KidsMania Klub

KidsMania Klub is an exciting after school prorgram for elementary aged children! Your kids will enjoy playing group games, making crafts, singing, dancing, and more at this weekly children's club. KidsMania Klub is for children in pre-school  - Grade 6 and will run once a week on Wednesdays. We will pickup children from Robina Baker Elementary School and walk with them to Devon Community Church.

*** UPDATE (March 16, 2020) ***

As I'm sure many of you have already heard, as a response to COVID-19, classes have been suspended indefinitely for students K - 12 across the province. For more information about this announcement and to keep up to date on information for Albertans, visit the provincial website by clicking HERE. In an effort to prevent the spread of the virus, these preventative measures of social distancing have been extended to out-of-school care programs as well. 
Given these unprecedented circumstances, KidsMania Klub will follow the recommendations of Dr. Hinshaw (Chief Medical Officer of Health) and Alberta Health Services and suspend our program until further notice. 

At this time we want to help you and your kid(s) cope with the uncertainty and anxiety that can be caused by this sort of situation. For a great, short video on how to talk with your kid(s) about the coronavirus click here (Nemours KidsHealth). Or for a written article click here (World Economic Forum).  Some resources to watch with your kids would include this quick video on hand washing (click here) or this child-friendly explanation of what COVID-19 is and how we can prevent it (CLICK HERE). If you are finding that these circumstances are impacting the eating, sleeping, and mental health of your child, consider reaching out to medical professionals for their support. Or if you want to, Pastor Gil would be happy to chat with you and he would likely be able to suggest mental health professionals that would be helpful to you. The Kids Help Phone is a 24/7 National health service that provides professional counseling, information, and referrals. Their helpline is 1-800-668-6868. Or you can text "CONNECT" to 686868.

If there are other ways that we as a church can support you or be of help, please let us know. Feel free to contact me (kids@devonchurch.com) or Pastor Gil Dimas (gdimas@devonchurch.com).

In difficult times we find a source of hope and strength in our faith.
