Who uses our space?

Monarch Manor Childcare

Our goal is simple, to create the most enriching environment possible through informed choices and thoughtful design. Curriculum – Our emergent play-based curriculum is aligned with both the Early Learning for Every Child Today framework as well as the Ontario Kindergarten curriculum through the use of both structured and child-initiated play activities. It allows children to actively explore their environment and the world around them through a process of learning-based play which is key to developing problem solving, language acquisition, literacy, numeracy, and social, physical, and emotional skills.


Art Party Toronto

At Art Party, our mission is to create a fun and relaxed, communal space for all children and adults – from beginner to advanced level – bringing people together to express their creativity. We strive to unlock the creativity that exists within each and every participant, through a wide range of themed sessions. Painting stimulates our creative and innovative thinking, and we believe in making these advantages accessible to all.

Sunday afternoons at Manor Road UC.

City Dogs

Expectations are high for dogs to be well behaved in high traffic areas such as busy sidewalks, lobbies and elevators. They are expected to be calm and quiet both inside and outside to avoid noise complaints or dirty looks. They need to keep four paws on the ground to avoid muddying clothing of people walking by. And they can’t say hello to every dog and to every person since not everyone is a fan of other dogs (even dogs themselves). It takes a lot of skill to be a good city dog citizen.

At City Dogs Training and Behavior, we find the most motivating ways to train calmness and politeness in your dog at home and on city streets. We delve into the root of unwanted behaviors to address the real issue and achieve the goals needed for your dog to live happily and peacefully in our busy city.

Classes held at Manor Road UC on Tuesdays evenings

Thrive Academy

At Thrive Academy, we help children overcome barriers to learning so that they can feel confident and capable at school. Poor timing can impact many activities throughout the school day. We deliver an innovative program that measures and improves a child’s timing. If your child is experiencing any of the following, you may want to consider a timing assessment:

– Difficulty getting started on homework and other tasks
– Slow to grasp new concepts or formulate thoughts
– Clumsy or uncoordinated
– Trouble getting along with others
– Struggles to keep track of or notice the passage of time
– Has a hard time understanding oral instructions
– Seems overwhelmed by sensory information that doesn’t seem to bother others

Poor timing can affect almost every area of your child’s life. Their struggles can seem overwhelming, but there is hope. Our program is fun, engaging and can quickly produce lasting improvements so that your child can thrive in any environment.
