Things at Kohai are changing. Since 1973, we’ve been operating educational programming for students from age 4 to adulthood. In Fall 2018, we will make the transition from being a full-time day school to a programme for adults who wish to continue learning life, workplace and social skills in a small group setting.

We’re grateful to our students and their families for 45 years of support. In this new chapter will serve an older segment of the special needs community and we look forward to welcoming adult alumni and new faces to the Kohai LIFE programme.

LIFE stands for Living Independently with Friends Every Day!

Kohai LIFE is geared towards those 18 years and older who want to continue learning and developing functional academic, life and social skills while having fun in small groups.

Location: Kohai Educational Centre, 41 Roehampton Ave., Toronto (moving to 2010 Yonge St., Toronto for Fall 2018)
Attend daily, weekly or pick what suits you!
