How We Have Adapted
Our Early Childhood Services team responded quickly to school closures and created hundreds of hand-crafted packages tailored to each child’s unique needs and distributed to families. To further support learning from home, we’ve launched virtual ‘Circle Time’ and ‘Story Time’ for our little ones and have even seen home videos of them laughing and singing along from their living rooms.
Our ‘in-home’ team of Aides, Therapists and Practitioners have transitioned to providing video sessions with families and are providing digital session plans and activities to continue targeting children’s specific developmental goals in the home environment.
In a time unlike any that we have seen before, we would like to thank you for your continued support during COVID-19. We know these are challenging times in our community.
But as we weather this storm together, one thing remains constant; our deeply rooted commitment to ensuring Calgary children with special needs can thrive – evening in the face of a pandemic.
Together we are continuing to serve those who need us most. Because a child’s need for critical early intervention does not simply stop – even in these unprecedented times.
But we know we cannot do this alone and rely on the generosity of our amazing community.
Like so many organizations and individuals, Pacekids has also faced several challenges including the cancellation of multiple critical fundraising events due to COVID-19.
