COVID-19 CLINIC UPDATE

March 17, 2020


Dear families,


Based on the recommendations from the Government of Canada to practice social distancing, limit gatherings, and to stay home as much as possible; Play 2 Learn 4 Life has made the decision to put all clinic appointments on hold, effective immediately, until at least the end of the month. We hope that this decision will benefit the health of everyone.


We will be monitoring this situation daily and providing you with updates as appropriate. We will resume in-person 1:1 sessions when it is safe to do so.


In the meantime, we are able to offer alternative methods of services, including:

  • meetings over the phone,
  • written progress reports and home therapy plans
  • parent coaching on what to do with your kids while at home
  • remote sessions with older clients through Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime (as deemed appropriate)


Please contact your therapist to discuss which service delivery model will work best for your family.


As you are aware, BC schools (Kindergarten through grade 12) are now closed ‘indefinitely’, they are unsure when they will reopen. We understand that this will put a significant strain on parents. Especially those without childcare who are still expected to work, even if just from home. We want to reassure you that we are here to support you. Your children will need structured activities and a consistent routine now more then ever. Our team can provide suggestions of activities for you to do in your home with your child. Our team is well trained in how to design play schemes that are rich in sensory & motor stimulation while remaining indoors. If we are allowed outdoors into nature, then I have access to many resources for nature play as well. We can make recommendations for specific games/toys for you to order online that work on your child’s individual needs for language, social or cognitive learning. Please just email us and we would be happy to book a phone or online Skye/Zoom meeting with you to get this started.


Our clinic may be closed but our company will remain open. We can guarantee that we will be here for you remotely during this health crisis and that we will be able to open our doors and welcome you back as soon as it is safe to do so.


The clinic phone (604-568-1986) will not be answered during this time. Messages will be collected and returned within a week. Please instead use email to communicate with your therapist.


For families paying privately for their remaining invoices. We will not be taking cash or cheque payments at this time. Please instead use e-transfers to admin@play2learn4life.com or Quickbooks online payments, which will be set up later this week (enables credit cards).
