Buddy Club

Special Needs Playgroup

Saturday afternoons from 1-4pm, starting April 27th @ Good Shepherd Barrhaven. Buddy Club is a weekly special needs playgroup for children. It’s open to kids aged 5-12.

Buddy club provides respite for families and fun for kids. We promote social interaction through crafts, games, story time, sensory activities, snack time and activities. Teen volunteers provide one-on-one attention to children. Adult supervisors oversee the program and provide onsite assistance to ensure safety for all.

Our special needs playgroup meets this season on April 27, May 4, 11 & 25. Please pre-register, since available spaces are limited. We don’t charge money for the service. However, we ask parents to help by providing snacks.

Please contact the church by phone or through using our contact page if would like more information.  We ask for an orientation interview for all new registrations to help answer any questions you may have. The interview also helps you decide if the program is a good fit for your child.

Buddy Club is part of Good Shepherd’s outreach ministry but is a non-religious program open to those of any faith.
