Preschool, Child, and Youth Programs

Print Email

From indoor and outdoor sports, drama, dance, martial arts, baking, and youth nights, OSCA provides an amazingly wide range of programs for children of all ages. Grown-ups with an active inner-child, please accept our apologies but do also look at our adult programs.


*Note if you are looking for Breakfast Club and After-Four or Camps and PD Days, there is a separate page for both of those sections*


Preschool Programs

OSCA runs a variety of preschool programs. Some are parent and tot where preschoolers attend class with a parent or caregiver. Parents and children are welcome to register for these programs at any time! If you begin a program after the first week, you will receive a pro-rated price if you register in person. Others are drop-off programs where our experienced preschool teachers and specialized instructors guide your child through different activities like crafts, music, active games, and much more! Our program guides have more details regarding the different options we offer each session. Check out our Spring Preschool Program Lineup below.


Child and Youth Programs

We run a variety of different children’s programs throughout each session. They range from sports and physical activity to visual arts to dancing and more! Some programs we've offered include Jiu Jitsu, Pottery, Young Rembrandts Cartooning, Chess lessons, Babysitting Certifications, Spring Soccer, Nerf, Lego, Cycling Safety, and more! Check out our Spring Children/Youth Programs below.


Featured Programs:



Spring Youth Nights at the Firehall


We’re so excited for our Spring Youth Nights. We only have three youth night left but they’re going to be spectacular!


Our first Spring youth night is an evening of Muggle Madness on Friday, May 3rd. We’re transforming the Firehall into Hogwarts for the evening. Some highlights for the night include quidditch challenges and wand making.


Friday, May 10th is going to be our Jedi Training night! We’ll be one with the Force during this awesome night.

Finally, Friday, May 31st is our Red & Black Lumberjack BBQ Bash! This will bring our amazing 2018-2019 year of youth nights to a close, so you know it’s going to be awesome. We’ll be serving up BBQ hotdogs, blasting the music, and playing a few lumberjack games at the Firehall. Make sure you wear your red and black!


Spring Junior Youth Nights


Friday, April 26th is our Pirate Party. It’s going to be swashbuckling good time. We’re going to have skewered kabobs for dinner. After dinner, we’re going to be making pirate parrots and hats. Yarrgh!


It’s going to be a wild Wild West night on Friday, May 24th. For dinner, we’re going to have spaghetti (because of spaghetti Westerns, obviously). Activities will include making pool noodle horses and racing them in Michael Jenkin Hall during our chuckwagon races. Yeehaw!

Finally, our last Junior Youth Night of the year is going to be Pharaoh and Mummy mania on Friday, June 15th! We’re going to be having ‘wraps’ for dinner and activities will include making our own pharaoh bracelets and building some pyramids. And that’ll be a wrap!
We’ve had an absolute blast this year at our Junior Youth Nights! We’ve spotted some mythical creatures, chased some leprechauns, and turned into mad scientists. The fun is going to continue during the spring with our exciting new themes.
