Guess who’s coming to town! Parents might want to come and take a picture

All parents are invited to join for Santa’s visits: The days and times are listed below for your child’s class. As this is a special time for your preschooler, and Santa will not have extra gifts, no siblings please. Also, please keep Santa’s visit a secret – we do not build the anticipation with the kids.

Canmore Christmas Artisans’ Market – Thank You!


Thank you to all of the parents who helped to make the 20th Canmore Christmas Artisans’ Market such a huge success. It took many hands to put together an event of this scale and it was a great way to gather the community and celebrate the start of the holiday season. This year a record 3,800+ people came over the two days, and we raised nearly $18,000 for the Preschool! Thanks to all!
