Our programs strive to be diverse and inclusive: from staff members to participating children. We are continuously working towards meeting the diverse needs of our community and are always changing and adapting our programs to individuals and families' various needs.
BGC South East is a recreation based program, with staff ratios of 1 staff to every 15 children and is not typically equipped to support complex needs or behaviours in all programs/locations. Possible arrangements for support(s)/ modifications may be available upon request. These supports are dependent/ limited to: the program and staff's training, funding allotments, and the complexity of your child's need. Additional or Enhanced supports (1:1 or support workers) above the 1:15 ratio is not guaranteed.
We urge Parents/Guardians/Caregivers to reach out via phone call OR email to the program site to further discuss the child's needs, options available for their child(ren) and to determine if our programs will be a good fit for the child, prior to registration.
We are happy to also support families in connecting with other local agencies that support children and youth with enhanced needs.
