Our after school care program provides a safe, inclusive environment with activities, games, and outside activities. In addition, our program includes snack time, homework assistance, and independent and group play. Under the guidance of certified Responsible Adults and certified Canucks Autism Network (CAN) Autism Awareness for Recreation Leaders, the participants experience the world of S.T.E.A.M., have the opportunity to mentor younger children, and enhance social skills. Our program has small groups sessions to reduce the overstimulation that occurs in larger settings, such as at school and regular programs.
