    She noticed the difference between idealabs & other camps already
    Rola T. (Parent)

    I enrolled my daughter for two Idea Labs camps this summer. She is currently finishing the first one which includes cooking and learning different recipes and experimenting with food. The experience with Idealabs has been fantastic since the first time I reached out for additional information till now. They are very professional, they have a solid system in place that takes care of the kids & their safety while keeping parents informed. Their teachers are so friendly, my daughter is always looking forward for the day & happy and upbeat when I pick her up. She also mentioned how respectful kids in her class are and how supportive teachers are. She is 6! And yes she noticed the difference between idealabs & other camps already. Thank you Idealabs pickering for everything you do! We appreciate you. We will be enrolling on more activities for sure ... Read More

    Great programs and excellent teachers
    Maria C. (Parent)

    Great programs and excellent teachers. The campus is fantastic, and Ms. Francis' attention to detail keeps the kids happy and motivated.

    A great addition to the community.
    Ariana MF (Parent)

    We enrolled our five-year old in two weeks of summer camp (Dinosaur camp and Tinker camp half-days). She had such a great time, both weeks, was very engaged, and was thrilled with her instructors and the activities. Drop off and pick up processes were really smooth; overall, I was very impressed with the professionalism and responsiveness of staff. We have another week booked later in the summer (full days this time, on kiddo's request!) and can't wait. A great addition to the community ... Read More

    It was such a great experience!
    Abigail P. (Parent)

    We had my daughter's 7th birthday party at IDEA Lab Kids Pickering at the end of July and it was such a great experience! She picked the cupcake party and I was so impressed that they made the cupcakes from scratch. The instructor walked the kids through each step including measuring each ingredient with a scale. It was very interactive and the kids enjoyed participating in all parts of the baking process including decorating the cupcakes at the end. We ordered pizzas and IDEA Lab Kids provided juice boxes and even trays of treats like chocolate and candies for the kids. Cristina and her team were very professional and friendly and made us all feel so welcome and comfortable for the entire time we were there. I am so glad we chose this place for a birthday party. We will definitely be back! Thanks IDEA Lab Kids Pickering ... Read More

    He's still talking about it and can't wait to come back.
    Joy J. (Parent)

    My son attended a week long program in August. We were really nervous as he hadn't started school yet and has been isolated with the pandemic. The staff were really understanding and accommodating and he loved it. We felt they did such a great job keeping everyone safe and our son was engaged and learned a lot. He's still talking about it and can't wait to come back. Thank you for everything ... Read More

Thanks so much ... Read More

    Idea Labs were great and professional!
    Nino S. (Parent)

    Idea Labs were great and professional! My daughter enjoyed the online kinetic science class so much that she was sad that it was going to end.

I highly recommend Idea Labs for your children ... Read More

    My son literally woke up bright eyed everyday to get started!
    Tammy W. (Parent)

    Makhi was eager to take the Culinary course! He enjoyed making the delicious snacks. He made tasty bruschetta, cheese and chive scones, strawberry shortcake snacks and pizza on skewers. The instructor, Victoria, was so much fun, thorough and patient. Makhi literally woke up bright eyed everyday to get started! He took a lot of pride in serving all of what he created ... Read More

    Wonderful Experience!
    Nakia F. (Parent)

    I enrolled my 9 year old son in the Coding, Programming + Minecraft iCamp. He was a little hesitant at first but it turned out very well. He was engaged the whole time and had so much fun. It was great to see him submerge himself in the class as coding is one of his passions. It was such a wonderful experience he took a second coding camp. The instructor was also great and experienced. She really encouraged the kids and allowed them to express their knowledge of the course ... Read More

    Great Camp Overall! (
    Louanne P. (Parent)

    My son did the Pet Vet Hospital Tour iCamp and the activities were unique and fun. He loved baking dog cookies and making a toy for our cat. He also made blood (platelets, red/white cells, plasma) using assorted candy and oil. Ms. Nadra was fun, kind, patient and attentive. Short dance segments helped break up the 2 hour session. Great camp overall! ... Read More

    Tina Francis, Owner, Idea Lab Kids Pickering
    MBA

    Tina is an experienced business development professional with over 20 years history working in the banking and mortgage industries. An entrepreneur at heart, she wanted to create something innovative, fun and unique for children through advanced S.T.E.A.M education programs. After researching S.T.E.A.M education for her son who has been displaying immense curiosity and advanced learning abilities, she decided to partner with IDEA Lab Kids which is based in the US to open a few locations in the Greater Toronto Area. 

    Tina has a successful track record as a mortgage professional and has been recognized by the Canadian Mortgage Professional Magazine as one of 50 key influential people in the mortgage industry and has been recognized within various publications for her contributions to the mortgage industry. She earned her Executive Master of Business Administration and was the first place recipient of the Small Business Institute’s Experiential Project of the Year International Award in 2018.

    Tina has always prioritized quality in everything that she does and plans to bring that same level of passion to her IDEA Lab Kids franchises along with the help of her team. According to Tina, "kids are learning at lightning speed and as leaders of tomorrow, we need to equip them with the tools and resources to help them explore and feed their curiosity and imagination. IDEA Lab Kids offers a wide variety of cutting edge technology and resources to do just that - from graphic and video design, robotics, 3D printing, engineering, physics in motion, coding, chemistry lab, movie studio, puzzles, logic, cursive and cooking classes and more.”
