The Resort Municipality of Whistler’s recreationally based early years programs are designed to developmentally progress your child through their early years in preparation for kindergarten.
Our programs support and encourage emotional, cognitive, social, and physical development through a variety of arts, crafts, songs, storytelling, games, fine and gross motor activities, and of course free play. As programs progress, children stay for longer periods of time and program leaders meet the children with activities that provide age appropriate challenges and plenty of opportunities for success. This fun environment with positive leader encouragement will keep children engaged and excited to attend.
