Do you have a little one with a desire to “play hockey” or just learn to skate? This is something my boys talk about often so as I was searching through my options and found that Pre CanSkate lessons are perfect for 3 to 5 year olds and are offered at quite a few local businesses. Where this age group is usually a little harder to find things to do with, much like the baby generation, we hope this list of skating lessons in Edmonton and area will help:
