Welcome to Discovery Preschool!

Our 2023/2024 Preschool Registration is now open! See details on our Registration page. 

Discovery Preschool is a parent cooperative offering a nurturing, stimulating environment that is Reggio and project inspired. With the teacher in the role of researcher, the children contribute to and establish the curriculum in partnership.

The daily schedule provides time for interactive play in a variety of interesting centers, gathering time, snack and group activities (e.g. yoga, drama, art, drumming). The students display and revisit their learning through photos, artwork and an artifact gallery.

Family and community play a crucial role in supporting the children’s inquiry and learning. Parents volunteer in the classroom on a rotational basis and each family assumes a job that contributes to the running of the program.

The 3 year old class runs on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:15-11:45.

The 4 year old class runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 9:15-11:45.

Parent Testimonials:

“I’ve seen my child grow so much at Discovery. She’s gained life skills and confidence, the free play and child driven curriculum always has her excited to go to school. Plus we’ve made so many new friends in the neighbourhood and we look forward to carrying these friends into elementary school.”

“My daughter has socially grown in leaps and bounds. She has made so many wonderful little friends, learned so many new skills, and absolutely adores the teachers. She loves to tell me about the new creative projects they are doing in the studio. The teachers’ imaginations and take on learning are wonderful.”

"My son is super busy, and he's learned some great self-regulation techniques through breaths at the preschool. His favourite part of the program is gym time, and he loves the teachers! The preschool has given him lifelong friendships and really helped him prepare for kindergarten."
