Variety – The Children’s Charity of Alberta

Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta supports children who are living with disabilities and specialized needs in our communities.

Through education, advocacy, direct support, and community outreach, we support children who are facing physical, developmental, emotional, or learning challenges and are dedicated to advancing the health, quality of life, and enrichment of children living with specialized requirements and needs.

The initiatives that we engage in support building inclusive and healthy communities for children living with specialized needs to gain greater independence and positive life experiences.

Vision: To enable all children living with specialized needs to be an active part of their community.

Mission: Through community initiatives, partnerships, and education, Variety Alberta enables inclusion, wellness, and independence for children who are facing physical, developmental, emotional, or learning challenges.

We believe that:

  • Barriers can be removed through education, increased awareness, and creating environments of acceptance, understanding, and celebration of differences.
  • Every child has the right to be safe, to be healthy, and to play so as to experience the simple pleasures of childhood.
  • We can have an inclusive and accessible Alberta for children who are living with disabilities and specialized needs.

TOPP KIDS also partakes in Varieties PD opportunities for families and team members as well as their Sensory Backpack initiative at all our TK programs.
