Kidville Grow is our midweek program for kids in senior kindergarten through grade 5. It runs on Wednesday nights from 6:00- 7:30pm. Parents drop off and pickup at Southgate Church in Kemptville. Kids are in small groups with great leaders and other kids their age, and our goal is to grow in faith and friendships. We do that through monthly themes, music, Bible stories, games and activities in a high energy environment. We follow child protection guidelines and each group has two leaders. Kidville Grow is a free program and a snack is provided (please let us know any allergies your child has). We have a quarterly prize store when kids can spend their points.
Spots are limited, and consistent attendance is required to keep your spot! Register now for the September 21 start!
WEDNESDAYS FROM 10-11:30AM
Not enough sleep, feeding, changing, potty training, and tantrums don't need to keep you at home... find solidarity with other parents, swap tips, and get spiritual encouragement for this stage of life. Parents or guardians of babies and young kids can come get to know other parents and talk while your little ones play in a spacious room.
*Meeting outdoors at parks until the weather turns bad! Join Southgate Play Group and Strollercize on Facebook for regular updates.
The Sensory Room at Southgate is currently by appointment only.
Whether you are a parent, respite worker, or therapist, this space is available for free for kids age 4 and up to come and have fun, experience quiet and calm, or work on their gross or fine motor, communication, sensory processing, or other skills. The room can be booked for a self-guided hour. Please call the office at 613-258-6123

INDOOR PLAY STRUCTURE
Currently closed until fall 2022
Our Canadian-made indoor play structure is used for public group playtimes and birthday party rentals. We love seeing kids play and use their motor skills, burn energy, and interact socially, while parents and guardians play with them or sit and have a rest
During the summer, play structure bookings are closed and the play structure is used for day camp and for play before and after church on Sundays.
If you're looking for a way to plug in at Southgate, you like kids and volunteering, there are a variety of big and small ways to inspire kids and serve kids along with their families. All of our KIDVILLE Volunteers are asked to submit a current vulnerable sector check before they start serving.
