Posted By

Over a single weekened in May 2024, we installed SIX Smilezones at Waypoint Mental Health! The Smilezones were done in the Stairwell, Café, Quiet Nook, Child/Youth Programming Room, Waiting Room and Exam Room. The Smilezones will include: Fresh paint, Colorful Murals, Rolling Storage, iPad with Lockable Kiosk, Book Display, Magnetic/ Dry Erase Whiteboard, Kids Tactile Table, Sensory Table and Wall Mounted Device Charger. 

Thank you to our generous donor’s, Waypoint Foundation and Smilezone Foundation Golf Tournament for making this project possible!

“Smilezone isn’t just any play area—it’s a transformative space designed to bring comfort and joy to children and their families during medical visits,” said Suzanne Marchand, Executive Director Chigamik. “With vibrant murals, interactive sensory activities, and cozy furnishings, Smilezone creates an environment where kids can play, relax, and feel at ease.”

“With sincerest thanks, Waypoint celebrates the Smilezone Foundation’s remarkable partnership in enhancing our clinical spaces, making them warm, inviting, and tailored to the needs of children and families,” said Dr. Nadiya Sunderji, President & CEO, Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care. “Their commitment to transforming healthcare environments will make a lasting impact on the well-being of our youngest patients and their families, fostering a sense of comfort and healing for all who enter.”
