Act your age!

There's never a dull moment in BHC's Playroom! 

In December, the Playroom kicked off the holiday season by decorating our winning door for the Christmas Door Decorating contest. We turned the playroom door into a gingerbread house with candies, lollipops, and a cozy fire place and festive tree. The kids loved it!



We also organized lots of fun activities. The week before Christmas, we planned a Christmas Spirit week. Each day had a different festive theme.

Stay tuned for our  It's All Animals theme-day on January 17th during our toddlers program from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Come fight the " Christmas is over/Winter blues" and explore different activities based on animal themes. We'll have  Pin the Tail on the MonkeyJungle Playdough and  Animal Bowling.

We'll be monkeying around all month. 
Join us and your kids will thank you!

We're easy to reach


Recently, we gathered together in one place all the videos we've made that explain our Learning Coach Program. The reason we did so was to make these videos available and easily accessible to new clients. Once we finished, we thought others might also be interested in seeing them again. If so, the link to use to reach them is:


And a good time was had by all...


A New Nepean Bakery

Last month a new COBS Bread Bakery opened in Nepean and the Bethany Hope Centre community is benefiting from this company's generosity. Free baked goods are given to Bethany each day for our community members to enjoy.  

Here's how the company explains its community connection program:

"Community connection is engrained in COBS Bread's philosophy. In addition to participating in community events, COBS donates leftover bread to local charities daily. Each year, COBS Bread contributes more than $25 million in bread to charities and people in need."

500 Years ago


Five hundred years ago, a man named Martin Luther took a stand and changed the course of history. We decided to explore this moment in history by creating a colourful classroom display. 

A special thanks to Erika for doing hours of research and making this project a success!

What Is A Crisis?

We leave that up to you! If you are feeling overwhelmed as a parent or youth then you can call us for support.

A crisis for one person may not be considered a crisis for another. The event itself, therefore, does not define whether one is in crisis. Rather, it is the response (or lack of response) to an event which defines this term.

A crisis refers to a situation in which an individual is reacting to an event and sees  himself/herself as being unable to solve or manage and
is concerned that this situation will lead to an escalation of the problem, putting self and/or others at risk for harm.

The risk is too great to take the chance


Put the phone away!

Texting, driving and talking are all thinking tasks.

No one is able to do two thinking tasks at the same time.

If you don't believe that is true, take a look at this video . It will change your mind.

The help is free; all you have to do is ask.

The Ottawa Police will help make your place more secure

Home security inspections allow you to take an active role in making your home less susceptible to criminal activity. Based on proven crime prevention principles, you can learn how to make your homes safer.

At your request, representatives of the Ottawa Police Service will come to your home and conduct a security audit. They'll leave you with a booklet summarizing the improvements you can make to make your place safer. Give them a call.

Contact your local  Community Police Centre  to schedule your free home security inspection.

We'll be glad to see you
