Clubhouse opens its doors

The NONA Child Development Centre Foord Clubhouse opened its doors to NONA’s autism program in June, but on Friday there will be an official grand opening for the general public to stop by and check out the new facility.

The centre is dedicated to the Foord family, which has been supporters of NONA for more than 40 years.

Helen Armstrong, executive director NONA Child Development Centre said the move was a very emotional and exciting time for everyone involved.

The 9,800-square-foot building is a three-story facility that includes a learning kitchen, activity room, family room and nine therapy rooms. The purpose-built space also includes one-way mirrors, which were not available at the former location, to help professionals consult on service design and delivery to help parents learn and observe interactions and progress of their child or youth.

“We’re really excited to be in the Foord Clubhouse and grateful to the community for donating to NONA. The additional space will help us reduce our waitlist now and in the future,” said Armstrong.

The official grand opening will take place from 4-7 p.m.
