Preschool and Kindergarten camps (age 3 to 5)

Preschool and Kindergarten camps (age 3 to 5)

For students currently enrolled or looking to enroll in Pre-school and Kindergarten, aged 3 to 5.

Join one of the only full day preschool summer camps in BC. Cousteau bilingual camps take place inside and outside and incorporate athletic, enrichment, and creative pursuits. In addition to exciting programs run by Cousteau’s own talented instructors, we are excited to partner with Dolphin Kids, Sportball, and Faly Academy of Soccer.

Dolphin Kids programs focus on innovation, leadership, and resiliency. Their mission is to nurture and inspire every child’s innate intelligence and innovative nature, by empowering them to be self-motivated through social connection, positive communication, critical thinking, creative expression, and purposeful contribution.  Please note that the same theme can be taken on multiple weeks as each week incorporates different activities.

Sportball methodology is designed to support three key areas of development: sport skills, social skills, and motor skills. Students learn the fundamentals of eight different ball sports in a fun, non-competitive setting.

Faly Academy is led by French footballers with international professional experience whose passion is to help students achieve their personal best. Focus is on technical aspects of soccer. Widely recognized as one of the premier academies on the North Shore, Faly coaches also highlight the importance of sportsmanship and comportment while on the field.

Cousteau’s preschool instructors possess either an Early Childhood Education (ECE) certificate or an ECE Assistant (ECEA) certificate making them uniquely qualified to run a full day camp for little kids. Our certified, caring staff will be with your child for the entire day, even while external providers are instructing the children.
