Message from Eva (click on the link to view the video):

How are you coping with children at home during this time of physical isolation? Do you miss adult contact with others?

Just because we are physically isolated doesn’t mean we have to be socially isolated. If you want to connect and talk about how things are going, share your concerns, or just to have a chat, please contact Eva. She would love for you to reach out.

*Mondays – 1:30pm to 2:15pm and 2:15pm to 3:00pm *Tuesdays 7:00pm to 7:45pm and 7:45pm to 8:30pm.
