Creative Kids Place engages exploring minds aged 2–12 in its colourful arts-and-play centre through drop-in sessions, summer camps, holiday camps, birthday parties, and special programs. During drop-in sessions, children can stuff teddy bears, paint T-shirts, or string beads of bracelets as preschoolers and toddlers bond with their parents over creatively minded toys or frolic in costume in the dress-up area. Creative Kids Place provides all needed craft supplies, paints, and play activities, and changes its crafts weekly to ensure children don't steal the company's secrets and start their own franchises. March break camps provide children from 4–12 years with an opportunity to spend time with a variety of crafts over March break, and all camps include either a bowling or a mini-golf outing.
When not playing, parents use free WiFi or lounge on the centre's couches amid bright red and green walls and tables draped in decorative tarps. Alternatively, crafters can choose from an array of sculpted, three-dimensional pottery canvases including penguins, dinosaurs, unicorns, princesses, and more. After wee artists paint their pieces to express colour appreciation or camouflage them from envious stuffed animals, staff fires completed sculptures in an on-site kiln.
At R3 Evolution Fitness Studio, owner Crystal Mallari and her team of fitness professionals are concerned with strengthening the mind and spirit as much as the body, and their classes reflect that. Exercisers can sign up for intense classes such as boxing boot camp, meditative classes such as Pilates or yoga, or fun classes such as Bellyfit, which is a dance fitness workout for women. Complementing matters, Mallari, who holds certifications for several fitness disciplines, is also a precision nutrition coach, meaning she can inform clients on what to eat and where to send thank you cards to the Green Giant.
The team at VIP Dance Planet transform young dancers into proficient hip-hop, jazz, ballet, and contemporary artists. Classes such as house, popping, and breakdancing highlight street dancing, while musical-theater dance class covers acting, jazz technique, and how to sprout Bernadette Peters-esque red curls. Dancers of all ages who want to shore up their fitness levels can enroll in an exercise-based class, such as Zumba or Pilates.
Dr. Justin Guy believes in his own rehabilitative power for one simple reason: he's gone through the same treatments himself. After a gruesome injury on the soccer pitch and subsequent failed surgery left him with severe knee damage, Dr. Guy turned to treatments within his own field of study to reduce his pain and reorder his joint. Through this blend of chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, and custom orthotic care, Dr. Guy made a full recovery. Now, from the comfort of his Oakville office, he provides patients with the same care and kindness that helped him recapture his own mobility.
