Fundraising Events

Our three biggest fundraisers are:

  1. Casino (once every 3 years; next one is 2024)
  2. Canmore Christmas Artisan’s Market (Nov 19-20th, 2022)
  3. Canmore Preschool Winter Auction/Raffle

Each of these provides essential operating funds for the Preschool programs, and each relies on the energy and creativity of our community of parents. Please, check out the Volunteers’ bulletin board in the Preschool lobby to see current opportunities to contribute to our programs and fundraisers.

Parent Responsibilities

There are three types of volunteering you are making a commitment to perform when you enroll your child in preschool:

  • Provide 4 hours of volunteer work per child per year. This could be help cleaning toys, or at the Christmas Artisans’ Market, or auditing the books, or lots more opportunities throughout the year.

Check here to see if we have any open volunteer positions.

These commitments keep our program quality high and our fees low!
