Brains + Bodies

Learning & Activity Centre

On-Site Childcare, Enrichment, Tutoring, and more!

Registration now open

VRTU is excited to partner with Brains & Bodies, our new on-site Learning & Activity Centre! Combining martial arts training with quality educational programming, VRTU is now a one-stop shop for parents and families.

VRTU and Brains & Bodies share the same beliefs when it comes to children. Kids are superheroes - courageous, bold, and inspirational! The decision to connect these two programs was both purposeful and intentional. Martial arts training is a great tool for building a child's confidence and self-esteem. When a child builds confidence, that confidence radiates in so many other aspects of their lives - including education.

At the root of our program design and curriculum is a deep love for kids and watching them learn and grow. We believe in a holistic approach to education - one that nurtures the "whole" child - socially, physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

We are so excited to welcome you to our new space!
