Our school is a member of the Vancouver Island Cooperative Preschool Association (VICPA).

All VICPA preschools are parent-operated. The preschools are administered and maintained by the parents on a non-profit, non-sectarian, inter-cultural basis.

Under the guidance of a qualified Early Childhood Educator (ECE) parents assist in the classroom. Parent participation preschools promote direct involvement of parents. This makes for a unique educational family experience.

Parent participation provides:

  • time to observe your child interacting with a consistent group of their peers
  • guidance of a qualified ECE as role model and resource on child development
  • the opportunity to meet, socialize, and work cooperatively with a diverse group of parents from the community
  • emotional and practical support in parenting from other parents
  • free access to monthly parent education sessions featuring topics of interest to you
  • a chance to contribute existing skills and develop new ones
