Children's Program - Puddle Jumpers

Puddle Jumpers is a group-based supportivekids.jpg care program lead by Christine, our certified Child Life Specialist, for children aged 5 to 13. Each class has therapeutic lesson goals to help your child(ren) cope with a cancer diagnosis. We talk about really tough stuff and then engage in a fun age appropriate themed activity that help improve their understanding of cancer and addresses both their informational and emotional support needs.

Register online or call 519-742-4673 to RSVP your space.

Waterloo: Saturdays 9:00 to 10:30 a.m.
