    École Varennes Family Centre

    Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) Family Centres are a free community place for families to play, learn and grow together. A variety of programs are offered throughout the year and focus on supporting families with preschool children.  

    We are happy to announce the re-opening of these spaces as of April 4, 2022. All participants are strongly encouraged to wear a mask. Families should self-screen prior to arriving at the Family Centre and stay home if sick.

    École Varennes Family Centre provides FREE PROGRAMMING  in English (unless otherwise specified) for families and children 0-6 years to participate in developmentally appropriate activities that involves learning social, cognitive, fine and gross motor skills essential for child development. 

    We focus on:

    *play based activities

    *sensory experiences


    *social play

    Parents can experience the opportunity to network with other parents, find resources relevant to their family and fun and new ideas to do with their children at home.  A nutritious snack is served as well as coffee/tea. ALL PROGRAMMING IS FREE! 

    We are now accepting registrations for Les `Pétites Étoiles, a free preschool program that runs from September to May for children who turn 4 by December 31, 2022 and will attend École Varennes in September 2023.  This program is an introduction to the French language as well as the school environment.  We will participate in school activites such as Gym class, assemblies, etc.
