Friendship Club: Drop-In Program

We are excited to offer a series of engaging and educational theme weeks designed specifically for children in grades 2-8. Each week, our programs will focus on a different social-emotional skill, providing a fun and supportive environment for children to learn and grow. Below is an overview of our themed weeks.

Theme Weeks

JULY 10th: Zones of Regulation

This week we will explore different emotions, the sensations the feelings bring to our bodies & how to manage our emotions in a positive and healthy way through arts and crafts and board games.  

JULY 17th: Non-Verbal Communication

Did you know over 75% of the way we communicate is non-verbal? During this week’s drop-in we will explore different ways to use the body to communicate with the people around us. We’ll practice body language, facial expressions and active listening through a variety of games and activities. 

JULY 24th: Self-Esteem

We are all amazing in our unique ways! This week we will explore what self-esteem is and how we can be our best confident selves through arts and crafts and Show-and-Share! 

JULY 31st: Social Norms

Ever wonder how you’re supposed to follow the “unwritten social rules” in public if no one has told you about them? Rather than figure them out yourself, this week we will use roleplays and imaginative play to practice being on our best behaviour in various social situations.  

AUGUST 7th: Friendship

This week is all about friendship! We’ll be making friendship bracelets, playing games and getting to know each other. If you have a friend you’d like to bring with you, please add them to your registration. 

AUGUST 14th: Making Conversation

How are we supposed to know what to talk about when trying to make new friends? During our final week of Friendship Club, we’ll learn how and what to talk about with potential new friends through games and a tea party!
