Both our Kingston and Kentville Autism Centres are now open for scheduled visits!

Our doors are open at both locations for visits from FAMILIES and SCHOOL groups. Public health and safety protocols will be in place. Visits are limited to a maximum of 10 people and just one family or school group will be permitted to visit at a time. Visit bookings will be available during specific times on certain days each week. Visits should be booked a minimum of three days in advance and will be limited to 1.5 hours. Unfortunately, we are not able to permit drop-ins at either Centre at this time.

We are also continuing to book meeting appointments with caregivers and professionals.

If you would like to check available visit times or book a meeting at either Centre, please contact us:

Kingston Centre (565 Main St): 902-242-2019/

Kentville Centre (495 Main St.): 902-349-9318 /

We can't wait to see everyone again!

The Annapolis Valley Chapter began in 1996 as Valley Autism Support Team (V.A.S.T.)  In 2012 V.A.S.T joined with Autism Nova Scotia in order to work together to enhance programs and services in the Annapolis Valley. The Chapter is led by a group of dedicated volunteers and has now expanded to serve over 250 families.

​Programs in the Annapolis Valley Chapter include: Summer Day Camp, Preschool Playgroup, Social Groups for School-Age Children, Teens and Adults, Therapeutic Riding, Social Skills, Swimming, and much more.   The Chapter also regularly hosts family events, parent support groups, educational workshops and information sessions.  In February 2015 the Chapter opened an Autism Centre in Kingston (565 Main St.) which houses a sensory gym, a calming room and a resource library.  Families and school groups are welcome to drop in during regular office hours.
