Children’s Programs Ages 5 to 12
Children’s groups meet for 1.5 hours once every two weeks. The group begins with an opening circle and an activity. Activities are designed to help explore and openly discuss emotions and challenges the children may be feeling or provides tools to help cope with intense emotions
Children tend to be energetic in their grief. The Centre has a specially designed program area that provides areas or rooms that the children can safely diffuse some of their physical energy, express themselves creatively, or work through some of their emotions and questions in areas such as a dress up or medical play station.
