Choose Hive5 – Where Learning is an Adventure and Every Child is a Star!

Embark on the journey of Hive5, a vision brought to life in 2018 by two passionate scientist/artists. Originally a mobile center conducting weekend workshops under the ArTS series, Hive5 evolved into an after-school and art class in Aurora by 2019. In 2021, during the Ontario shutdown, the dream expanded into a 2000-square-foot innovative center in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada.

Today, Hive5 stands as a spacious indoor/outdoor property designed for five different STEAM concepts. Upon entering, you’re greeted by a gallery of vibrant paintings, unique projects, and inventions adorning the halls and classrooms. Active classrooms buzz with interdisciplinary projects, group presentations, intense brainstorming sessions, and artists immersed in their craft.

Our founders envisioned Hive5 as more than a learning center; it’s a place where big brains and passionate individuals come together to prepare today’s kids for a bright future. Join us on this exciting journey that started with a dream and continues to thrive with the enthusiasm of our dedicated team.

Why Us:

Hive5 is not just a place for learning and fun; it’s a sanctuary for developing social skills, embracing mistakes, and enjoying the learning process. We focus on the journey, making every step engaging and enjoyable, not just the end result.
