Educational Philosophy: Learning Through Play!
We focus on the social, emotional, and intellectual development of the children, achieved through age-appropriate play and activity. Play is facilitated by the teachers, but led by the children.
We are also a nature-based preschool. This means that we spend much of our day outside! Our kiddos love the fresh air, physical activity, and nature exploration!
Sidney Preschool is a nurturing place for children to play, explore possibilities, and reach their potential. They enter primary school confident, self-reliant, and ready for new challenges!
Our History: 49 Years Strong!
Sidney Cooperative Preschool has been operating in St. Paul’s Church since its inception in 1972 (though we are not affiliated with the church). We belong to the Vancouver Island Cooperative Preschool Association (VICPA), which has been operating since 1949!
