Get ready – Santa’s coming to town!  We have lots of opportunities for you to get in touch:




This year, thanks to Oxford Properties, we’re happy to be offering opportunities for our families to spend some quality time with Santa in a relaxed, quieter atmosphere.  Both Hillcrest Mall (November 18 and 25) and Upper Canada Mall (November 17 and 18)  will be opening their doors early for AO York families, and both are offering 50% off the regular photo package pricing during our special hours.

Of course, we’re also holding our annual Photos with Santa on Friday November 23 (PA Day), with Social Image Photography and the REAL Santa :).  Participants will receive a FREE electronic picture to share.  Families can register for one mall event as well as this.

Registration for all Santa Photo events will open Monday November 5, 2018 at 12:00pm and will close when full.

What better way to get in the holiday spirit then decorating a Gingerbread house! The kids will have the opportunity to decorate their own house (1 house per child). Please sign up for 1 class only!

NOTE: We can accommodate up 20 in each session and we are running two sessions. Please sign up for only one session. WHERE POSSIBLE, WE ASK ONLY ONE PARENT ACCOMPANY THE CHILD UNLESS THERE ARE MULTIPLE CHILDREN BECAUSE OF SPACE RESTRICTIONS. Event spots will be given on a first come first serve basis and registration will close once the classes are full.




Whatever you’re celebrating, come and celebrate with your Autism Ontario York Chapter community!  December 3 – more info and registration coming soon!
