Please pick the session that might be BEST suited to your child or client as opposed to the preferred time. Should we feel the needs of your client or child would be better met in a different session, Holland Bloorview reserves the right to transfer your client or child to the appropriate session.

Sunday

Please note that regardless of the type of session, all sessions are still ‘quiet’ sessions i.e. no excessive splashing, using flippers/snorkels,  jumping into pool from the side, or swimming pool lengths. We ask all caregivers to be mindful of the need to help maintain a quiet and calming atmosphere for the enjoyment of all participants.

Relaxation (0 - 13 yrs.)  Ideal for children who are medically fragile with respiratory issues; or have a low tolerance for high levels of activity/stimulation and therefore require a quieter pool environment with less vocalization and splashing.   This session is appropriate for children  0 – 13 years.   1:1 support in the water is required. Siblings welcome but must also have an adult one-to-one in pool and pay a fee.
