Merlin’s Magic Wand
6th March 2019
LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto excitedly announced the grand opening of the very first Magic Space in Canada making this the 45th Merlin’s Magic Space created globally by the charity.
The Magic Spaces team have waved their magic wand over a dated gym/play area at Silver Creek Pre-School to transform the space into a new LEGOLAND Discovery Centre DUPLO® inspired activity playroom. The new space now provides a safe, vibrant and educational play area for children to experience and enjoy the unique magic of Merlin Entertainments. It will allow them to develop their gross motor skills through physical activity and play. Emmet even made a surprise appearance from LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Toronto to unveil the new Magic Space to the children.
Silver Creek Pre-School opened in 1975 and offers programs tailored to helping children live with their physical and/or developmental challenges, including Down syndrome, Autism, Cerebral palsy, Muscular dystrophy, stroke, heart attack, seizure disorder, communication disorder and other medically complex conditions. The Pre-School supports more than 60 children aged between 18 months to kindergarten age, providing physiotherapy, occupational therapy and a speech and language service.
The Pre-School is committed to helping children discover their abilities and reach their personal goals, offering an environment for learning, laughter and love. This new bespoke play space will help the team fulfil this goal.
Irena Setnik, Executive Director from Silver Creek Pre-school conveyed the gratitude of the children and families on the amazing new space.
