Most programs will require the use and familiarity with the following programs and technology:

  • Zoom
  • Computer or tablet device with access and use of speakers, microphone and camera
  • Reliable access to internet 
Required Items & Spaces 

To participate in programs, it is recommended that participants find a quiet and well-lit space in their residence. If a program involves gross motor activities, it is recommended that participants find a well-lit space that is free of obstacles.

Some programs may require the use of items from home (for example - a towel to lay on while stretching or a ball to use while mimicking instructor actions) or the purchasing of additional supplies (for example - food items for a cooking workshop). Activity Kits may be provided for specific programs or activities. For programs that require Activity Kits, pick-up dates and instructions will be provided prior the beginning of programs. The cost of Activity Kits will be built into program costs.
Parent/Caregiver Participation & Involvement 

Depending on the type of programming, some virtual programs may require various levels of parent/caregiver participation. Parent/caregiver participation may involve:

  • Active participation in programming (for example - dancing with your child or playing a game).
  • Helping children during program tasks (for example - cutting out shapes for a craft).
  • Motivation and support for children (for example - prompting children to participate or keeping them on task and participating or involved).
It is recommended that there is always a parent/caregiver on-site with participants either in the same space or nearby for supervision and safety.
