Children and youth programs

Children's programs

Genesis Place offers parent and child programs for children as young as 16 months.

Physical Literacy; we all know that you have to be able to walk before you can run, but did you know that you have to be able to hop before you can skip or balance before you can kick? Our programs focus on early physical literacy skills through games and activities to promote fun and enjoyment of an active lifestyle later on in life. If your preschooler is independent, there are a variety of classes that incorporate movement, balance, fun and discovery. 

Remember to register early as minimum numbers need to be met prior to program start date.
