Home Learners Play Groups


Home Learner Play Groups offer specialized peer play educational programs once or twice per week in 60 to 90-minute sessions. Each group consists of a maximum of 3 to 4 home learners. Groups are offered for children ages 5 to 7, 8 to 10 or 11 to 12 years old.

Under the guidance of highly trained professionals, the programs are designed to meet the social, peer play and friendship needs of children who are home or distance learners (Self Design, EBUS. Oak and Orca etc.)

Weekly play themes are created around the player’s affinities and are designed to enhance the learners’ peer social, play and friendship needs while participating in these highly engaging play experiences.
