide variety of natural materials, upcycled loose parts, tools, and odds and ends that create endless opportunities for children to explore, test, discover and learn through play. Children decide what they want to do and plan how they will do it.
