Shuswap Pre-School Program


All our staff are highly skilled and each one brings unique talents to our team. Planning for our weekly learning themes is done together and everyone contributes ideas for activities and experiences.

We have a structured schedule for our daily routines, but because we recognize the importance of being spontaneous we are flexible. When a child shows an interest we like to expand upon it for the whole group and make it into a learning experience.

We pride ourselves in our open, warm environment. Parents are always encouraged to visit and share with the children and staff.
