Village Square Preschool Program

Village Square Leisure Centre Preschool Program

Your child will grow and develop through a variety of indoor and outdoor activities that emphasize social, physical, intellectual and emotional development with the guidance of qualified and experienced instructors.

Explore Village Square Leisure Centre


Experience the many different aspects of Village Square Leisure Centre while taking part in our activity-based program. Children will love taking advantage of our indoor jungle gym play structure, playing games in the gymnasium, exploring their creativity through art, and occasionally spending time in the kiddie pool or ice skating in our arenas.

Getting your child ready for success


Children will prepare for kindergarten through a variety of meaningful play opportunities. Our program encourages creativity, cooperation and fun, helping them build self-confidence, identity and independence. 

A day in our program at Village Square Leisure Centre


A typical day in our preschool program includes free play, circle time, art/science time, physical activity time and snack time.

Free play time

Our tabletop play centres and other materials help your child explore their imagination, learn cooperation, and practice shapes, sizes, colors, numbers, language and motor skills.

Circle/group time

Children learn how to follow directions, work independently or in groups, gather information, connect stories to pictures and other valuable pre-reading skills.

Art/science time

This tactile learning experience — whether forming a blob of dough or feeling paint on their fingers — allows children to expand their creativity, improve their hand-eye coordination and exercise their fine motor skills.

Physical activity time

Preschoolers will develop the fundamental movement skills that all children need, such as running, hopping, throwing, catching and jumping. Spending time in our indoor jungle gym play structure or gymnasium increases their physical literacy and helps lead them to lifelong participation in physical activity.

Snack time

Our nut-free snack time promotes healthy eating by encouraging parents to send a small nutritious food item and water bottle with their preschooler each day.
