Welcome to Calvary Kids!
We provide loving care and spiritual direction for children from birth to Grade 5 (inclusive).
Babies and toddlers from birth to 3 years can go directly to their rooms and be signed in there. Ask at the Calvary Kids sign-in desk or the welcome desk and someone will be glad to direct you to their special area.
For children from JK - Gr. 5, registration begins just before the worship service at 10:15am (to the right of the foyer area).
Children will be dismissed from the service after approximately 10-15 minutes of singing. Parents...just relax and enjoy the service as volunteers will escort your kids to the Calvary Kids area. Children may be picked up in the Calvary Kids area following the service. If you have any questions, just ask one of our ushers or greeters. They'll be ready to help!
What Are We All About?
We seek to supplement and support the primary leadership of parents and guardians in the home, by providing a learning environment that seeks to direct children to Jesus Christ through his written word, the Bible. We seek to provide an environment that is conducive to the various stages of physical, mental, social and spiritual stages of development.
What Will You Teach My Children?
In short, the gospel - God's good news of salvation, is at the centre of all we believe and teach. Take a look at what we believe about the gospel below.
At Calvary Kids, we believe that if you have entrusted us with your children, it is our responsibility to provide an excellent curriculum that is truly based on God's Word, not just simplistic moral lessons taken from it. That is why we use a curriculum called The Gospel Project.
Promote Gospel Transformation, Not Behavior Modification
Every session points kids to the gospel of Jesus Christ as the source of heart-transformation and the foundation for spiritual growth.
See How the Whole Bible Fits Together
From Genesis to Revelation, kids will understand how the entire story of the Bible reveals God’s plan of redemption through Jesus Christ.
Teach Kids to Live on Mission
Every session is developed to help kids know God more and to learn of His missionary heart – encouraging kids to join in the story by sharing Jesus with the world.
Understand the Key Themes of Christianity
Each session helps kids acknowledge essential theological doctrines of the Christian faith as they are found throughout the Bible.
What Else Will My Children Be Doing?
Once your child has been dismissed for the service for Calvary Kids, we will begin with a time of worship that seeks to glorify God. This is followed by a time of large group teaching and application in age-specific classrooms (small groups!). Our focus is to encourage your children to apply God's Word to their lives.
What About Infants and Toddlers?
Our loving volunteers who care for all infants and toddlers provide a safe learning environment and seek to engage the children in singing, Bible storytime, and activities consistent with their age and abilities.
Calvary Kids Newsletter
Every quarter, the Calvary Kids staff produces a parent newsletter informing parents about what's happening in Calvary Kids! Check out the latest newsletter here!

CALVARY ADVENTURE CAMP
During July and August, kids are invited to come for a full week of fun and adventure at Calvary Adventure Camp. This summer day camp program offers special electives like cooking, sports, woodworking, and other activities along with special day trips. Biblical lessons teach truths from the Bible and focus on Jesus! Last summer we were thrilled to host over 350 children and we're trusting God that your children will be able to join us for any or all of the weeks this year.
