Southland Leisure Centre offers playschool (school year and seasonal programs), drop-in preschool programs and babysitting service. Your preschool aged children can play, learn, and be physically active while you take advantage of our classes, pool and other amenities.

Playschool - school year (September to June)


Our playschools offer preschool children an active and engaging opportunity to learn physical, and social skills. Children are taught active play, songs, activities, arts and crafts. They learn skills that help build the foundations of being active for life, while preparing them for school. Read the playschool handbook for more information about playschool programs.
