"Excellent place to spark curiosity in making things, science, art, etc as well as shop for unique gifts for kids of all ages (including grown up ones)."

A Friendly Neighbour

Thank you for the newsletter.

I truly enjoyed having some updates; and all the suggestions to honour Black History Month.

I rarely take time to read my emails; but I'm sure glad I decided to read yours. Very inspiring and informative.

I am happy you are in my neighbourhood.

"I’d purchase nearly everything here if I could! You can tell so much thought and consideration are taken to bring in such lovely items! The staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful as well. Just wish I lived a little closer!!"

Happy Neighbour

I am sitting at my desk right now and saw that your email blast just came in. Upon reading it I was struck by just how fortunate I am to have you both and your shop in my neighbourhood and am able to include you in the mechanism for both what I teach my daughter and how she learns.

Thank you so much for sending this out. It was a wholehearted and kind thought that really cut through the rhetoric and noise that tends to drown out reason these days.

So again, thank you!

About us

The Learnary is a non-profit social enterprise dedicated to building community, supporting intergenerational learning, and generating curiosity.

We think the world is a fascinating place with so much potential. We know that no matter our age or the experiences we’ve had, we all have something to learn and something to share. And we are so happy to learn and share with you.

Our model means that all the profits we make in our store or through our activities go back into the organization to support our mandate. This ensures we are not driven by the desire to make money for its own sake, and allows us to build on the incredible ideas and expertise of you, our community.

If you want to learn more or get involved, come by our store or send us an email. We would love to hear from you!

Did you know that we are a non-profit social enterprise?

Income from our shop supports the organization - and makes it possible for us to offer free and low-cost activities for all ages. We are really excited to get back to doing more of this in the new year in a safe, welcoming way.

If you would like to support this work, we do take donations. Unfortunately, we are not a charitable organization, so we can't offer a tax receipt at this time, but your contributions will go directly to our operational costs, allowing us to focus on building our sustainability and this community!
