Programs & Events


Kids Can Fly operates and supports a number of programs that act as catalysts for positive change during early childhood development.

The Launch Pad is a privately funded program where parents and caregivers can participate with their children. It is FREE and you can drop in Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday between 9:15 A.M. and 11:45 A.M. at Centennial Grand Woodlands School, 41 Ellenson Drive, Brantford. There are a variety of activities for children from infants to 5 years and Debbie Censner, our ECE facilitator, provides music and many other exciting early learning opportunities as well as parent support. The Launch Pad is closed when GEDSB schools are closed.

Roots of Empathy seeks to develop emotional literacy, nurture tolerance and understanding of differences for participating families and community volunteers. Seeds of Empathy has the same approach as Roots of Empathy but is delivered in the preschool class of a child care centre. The staff are trained, rather than an outside instructor, and a baby and parent visit every three weeks.

The Imagination Library offers an amazing opportunity for children to receive free books.

Parachute Program is geared to parents with infants in the critical first year.

Our Storybook Breakfast is a much anticipated annual event that brings such joy to the children in the community.

The Early Childhood Educator Awards has been around since 2003 and is an opportunity to celebrate the dedication and expertise of local early childhood educators.

Other fundraisers and events can be viewed in our News and Events section.
