Testimonials MakerKids
My son and I both feel grateful for having found MakerKids. There isn’t anything that compares in the GTA.The teaching staff are extremely professional and engaging with all the kids. My son really feels comfortable to ask all kinds of questions and acts like himself. Great space and positive energy. I highly recommend Makerkids to parents of tech savvy kids. Heather

Kids come in here not knowing what they can do and they leave with a phenomenal amount of self-confidence, and capability Rod

My boys flourish here and look forward to it every week. They show social skills improvement and more confidence since coming to MakerKids and finding their “tribe.” Happy children make me a happy and grateful mom. Thanks MakerKids for creating programs for my quirky, “outside the box thinking” boys. Tammy
