Windarring’s Youth Program
School Holidays, we take our clients into the community to develop their social skills and to make connections with others. This will include, swimming, bowling, cooking, Bendigo outings, Ballarat Wildlife Park, Vaughn Springs and many more exciting activities happening!
It has been very exciting and rewarding programming Windarring’s Youth Program, as we have been very blessed with new staff working over all our sites and our new client intake is growing more and more.
We have been advertising our programs in local school’s newsletters and local newspapers, more families are hearing about our program which is fantastic.
I have also had positive feedback from families about our social media posts and stories!
The Windarring support staff ensure that all clients are empowered and have full choice and control of what goes on in their day. We are always on the lookout to try new things with our clients. We always try to implement each client’s interest’s and hobbies into each program we offer. It has been such a pleasure dealing with our beautiful families on a daily basis and having their input and suggestions.
Windarring offered support during the COVID-19 lockdowns when schools had closed. It was fantastic to see all their beautiful smiles in the centre! There were plenty of fun and creative activities happening.
We cannot wait to see what 2022 has in store for our Youth Program and our client growth!
