It is important to Spirit of the Children that our clients are supported during this time. New intakes will happen as normal as you can complete our form on our website and you will be contacted. If you are a current client of Spirit of the Children, your worker will continue to be in contact with you. If you feel you need additional support, please contact your worker.

 

***IMPORTANT NOTICE MAR 16/2020***
Spirit of the Children asks that you please stay home and do not attend any programs if you are exhibiting any flu-like symptoms (fever, dry cough, difficulty breathing). We work with vulnerable babies and Elders at our office and want to keep everyone safe. In the meantime, the following precautions are recommended to the general public and are the same as recommended during the cold and flu season:

•Wash your hands regularly and often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
•Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
•Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, use a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow.
•Avoid touching your face, eyes and mouth
•Avoid others who are unwell
•Stay home when you are sick
