What A Year!

August 22, 2019

July 31 marked Kayla’s Children Centre’s one-year anniversary as the owners of its permanent home at 36 Atkinson Avenue in Thornhill. It’s been quite a year of change and excitement!

Thanks to a $1.2 million grant from York Region, KCC has been beautifully upgraded to make it more than just classrooms and hallways. It’s a special place that’s opening up possibilities for our children like never before, with full accessibility, specialized clinic areas and spaces for adapted recreation.

Earlier this year, our bright, new sign was installed, serving as a beacon of hope for our families and the community.

Building Campaign Update

KCC continues to work tirelessly to complete our $25-million capital campaign. We’ve succeeded in fulfilling our $5 million matching endowment – an incredible achievement that will help sustain the programs and services we provide to our kids and families well into the future.

As our centre grows, we continue to focus on excellence, bringing cutting-edge curriculum, therapies and interventions to our programs. Thanks to the generosity of a lead donor, we are on our way to making the KCC pool a reality not only for our children but for the greater community.
