What We Offer Your Child – Register for Preschool and PreK Today!

IMG_6668The four pillars of Canmore Preschool are –

  1. Fun;
  2. Socialization;
  3. Cognitive and Physical Development;
  4. Community.

Studies have shown that attending preschool has long-term positive effects on our children. Future education, relationships, careers, happiness…however you measure success, preschool provides a step up.

FUNCopy of IMG_4938

And yet, our classes often look like playtime! The same studies have shown that the most effective approach to early education is a mix of teacher-directed activities and child-directed exploration. Children learn through play.

SOCIALIZATIONDSCN1055

As children learn to share and progress from parallel play to cooperative play, they develop their first friendships with peers. Along the way we demonstrate and encourage children to show respect and empathy – for themselves, their peers, their teachers, and visitors to the class – for everyone!

COGNITIVE AND PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

Body Moves class.IMG_2461With daily opportunities for social play, arts and crafts, stories, songs, physical activity either in the gym or outside, and games that teach colours, shapes, letters, numbers, counting, and patterning, we provide all the materials your child needs to thrive, develop new skills, and move up to kindergarten with confidence.

COMMUNITYDSCN0953Sparky the Fire Dog

As a non-profit, parent-run, licensed program, founded in 1972, Canmore Preschool has deep roots in our community. We enjoy having parents in the classroom, and welcome many community visitors each year – firefighters, librarians, Alberta Parks educators, RCMP… We want our classes to reflect the diversity and strength of our community!
