Preschool

Join us for our fun-filled preschool program where children enjoy free play, arts and crafts, and science experiments. This program will help prepare children for kindergarten, through our in-house curriculum focusing on color and alphabet recognition.
 
While enrolled your child is cared for by experienced YMCA employees who are Early Childhood Education or Child & Youth Care Certified.
 

Time in our gym gives your child the opportunity to be active, make friends and practice team-building activities. Plenty of time is spent in our aquatics centre learning to swim with our included swim lessons!

Mondays to Thursdays, with your choice of mornings or afternoons.
