Kayla's Children Centre was founded in May 2017 as a non-profit organization that resulted from the merger of the Zareinu Educational Center of Metropolitan Toronto (founded in 1989) and Project AIM Programs (founded in 2007). Both shared a passionate desire to empower children with special needs to develop life enhancing skills, self-esteem, and confidence. Recognizing their synergies, Zareinu and Project AIM concluded that as a single entity they could be a dream come true for children with special needs and their families, providing everything they require under one roof, year round, in a state-of-the-art facility.
The new space will provide endless opportunities for children with so many different needs and abilities. Aqua Plans is providing full design services for the facility's 1,800 square foot hydrotherapy pool, complete with four large teaching platforms of various depths. This fully accessible pool is being designed to include water features, two swimming lanes and a full tile finish.
