At Toronto Buddhist Church we welcome all families!
Our vision is to bring together young children of all ethnic backgrounds and help them learn and experience the Buddha Dharma in a way that is relevant to their everyday lives.
Our Kids Sangha program is run in a safe and fun environment by a team of volunteers who are passionate about teaching children. Our hope is that children aged 4 to 13 years of age will build new friendships, have fun and feel good about the time spent at the Temple as they participate in activity-based programs geared towards this age group.
Kids Sangha meets every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the Month – please refer to our calendar for the exact dates.View our Calendar
