Casino – Next in 2021

Thank you to all the volunteers from 2017!!! We are granted a casino once every three years, so we expect our next one to be in 2020.


Our last Casino was October 12 & 13, 2017. Past info:

We will be seeking volunteers for these two days, and will email a sign up sheet to all preschool families.

  • Shuttle bus for all night shift volunteers to and from Century Casino Calgary.
  • Carpooling will be organized for day shifts.
  • Complimentary meal in the casino restaurant for each volunteer.
  • Easy work overseen by a professional casino adviser who shows us what to do.

This is the single biggest fundraiser for the preschool. It takes place once every three years, and has historically brought in $45,000 to $50,000 directly towards our teachers’ salaries. This helps keep our program affordable for families.

The casino is part of a system run by the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission. As a non-profit society we are eligible to put our name forward for a casino date. A date is assigned to us by lottery when our turn comes. Then we provide volunteers to staff the casino in exchange for a percentage of the revenue. Many non-profit organizations across the province take advantage of this funding stream.

Our last casino in September 2014 was a great success. Many thanks to all our volunteers for working late hours in Calgary!!!

Learning through play!
