We are a community-based Coquitlam preschool, with early childhood education programs to nurture, inspire and support preschool-aged children (ages 30 months to pre-Kindergarten). Our program schedule offers the choice of preschool classes twice a week, three times a week, or every weekday. Read about our sample daily schedule, play-time activities, and special events.
Located at Parkland Elementary in central Coquitlam, our facilities include a spacious classroom with a bathroom and cubby-area, covered outdoor play area, playground, grass-field and parking lot just feet from our classroom door.
Our two dedicated Early-Childhood Educators are devoted to the development of your child, and preparation for their educational journey. Contact us to plan your visit, or to inquire for more information.
