Offering Enriching Preschool Programs for 2, 3 and 4 year olds
Our Licensed Preschool programs are emergent, child-led and follow an integrated approach to learning. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment and learning experiences that promote wonder and challenge curiosities based on the interests of the children while fostering life-long learning.
Our House thrives on utilizing the BC Early Learning Framework. “By supporting the creation of rich, joyful early childhood spaces where children & adult’s ideas and miracles come together. Knowledge is co-constructed about learning and living in ways that are local, inclusive, ethical and democratic.” – BC Early Learning Framework 2019.
Spaces still available for the 2021 – 2022 school year! Please get in touch for more information.

Vision: Every child and family is unique and should have access to an inclusive and respectful child care experience.
Policy: MPCCA child care programs embrace diversity and celebrate environments of acceptance, respect, understanding and inclusion. We commit to learn, understand and appreciate each person’s unique attributes, abilities and cultural history to ensure that each child is recognized, reflected and valued in our programs. Our educators support the unique abilities of each child to ensure they reach their highest potential. MPCCA works with BC Centre for Ability and other community partners to enhance our ability to support children of all abilities through training and consultation.
Families must give one month’s written notice (or e-mail to [email protected]) to the Preschool Teachers when withdrawing their child from the Preschool program. Families are required to give notice by the first calendar day of the month. For example, if you decide to withdraw your child from the program for September 1st, then you must give one month’s notice on or before August 1st. Withdrawal notices are not permitted for the months of May and June. April is the last month to withdrawal, which means your withdraw notice would have to be in by April 1.
