A Head Start on Healthy Living
Leapah’s Learning Garden is a balanced program made specifically for preschool aged children. The program focuses on developing each child’s physical, cognitive, emotional, spatial and mental abilities in a safe, inclusive, fun and encouraging environment.
We offer programs for 3 and 4-year-olds. Our programs help children learn and discover through a variety of educational and physical activities that focus on healthy socialization and positive self-esteem. Each program runs from September to June, and classes are either twice per week or three times per week for two and a half hours. We ask that all participants that join our program are potty trained.
*** NEW *** Additional Class Add-on. All ages are welcome to add additional classes to their initial class choice. Students are welcome to attend 2 days per week, 3 days, 4 days or all 5 days per week! Please feel free to select whichever additional class(es) suit your family schedule (subject to availability.)

The program is taught in our incredible, preschool-sized, Kinder Gym, which offers children a safe, colourful and exciting environment that is the perfect place for learning and discovery. The Kinder Gym also has a licensed preschool room dedicated to education that is filled with creative toys, books, art supplies and activities.
Leapah’s Learning Garden offers children a chance to explore and use their imagination through monthly themes. Each theme will have corresponding activities, curriculum and art projects. Through the use of these themes, children become more enthusiastic about learning and physical activity. Some themes include dinosaurs, farms, senses, seasons and the world.
- To provide children with a development program centered on multi-movement.

Throughout the year the preschoolers will learn about several different subjects.

Children will learn to recognize letters and sounds. Introductory pre-writing activities will also be offered regularly, and children will begin to trace, recognize and print their names.
Art projects correspond to the monthly theme and encourage creativity. Children will develop their imaginations and fine motor skills.
Gymnastics & Movement:
Fun, active and safe gymnastics exercises will get children moving and make them healthier and happier. Each class focuses on building physical literacy through the fundamental skills of gymnastics in a positive environment. Children develop flexibility, coordination and strength.
Nursery rhymes, poems, stories and oral activities are utilized to enhance each child’s vocabulary and encourage a love of reading and books.
