Learning Day Program operates Monday to Friday here in our Lifelong Learning Centre, offering Life Skills based programming centered on creating experiences for participants to continue learning, growing, and engaging in the community. This program places emphases on reducing social isolation and improving professional and social networks.

Our Learning Day program is person centered, focusing on improving Life Skills and increasing community engagement. Horticulture Therapy & Gardening, Arts & Creative Expression, Health & Wellness, and Employment Readiness are some of the topics covered in Learning Day Program.

The flow of the learning experience may feel a little different as staff and participants take time to clean and sanitize throughout the day and become more acquainted with our “new normal.” More details and information on our updates/health and safety protocols can be found in the 2023 Registration form as well as the FAQ Page attached to this email. As always, you can reach out to us directly with any questions or concerns you may have. 

Registration can be completed by emailing [email protected] Please include:

We look forward to connecting in person!
