Our Story

Hive5 kids were founded in 2018 by two passionate scientists/artists friends who had a dream to make an open area for children to learn the elaborate concept of science as enjoyable as doing art. They started their business as a mobile center and held different weekend workshops in Art, science, and engineering under the ArTS workshop series. In 2019 the new Hive5 was born in Aurora as an after-school Art class.  In 2021 during the Ontario shut down Hive5’s innovative center for kids opened at a 2000-square-foot center in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada.

Unleash Your Child’s creativity with Hive5 STEAM-based activities

Hive5 is where the little bees arrive and produce honey in 5 different areas of STEAM. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. These 5 areas of STEAM are critical to the future success of the young generation as the core concept of future jobs is rooted in the 5 skills of STEAM education. 

STEAM is based on the idea of educating students in five specific disciplines in an interdisciplinary and applied approach rather than teaching the 5 disciplines as unrelated and separate subjects. It is a cohesive learning model based on real-world applications.
