Come and let your child explore, discover and create with their imagination in a safe, fun environment.

We offer a play-based environment where we support your child/ren through language development with respect for self and others in a group environment. The program evolves from learning about self and others to a school readiness  outcome.   We explore a sound each week, which will begin to prepare your child for reading. We practice printing our names, and explore math and science through the calendar, baking, games and arts.

Parents are welcome to come into the program.  As we embrace multi-culturalism,  we are excited to celebrate and learn about new cultures.  We have had the pleasure of one mom reading us a story in Chinese and translating it into English. One mum brought her gardening skills, and the children were able to plant seeds, and take them home with them to watch them grow. One dad enjoyed playing in the “ooblik”, and just hanging out.

We also have a monthly potluck, where families bring in a savoury or sweet dish, and we have an opportunity to get to better know each other while sitting around the tables.  This is also a great time to share cultural food.

We are very fortunate to be located on the Jericho Military site.  As we go outside rain or shine, we have wonderful safe grounds to explore our natural BC surroundings and run free, with minimal street traffic.

We are also fortunate to offer a program with small class sizes and 2 ECE certified and first aid trained teachers! The program currently runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 am until 12:00 pm and there are a few spaces left for the Fall session.  We will also consider opening an afternoon session in January if enough interest is generated so inquire today.
