Upcoming Events & Programs in the Windsor/Essex Community


Upcoming Events

Join us for our monthly playgroup, Wednesday, Jan 24th, 2018.

Our playgroups are a super fun way for children and parents to socialize. With a focus on ease and convenience the groups are open to individuals with Down syndrome from the ages of 0-12 and their siblings. Our goal is to create a fully inclusive environment that fosters relationship building among all the children in a stimulating and welcoming space. The child care space is fully equipped with a preschool room filled with everything a child would need to keep busy. They have access to crafts, sensory activities, lots of centres for imaginary play, hands on manipulatives and a Snoezelen room. A team of qualified college/university student volunteers come prepared with activities and are eager to spend time with the children. It is because of the volunteers that parents have the option to, either stay with their children and play, or go sit with other parents and connect.
