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!


Fire Fighter Visit – October 8th

The fire fighters can only give us one day to visit this year. We have 7 classes at Preschool. We are inviting the classes who do not normally meet on a Thursday to join us with their parents to visit with the fire fighters.

11:00am- Ms. Nataliya & Ms. Carmen’s 4 yr. old morning classes and Ms. Carmen’s 3yr. old M/W afternoon class. Parents and children attend together for the presentation and fire truck.

Fall is here – and so is Orange Day! Sept 28 & 29

IMG_6668IMG_6653Our first colour day of the year is coming up. The play dough will be orange. We will mix red and yellow paints. We will tell fall stories about changing leaves.

Please dress your child in as much orange as you can find, and send them with an orange snack!

We’ll have a different colour theme once each month. The best way to keep on top of classroom activities like this is the calendar, either on this site or in the newsletter.

Join the Board! A member moved to Calgary and we need a new volunteer

Position Filled! Thanks!


To all parents of current preschoolers, we need your help!

We have a vacancy on our board for this year. Our Fundraising Coordinator and her family have moved to Calgary, so we are seeking a parent to fill this position. This will fulfill your volunteer commitment for the year! Here are the details:

Fundraising Coordinator

Attend a monthly board meeting. Usually 1.5 hours long or less, at the Iron Goat. (This is a voting member so we do need regular attendance in order for us to make timely decisions.)

Organize frozen pizza sales in May with Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co.

Supervise (and assist if necessary) the Raffle Coordinator and Artisans Market Coordinator.

That’s it! We would love to have you onboard the board 🙂 so please call the office at 403-678-2538 or email me, Lindsey, at Thank you!
