About the program

We’re excited to announce that the Mount will soon offer a physical movement program for children in our community between the ages of 4-7. The program, called PACE (Physically Active Children Excel) at the Mount, will teach young children introductory fine and gross motor skills, and at the same time help them develop confidence in their physical, social and cognitive abilities. Instructors will follow the Active Start program (developed by Special Olympics Canada), which is designed to work on balance, coordination, and fine and gross motor skills through play-based learning.

Volunteers needed

Our goal is to launch PACE at the Mount in early 2018, with the program running Tuesday mornings from 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the Mount’s gymnasium.

Please note: Registration for the training session is now FULL.
