TRIPLE S: Smartie Social Skills

Run by: Alyssa Catzman and Emily Pike


Smartie Social Skills is aimed at helping children develop pro-social skills and emotional awareness while socializing and exploring in the Smartiepants studio. The children will work on regulating emotions, identifying common peer conflicts, and their problem-solving skills. The group will use play-based, role-play, and real life scenarios to help practice the skills they learn. This group is not intended for children who have significant difficulties interacting with peers- it is a time for kids to learn how to play nicely and have fun! 


You have a Triple S grad on your hands! It’s time to practice all of the skills learned in the Triple S foundations course. Your children will be given the opportunity to apply their self-regulation skills, hone their communication skills, and build their self-confidence in a safe, structured, and closely monitored environment. Through various purposeful, play-based activities, games, and crafts, s/he will be able to implement the new tools that they have acquired with immediate feedback and support from the Triple S instructors. The experiential quality of the group will allow for real-life interactions, conflicts, and problem solving.

How do I know if my program is in the Smartiepants Studio or the SmartieLoft?

Check the schedules for the current session to see when your program is being held.

Where is the nearest parking?

There is always paid street parking on both sides of Eglinton Avenue. After 10:00am there is free 1-hour side street parking on many of the streets surrounding Smartiepants. Using the Green P app, our code is 6130. To discount your parking using the Green P app, click 'discount' and type in 'Crosstown.'

Where do I park my stroller?

If your program is being run in the Smartiepants Studio - a maximum of 8 strollers can be parked in front of our window (not blocking the sidewalk/doorway). In the event that the front is too full, strollers must be parked at our backdoor entrance (enter from the laneway).

If your program is being run in the SmartieLoft - all strollers must be parked at the back of Smartiepants. You can leave your stroller along the railing, and can use a stroller lock if you would like.

Also, please bring your stroller protectors when it is raining or snowing for extra protection.

Is Smartiepants a nut-free facility?

Yes. Please do not bring anything that contains any nuts/traces of nuts.

Which door do I use to enter Smartiepants?

To enter the Smartiepants Studio (ground floor), you may use both the front and back doors. Our front door is located at 1136 Eglinton Avenue West. Our back door can be found by walking through the laneway behind Smartiepants - you will see a white door with a Smartiepants logo on it. Ring the doorbell to enter.

To enter the SmartieLoft (second floor), we advise you to use the backdoor entrance that can also be found by walking through the laneway behind Smartiepants. The door to the SmartieLoft is to the LEFT of the Smartiepants Studio back door. You will walk up 5 steps, walk down the corridor and ring the doorbell at the SmartieLoft door.

If you choose to use a door on Eglinton to access the SmartieLoft, the door is located in the front walkway at 1138 Eglinton Avenue West (Baygin Tailors). You will see a SmartieLoft logo / arrow to follow.
