Boredom Buster Jar

Here is a great boredom busting activity that will give kids a feeling of empowerment by being able to make choices in their daily activities instead of being told. The added benefit: a sense of accomplishment once they have completed the activities.  Cut out the pictures and sort the activities by category. Fill an empty jar or container with 1 or 2 activity options and label the jar with the category picture for reference. Then have your child choose an activity from the jar. Feel free to exclude any activities you don’t want them to engage in. You may choose to have a second jar of reinforcers. After your child completes the activities they can choose a rewarding treat/activity. We've [...]

Earth Day 2020

April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, a day dedicated to stoping climate change and learning ways to protect the environment. For KCC's Grade 2-4 class, this day fits into one of the BRANCHES OF SCIENCE they've been studying all year. Can you guess which one? That's right, ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE, defined in class as the study of the EARTH and what we can do to take care of it. Earlier this year, grade 2-4 students started a school-wide recycling project. The goal was to learn all about recycling and develop a recycling program to teach the staff and students about the importance of recycling and then [...]

KCC’s Response to the COVID-19 Crisis

March 31, 2020 The COVID-19 crisis has been the single greatest challenge Kayla's Children Centre has ever faced in serving children with special needs and who are medically fragile. The complete removal of, or lack of access to KCC’s services would have been detrimental to many families. Fortunately, the organization has been deemed an essential workplace and can continue to operate under legislated exemptions to support families and help mitigate risk, setbacks and loss of skills as a result of the school and therapy clinic closure. Most students continue to learn and receive therapy virtually, through Google Classrooms, Zoom lessons, and telehealth sessions. There are some who are not [...]

COVID-19 UPDATE

UPDATE: June 1, 2020  At our townhall meeting I said I’d wait for mid July to decide on overnight retreat. I truly held onto a shred of hope that since we only take up a small number of campers and since we aren’t really an overnight camp, we’d find some creative way to make it happen in some shape or form. We toyed with the idea of a shorter trip, less kids, lots of restrictions. We spoke to family camps that opened and then it hit us. Click here to read the full letter. UPDATE: June 8, 2020  Ever since our announcement last week about Summer Camp [...]
