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.

We will celebrate each child's unique contribution to the group and what they learned together...saying goodbye for the summer. We will play games and make crafts that will review what we've learned this session about cancer.

There will be no classes running during the summer months.  Individual support with the Child Life Specialist for your child(ren) is available if required. Call for an available appointment. Group classes will resume in September.
