Lessard Community


where learning begins

West Edmonton Location for Excellent Play School Tucked away downstairs in a west end community league hall, there is a hidden gem. Rather than a dark basement, Lessard Community is fortunate to have a beautiful, bright and cheerful classroom, located at 17404 – 57 avenue in Edmonton’s west end, that is ready to welcome three and four year old students to their first school experience. Lessard Playschool, which is conveniently located in the west end just minutes off the Henday and Whitemud, offers programming to a unique and diverse group of young learners in our “learn through play,” theme-based classroom. Activities and centres are planned to intrigue and engage our young students, while always creating fun opportunities for learning and exploring. By capturing the imaginations of our students, our goal is to create a love of learning and school that will endure for years to come! Each year we are pleased to welcome our students from all areas of the west end and around the city to offer themes based on the world around them, as well as their varied interests. Seasons and holidays are explored through daily art projects, stories, games and centres each year. Themes such as Insects, Space, Under the Sea, Vet and Pet shop are just a few that change from year to year at our west Edmonton playschool. Whether the children are feeding sea turtles during a special field trip in the west end or in other areas of the city, singing and playing instruments with our music teacher, practicing social skills during free play with their fellow classmates or developing their fine motor skills at our sensory play station, playschool is a lot of fun. The children are picking up the necessary skills to help them excel in school and in life, without even realizing it. Our experienced teaching team consists of a teacher with a background in elementary education, Miss Jen, and teaching assistants Miss Heather and Miss Michelle. The teaching team is passionate about providing a welcoming classroom in our west end playschool to every student. They recognize each child’s unique personality and needs and strive to ensure that what the students experience at playschool is positive each day. They treat each day as if it were the only day for their students; they want each child to fall in love with school every day that they are there!
