Our Kingfisher Preschool program has been caring for children since 1987 and is licensed by the Vancouver Island Health Authority.
Children between the ages of 3-5 can attend two or three day a week preschool classes for 16 children.
We are wheelchair accessible and welcome all children, valuing the individual needs of each child and integrating diverse care into our program.
At Kingfisher, we believe that children learn best in a safe, secure environment with age appropriate challenges to their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development.
Our aim is to nurture your child’s natural creativity and curiosity through play. We encourage the development of a positive self-image and high self-esteem with open ended activities where exploration, discovery, and repetition can happen at the child’s own pace.
“I like the down-to-earth friendly environment, the warm nurturing nature of the instructors, their approach-ability and patience, and genuine interest in the children.” – Kingfisher Parent
