Weekday Play

Weekday Play programs are a great opportunity for preschoolers (aged 2-4yrs) to explore different activities and interests like music and movement, science and technology, multi-sport, and even cooking!

new motor skills playgroup

We’re offering a new  program, “On The Ball Pediatric Physio & Occupational Therapy Playgroup”, designed and delivered by physiotherapists from On The Ball, focusing on gross motor development.

Join us as we learn and practice strategies to promote physical development through play. On The Ball pediatric physiotherapists work with babies all day long and have many tricks up their sleeve to help your little ones get moving.

Why focus on movement? Because it directly impacts brain development and learning skills! There will be a 10-15 minutes education segment/ question period and 45 minutes of gross motor activities.

For an optional assessment prior to the program please book through reception at the Kanata location.

For more info about our therapists or other programs, visit www.ontheball.ca.

The program runs Feb 7 – March 21, 2023 on Tuesday and Fridays for different age groups. See more details and register below.
