Innovative Learning Solutions | Now Open


Innovative Learning Solutions is now open at The Park Centre, opposite Brewed Coffee House. Read a little about their store and philosophy below!

Never greater than in childhood is our capacity for learning. We are now seeing a new wave of research that supports the idea that much of the best possible learning happens through play – when you give children beautiful tools, inspiring objects, things that engage the mind and call to the spirit, magic happens!

Innovative Learning is a local company started by a teacher and two mums. We specialise in gorgeous wooden toys and games that invite natural learning and that are creative, open-ended, multi-age, multi-purpose and FUN! Innovative Learning is for conscious parents and educators who are looking for products that inspire intelligent play for head, heart and hands. Our mission is nurture children who will find solutions to world problems. At the moment, we do this through providing products that really encourage the vital skills that young people need in today’s world - creativity, problem-solving, collaborative learning and interpersonal skills, but we have grand plans for the future.

We are a “try before you buy” store and we encourage adults and children to play gently and respectfully with our products. We have got lots of exciting new initiatives we’ll be starting soon – free activity sessions for children, mini-workshops for parents and lots more! We also have a ‘product of the month’ promotion – check out our featured product on our website, Facebook page or in store and see if you can come up with a new way to play with it. Share your idea on our Facebook page in a comment to enter the draw to win our product of the month.

To stay up to date with all of our exciting developments, follow us on Facebook, join our mailing list or pop into the store and ask for an invitation to our Grand Opening. We are thrilled to be at The Park Centre and look forward to meeting lots of new people and having some fun together.
