2016 Dx P.A. Day Programs says
Design Exchange provides engaging P.A. Day programs for children ages eight to 13. Located in the heart of Toronto’s financial district, the former Toronto Stock Exchange building offers a unique and inspiring setting for these specialized sessions.

Inspired by Monogram Dinner by Design, on Friday, January 22 children will dream up their own mock-bistro, and design the graphics for the menu, the space's décor, and even new culinary experiences! Plus, we'll have guest chefs on hand to guide us through the process!
