LIFE ProgramLearning in a Fun Environment
Learning in a Fun Environment (LIFE) is focused on the abilities and needs of the individual. Students can work within small groups and each student has an individual program plan that outlines goals and objectives which are unique and relevant to them. For some students, the end goal is to secure a volunteer position or obtain paid employment in the field of their choice. Students work at their own level and pace, with support and guidance from qualified, experienced teachers with online programs to enhance learning of literacy and numeracy concepts that are relevant to real LIFE scenarios! There is also dedicated time to ensure physical activity.
A qualified Teacher with experience in supporting people with special needs, along with a Job Coach/Job Developer incorporate weekly life-skills workshops, community volunteer placements and outings that support the monthly themes. Each student also has an opportunity to develop their special interests through independent projects via YouTube, presentations or a media outlet of their choice. The LIFE program also hosts community persons that deliver specialty workshops at the request of our students.
In addition, LIFE offers a 7 week long Summer Camp, providing theme weeks with less of an emphasis on academics and more time spent on life skills and building social enterprise for sale to the public and overall FUN! Each week has a special outing, outdoor education day and hot lunch day.
Please note that many of the above programs and services (including our Summer Camp) are not currently being offered due to the ongoing Pandemic. We look forward to welcoming new and old clients back when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, if you require essential respite services, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
