It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around Mississauga!  Holiday events for Mississauga Kids are popping up and Santa is arriving in Mississauga to greet excited girls and boys who have been making their wish lists.

As we all get excited to get together with family, hang our stockings and bake delicious treats, it is also important to remember those who have a hard time during the holidays and look for ways to give back.  There are many Christmas Food and Toy Drives happening around Mississauga and we encourage you to give back if you can and help Peel Region families have a merrier Christmas.

Two of our favourite holiday things including shopping at local Mississauga holiday craft shows and attending the Light Up The Square event which is happening on November 21 this year from 5pm to 9pm.  Light Up The Square is an awesome family event that involves the official lighting of the Square Christmas tree, musical performances, kid zone filled with fun and yummy food trucks too.

What are your favourite holiday traditions around Mississauaga?

Looking for a tutor to help your child?  Mississauga tutors offer a wide range of options including tutors that come to your home, centre based tutors or tutors that are specialists in a certain subject such as math, English or french.

Trying to help your own child with their homework is sometimes not the best mix.  A third party, like a tutor, can work with your child and help them achieve their academic goals.  Tutors in Mississauga can be hired at any point during the school year.  If you are looking for additional information for Mississauga Kids (like where to find a great dance studio), view the Northwest Mississauga or South Mississauga Back To School guides.

Mississauga Dance Studios can be found in all parts of the city.  When finding the right dance class for your child, consider the hours and registration fees, room for growth in the program and what type of dance programs are offered - ballet, jazz, tap, acro, lyrical, etc.

Use this list to help you find the type of dance studio you are looking and when their registration takes place.  Some studios operate three terms per year while others run from September straight through until June.

Several dance studios offer boys only hip hop classes and parent and tot introduction to dance classes. Dance is a great way for kids to learn about movement, to be active and to gain appreciation for discipline and hard work.
