At Home Alone
Does your child spend a few hours home alone before or after school due to your work schedule or other commitments?
The KidProof At Home Alone workshop is provided annually for students ages 10 and older and will prepare your child to look after themselves. The skills that are taught throughout this workshop will help make both you and your child more confident when they are home alone.
People of all ages can ride bicycles and even e-bikes, but do they know the rules of the road? This course covers the required safety equipment, where you can ride, and cycling law.

Children enjoy afternoons of games, crafts, visitors and activities. The fun is supervised by experienced leaders who are trained in HIGH FIVE®and First Aid.
The Hanna and District Youth Club organizes a youth dance four times a year.
