Preschool Programs in Surrey

The City of Surrey is the largest child care provider offering affordable, licensed, play-based preschools for children ages three to five years old. Our preschool programs run from September to June and our certified, early child educators aim to promote healthy growth and development for your child. Supported by the British Columbia Early Learning Framework, preschool programs are based on a responsive curriculum, encourage creativity, promote sharing and problem solving, and guide speech and language development. 

"I am very pleased with the preschool programs my daughter has taken through The City of Surrey. The staff are amazing and I feel comfortable knowing that my daughter is getting the best care possible." - Chelsea L.
