Our day includes daily circle activity, nutritious lunches and snacks, outdoor play, music, art, adaptive equipment like our snoozlens and soft play areas, computer technologies, stories and free-play. There are also integrated play sessions and more.

     Program Plans are designed using an interdisciplinary approach to early childhood intervention activities. Development skills considered include: play, self-help, fine and gross motor skills, communication, cognition and socialization. We often work in cooperation with physiotherapists, occupational and speech therapists and psychologists. Each individual program is structured to encourage the optimal growth and development of each child.
