Now Registering…”Out of the Box” – Weekday Sessions


 Nova’s Ark is excited to be able to offer weekday programming aimed at our special friends who are no longer in a traditional school setting.  Programs run Monday to Thursday during the school year from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.   For everyone’s busy lifestyles and to maximize flexibility we offer multi-week sessions where families can register from 1 day/week to as many as 4 days/week. 


We are proud of our respectful, caring environment where acceptance and understanding are the keys to everyone’s positive experience. While our traditional and non-traditional therapy animals provide the springboard for many up close and personal hands on experiences, the animals are just the beginning of a unique social skills experience. The sensory stimulation and language/communication development successfully occurs through the close bonds with our creative and passionate staff Utilizing special education strategies, our staff supports accommodations and modifications to enhance life skills and practical academics through a wide range of daily activities.

Farewell to our Summer College Co-op Team…


Nova’s Ark is truly thankful and appreciative of the summer Co-op Education students from both Durham and Humber Colleges.  These 11 students from the Social Service Worker, Child and Youth Worker and Early Childhood Education programs connected well with our Nova’s Ark Facilitators sharing their passion and training to provide a unique and memorable Summer Program.  What a wonderful summer we’ve had!

We look forward to a continued partnership with Durham and Humber Colleges throughout the coming year.
