Brought to you in partnership with Life With A Baby and EarlyON Child and Family Centre Thornhill.

Our Spring Break Makerspace Week events are designed to help you and your child fully celebrate Spring Break while developing your child's creativity, imagination, early literacy and social skills. Spring Break Makerspace events provide spaces where families can gather to create, invent, and learn.

Spring Break Makerspace: Dance!

We're launching our Spring Break Makerspace events with a bang! If you attended our seasonal celebration "It Takes a Village" in December, you'll undoubtedly remember our very special guest, educator and community animator Alan Faigal (see Alan's biography below).

Alan captured families' attention in December and we're once again welcoming him to our Spring Break Makerspace: Dance! event which will focus on the many benefits that dance can bring your child. Dance can help build coordination, muscle control, balance, spatial awareness, listening and understanding skills, literacy and language skills, physical fitness...and much more! Are you ready move with us?

Please note the zoom link will be sent you with your confirmation email and again in your reminder email.

Note: To participate, you must have access to the internet and the most current version of Zoom.
