It means everything having their support.
A Hub of Excellence & Inclusivity
This World's Ours Centre is distinguished by its commitment to providing professional, quality services all under one roof. Recognizing the unique needs of neurodiverse children and their families, the centre plays host to a diverse group of educators and service providers who offer their expertise in a collaborative environment.
Every Tuesday, the centre offers baby and parent play & learn classes, thoughtfully designed to reflect the principles of RIE and Montessori. These classes are led by educators who are well-versed in the distinctive requirements of neurodiverse children, creating an inclusive & enriching environment.
And they offer a huge range of weekly registered or drop-in programs for school-aged learners aged 5-18, including social groups for sensory play, games club & teens, school support for primary and intermedia grates, physical activity, cooking, music therapy, dungeons & dragons and more! Not to mention their After-School Kids Club which includes a healthy snack, social-emotional check-in, and time to relax with friends while playing games, making art, or getting help with homework. They even pick up children for After-School Kids Club from Nightingale Elementary and Mount Pleasant Elementary.
This World's Ours Centre also extends its services to encompass an array of professionals, including Speech and Language Therapists, Counselors, Psychologists, Physio/ Occupational Therapists, Behavior Consultants, Teachers & Tutors, Music & Art Therapists, Naturopaths, and Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs). The ultimate goal is to provide comprehensive support for children and their families.
At This World's Ours Centre, your child's birthday celebration is thoughtfully structured for maximum enjoyment with a fun Music, Painting, Garden, or Pizza Party theme of your choice!
The festivities begin with a warm "Meet & Greet" session, where the party schedule is introduced. Then a custom-themed "Activity" led by dedicated party leaders engages the kids, fostering creativity & laughter. The excitement continues as everyone gathers around the cake table for singing, candle-blowing, and delicious cake!
Then, the celebration concludes with "Goody Bags & Goodbyes." Children bid farewell, receiving goody bags filled with delightful surprises. It's a memorable ending to a fantastic day at This World's Ours Centre.
