My daughter and I just discovered this amazing place for kids to explore more, the out of the box way. Thanks to Mommy Joy of occasionsofjoy.com for inviting us! The kids experience during the event was so awesome. My daughter even got to meet new friends too!
What is Sparklelab?
Sparklelab is a safe and inclusive space where all participants are encouraged and supported as they take on roles, assume identities, explore, experiment and collaborate in both the social and creative contexts.
Integral to this are the values of respect, kindness, mutual understanding and accepting and celebrating diversity.

Happiness and Learning at Sparklelab
Sparklelab is a creative space where kids, teens and adults engage in activities of a multidisciplinary character: imagining, creating, reflecting and innovating.
Participants assume various roles and develop skills in areas of design, media, technology and the arts. They develop projects individually and collaboratively, within and across disciplines.
Sparklelab is a connected space where ideas, models, practices, innovations and creations are informed and inspired by, are relevant and meaningful to, and are developed and shared with a wider community whether physical or virtual.
