COVID-19, Summer and Fall Programming

First off, we would like to thank everyone for their continued interest and follow-ups regarding our programming. As we are sure many are currently aware, the situation regarding COVID-19 is continually developing. We would like to address some common inquiries that have come our way in recent weeks:

When will Create With Kirshy open to the public? This will depend entirely on the mandates of the Federal and Provincial Governments. We are considered a non-essential business (along with other extra-curricular program providers) during the COVD-19 crisis and as such, we are making an effort to stay as up to date as possible with regards to announcements about when restrictions will be lifted. As such, we cannot say at this time when we will be opening, particularly since public schools in Ontario have had their closures extended through the end of May. We will certainly keep everyone posted, as we are just as eager to open but at the same time, recognize and respect that flattening the curve of the spread of COVID-19 is of utmost importance.

What about the Summer Camp Free Enrollment Draw? Under the circumstances, we have decided to postpone the draw tentatively to June 30, 2020, specifically due to the fact that we are not yet certain as to whether we will be allowed to open in time for dates outlined on our website. The draw was initially posted in late February, prior to the spread of COVID-19 and resulting closures and much has changed since then. It is uncertain at this time whether the camps will run for the aforementioned reasons, but in the event of cancellation, we will still offer free enrollment to the winner for a later program of their choice, once we are up and running. 

Will you be taking registration for the Fall?We are hopeful that the coming weeks will serve as an indication of things to come and with the gradual lifting of restrictions, we are aiming to open our Fall registration (again, tentatively) by mid-Summer (or end of July). If you have any program suggestions are inquiries, do not hesitate to reach out. 

As outlined previously, we urge everyone to continue prioritizing your health, safety, and overall well being, but should you wish to reach us, feel free to call 416-258-1016 or email

Be well, and stay safe!
