1661 Bayview – at Bayview and Fleming Crescent
(between Eglinton and St Clair)
We have an exciting announcement! MakerKids has awarded its first franchise and is going to be opening an amazing new space in Leaside in Toronto (1661 Bayview Ave). Our programs have been selling out and getting tons of demand from the North end of Toronto, so in order to deliver the best possible programming, we knew we needed to open a second location! This is an exciting opportunity for us and our customers. Our company is growing up and we wanted to have a second permanent space. The camps formerly held at the York School at Yonge and St Clair will now be held at MakerKids Leaside.
About the New Space: We were lucky enough to find a gorgeous ground level space in the heart of Leaside, a neighbourhood filled with great shops, cafes and other kids’ activities to explore when your family comes to visit us. With lots of windows providing lots of natural light, parking options, and lots of space, this spot will become our new MakerKids Leaside location filled with great instructors, robotics, and more that you and your kids will come to know and love. We will be running the same programs.
This space is kid and parent-approved. We are a nut-free location — please do not bring nuts to our space.Wondering where to hang out while your child is at MakerKids? Leaside has lots of options. You can find yoga, grocery shopping, salons, a gym, great restaurants and patios, and lots of other great childrens’ activities (Kumon, dance, theatre, art, etc) within walking distance. Nearby, there is a great park!
Getting There: The space is close to public transit and schools, which is great for families who are sending kids on their own. There is convenient access from the Don Valley parkway. The address is 1661 Bayview, at Bayview and Fleming.
Timing of Opening: We have already begun the process of opening and will finish our move in Spring 2019. The kids in our Spring 2019 programs and Summer 2019 camps will be the first to get to experience our new and improved makerspace for kids in Leaside! We have launched an exciting set of camp programs at our new location — you can sign up now!
