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.
