All of our regular Open Doors programs are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak

Kids' & Tween Clubs

This is an after-school program for school-aged children, ages 4-10, and 11-14. Activities are varied, tailored to each age group, and may include crafts, outdoor activity, homework time, fun and fellowship. A healthy snack is provided.

Active Tots

Active Tots is run in partnership with Halton Public Health Program and the Burlington Public Library. Drop in for free play, circle time, stories, and snacks. This program is focused around school readiness and physical literacy.

Calling All Parents

A Public Health Nurse facilitates a drop-in parenting group for parents and guardians with children of all ages. Participants are invited to share ideas for topics and guest speakers so that the material fits their interests. Limited child-minding spots are available during the meeting. The parenting program, “Nobody’s Perfect” is offered through the group once a year. Please note that registration is required for this specific program.

Respite

Our respite program for the families of children with special needs and their siblings is hosted approximately once each month in conjunction with Open Doors. The children receive one-on-one support for the evening while their caregivers take a break.
