Day Treatment Program are right for your child if he/she:

  • Churchill (formerly Delta) Day Treatment supports youth in grades 9 and 10; and
  • Hill Park (formerly Mountain) Day Treatment supports youth from grades 7 to 10
What is the focus of Day Treatment Programs?

The goal of day treatment is to reintegrate the youth successfully into their home school or an alternate school as appropriate.

To do this, we help youth improve their:

  • their social skills;

Client Satisfaction Survey Results, 2018

Mountain – Pleased with the program and didn’t find anything to change – just wish it was available at an earlier age and for a longer length of time. Flexibility within program allowed for a more tailored approach to the child’s needs. We are all included in the process, so that there is a more co-operative approach between home and school. Good communication is maintained, so staff and parents are on the same page, and any issues that arise can be addressed in a beneficial way. Both we as parents and my child were all treated with dignity and respect. Help was available to answer all our questions and come up with creative strategies for situations as they arose. And expectations are reasonable. The balance of pace adapts to the child, and helps decrease the stress and pressure of transitions for my child and on us as parents. We are very grateful for this valuable program.
