A wide variety of activities take place inside the Julian of Norwich Anglican Church, Ottawa campus. These vibrant activities support our local community.
The Community Cooperative Preschool – Our qualified team provides an environment designed to foster the total development of young children. Our teachers create a resource-rich setting and child-centric programming that allows children to choose from various learning activities. Our goals are to help increase children’s self-confidence, problem solving abilities and enhance inspired learning. Our cooperative school, which first opened in 1962, runs programs for children from 2.5 to 5 years of age. Children may attend up to 5 mornings a week by combining programs.

New Star Children’s Theatre – This program is unique because all of the actors and actresses are 8-15 years old. The program consists of a mix of all aspects of the theatre. Children are taught, through weekly rehearsals (6-8 hours per week): acting techniques, comedy, musical theatre, chorus and solo vocal performances & dance. As well, the children are given the opportunity to take part in building and painting sets, props, stage management, assisting with directing, lighting, sound etc. Each year several musicals are presented after a few months of hard work and commitment. There are generally 2-4 casts (e.g. 3 “Nicely Nicely’s” 3 “Benny’s etc.) and when not in their main role, the cast member is in the chorus. We stress that all cast members are “Equal” – there is never just one star. 2 winter sessions (October-December & January-April), Spring and Summer session (April – October). Rehearsals are 2-3 times per week. We also have 2, one week long summer camps in the July and August. For more information please call 613-523-3264.
Victoria’s Quilts -Victoria’s Quilts Canada (VQC) provides handmade quilts to people living with cancer in Canada. By providing these quilts, we hope to bring physical comfort to those dealing with cancer as well as spiritual comfort in knowing that they are not alone in their struggle.
Our organization now comprises over 1,300 volunteers in 24 communities across Canada, plus Ottawa. The quilts we provide are made by individual quilters who work independently or in groups in a team setting similar to the quilting bees of times past. Since 1999, we have delivered over 50,000 quilts to people living with cancer across the country. We now make and distribute about 500 quilts per month.
The work we do is generously supported by our corporate sponsors, who help by donating or discounting their products and services and by making financial grants and donations. Community groups and organizations also support our program through financial contributions to the National Office and to the Branches. The major source of our funds, however, are donations from private individuals, who are often the recipients of our quilts, and their families and friends. As we do not have any paid staff, we rely solely on the generosity of these donors and our volunteers to carry out our mission.
The demand for quilts continues to rise steadily and we welcome new volunteers to help us meet that demand. You do not need to be an “expert” quilter or a sewer, as there are many other ways in which you can help.
