Awesome Escape Rooms 4 Kids

was developed to help prepare children for their future success in school, early work experiences and beyond.

Based on years of research and program development, the escape room program helps build targeted skills and resilience in children.

Children learn to simplify complex strategies and identify unique solutions by building and escaping rooms that challenge assumptions, engage, and surprise.

School Escape Day Leaders - Divine, Felix, Yasmine and sometimes Elizabeth, have experience leading children and enjoy sharing their interest in puzzles and riddles. They are attending university for social work, computer science and linguistics.


Drs. Elizabeth Smailes + Jay Cross

have been teaching core competency skills, also known as soft business skills, since 1994. Prior to 2017, they taught these skills in university courses and business workshops. Recognizing that soft business skills, particularly self-organizing team skills, could be taught to school-aged children and benefit students at school, Elizabeth and Jay launched Awesome Escape Rooms 4 Kids. They collaborated with teachers to adjust the skills to be age-appropriate. They have been running within and after-school programs in schools across the lower mainland since 2017 and online across Western Canada since 2020.
