Ages & Stages


Ages & Stages Program

Our Ages & Stages program is designed to build friendships among children with Down syndrome who are close in age, as well as help create an atmosphere of collaboration among families who are facing the same types of educational, social and familial issues related to the age of their child with Down syndrome.  

Siblings of all ages are welcome to attend Ages and Stages activities.

These play dates are usually:

  • monthly
  • smaller than our all ages activities,
  • an activity which is geared toward children within a certain age range
  • hosted in someone's home or in a community setting (children's museum, playland, park etc.) 

Our current groups are as follows:

  • '14-'16 - for children with Down syndrome born in 2014, 2015 and those yet to be born!
  • '11-'13 - for children with Down syndrome born in 2011, 2012 & 2013. 
  • '08-'10 - for children with Down syndrome born in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
  • '05-'07 - for children with Down syndrome born in 2005, 2006 and 2007. 
  • '02-'04 - for children with Down syndrome born in 2002, 2003 and 2004.
  • '98-'01 - for children with Down syndrome born in 1998, 1999, 2000, & 2001.
