Address: 145 Strachan Ave Toronto, ON
When I visited: June 2015
I attended a kid’s birthday party at the newly opened facility and really enjoyed my experience as a parent. The best part is that all the kids including my daughter loved it. This place rocks!
The Children’s Discover Centre (CDC) is owned by CEO Jeanhy Shim and it is Toronto’s first and only children’s museum designed for kids under 6 years old. The mission is to inspire the youngest children through creative play.
With a toddler, I know that it is important to find an interactive space for my daughter to learn through play and be engaged, and thankfully CDC does the job!
The space is huge with several “discovery zones” including the art hive, boom room (music room), campground, eat street (grocery and play kitchen), first discoveries (shoe-free cushioned space for babies), make-believe (dress-up/acting), mini city (rocks, and bikes), pet vet (veterinary office), storyland (library) and a sago mini pet cafe (picnic area).
All the kids had a fun time at the party and had lots of space to eat in the party room.
They are opened daily from May 24 through September 30th, 2015 from 9:30am – 4:30pm. Admission for a play day pass is $13 for ages 1 +. More info on birthday party rates, 5-day pack and memberships here.
There is limited parking at the moment at the back of the facility with street parking available close to the centre.
This is a pilot project and not a publicly funded space, so hopefully they will receive more sponsors and stay open for the remaining of the year. Please spread the word!
