About Smart Moves Play Place™

Smart Moves Play Place™ is a STEM-themed indoor play centre offering drop-in play, children’s parties, educational programming and more. Based on the four tenets of innovation -- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math -- Smart Moves Play Place™ offers a totally unique experience of learning-through-play, delighting and engaging children ages 6 months to 12 years old. 


Why STEM?

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, or, STEM, is the fastest growing and most influential sector of our changing society. Studies show, however, that Canada lags behind other countries in preparing its youth for the STEM-centric world of the future. Many agree that we need to recreate the way we teach, learn, and think about STEM early in the education process.

At Smart Moves Play Place™, STEM is all around us. Each of the four party rooms is uniquely themed with either Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Equipment and activities illustrate STEM concepts like velocity, levitation, and gravity. The halls are decked with local examples of STEM-at-Work and the climbing wall doubles as a periodic table.  Smart Moves Play Place™ provides a clean and healthy environment for children to actively explore STEM through physically, socially, and mentally enriching play.
