Parent and Child (1-3 years of age) - weekdays
Classes are offered for parents of children as young as 12 months, providing support, advice, and practical tips to maximize learning opportunities for the child, as well as guide the child through his or her developmental milestones. Being a new parent in the world of disability can be overwhelming, and our classes are designed so families can connect and learn from one another and our experienced staff.
Early Intervention Program (3-5 years) - weekdays
The Early Intervention Program runs weekday mornings for children between the ages of 3 and 5. This program is suitable for parents looking for a pre-school program, which actively, cognitively, and socially integrates all aspects of the child’s development. Each day, the conductors and teachers work cohesively in a structured setting offering physical programs, and self-care skills, alongside a kindergarten curriculum. We believe young children learn best in an environment that provides opportunities for exploration, discovery, and hands-on learning to encompass the whole child; therefore, movement is promoted to access activities which assist the development of cognitive abilities.
School-Age Program (5-12 years) - weekdays
The school-age program is suitable for children of elementary school age and runs alongside the academic school year. The program integrates suitable topics and themes to help encourage and motivate the children’s movements, self-awareness, social, and cognitive skills. The program teacher modifies the Ontario Ministry Education curriculum to acommodate each child’s learning needs and styles. Our staff has extensive experience in modifying programs for students with a range of learning needs.
Sessional Services (3-7years, 8-12 years and 12-19 years)
- weekday afternoons and Saturdays in Toronto
Our sessional services run in 10-12 week blocks during the fall, winter and spring. Classes are offered once or twice weekly, during the afternoons, after school hours, and on Saturdays (in Toronto only). Programs vary in length between one to two and a half hours. Staff skillfully integrate mobility, self-care, social, and communication opportunities into the program to promote independence and self-advocacy.
