Families visiting for the first time must complete a meet and greet interview with a Haven team member at least one week prior to dropping their child off at the Haven. We do this to ensure we have a better understanding of how to best meet the child’s needs before they remain under our care for the duration of service.
Who is the Haven for?
Children with identified or unidentified exceptionalities that would benefit from one-on-one support or small group setting while at Calvary Kids.
Families with children who need additional support to meet their behavioral, emotional, social, and functional needs.
You will be given a brief, but detailed information sheet followed by an in-depth private interview to discuss the unique needs of each child. These conversations allow our team to determine the best plan of action to ensure success during the child’s time at Calvary kids.
Where is the Haven located?
Ages 0-2 nursery is fully integrated with peers and closely monitored by the nursery team.

What is a Haven "buddy"?
Children are paired with buddies to participate with one-on-one in free play, small groups, and service. Buddies closely monitor the need for a break, use of fidgets, use of headphones, visual schedules or supports, dietary restrictions, and advocating for communication and participation.
