Beginning in September 2023 and ending in June 2024, the year-long, play-based curriculum provides parents with an affordable opportunity to support their child’s healthy growth and development during their early years. The program’s experienced educators deliver a personalized learning experience, guided by the BC Early Learning Framework, with a focus on creativity, imagination, language, literacy, confidence and independence.
The popular program was most recently voted ‘Best Preschool’—as part of Westcoast Families’ ‘2022 Family Favourites’ list—and recognized in the Dec/Jan 2023 issue of their monthly magazine for the accomplishment.
“Social interaction is critical for a child’s healthy development, especially during their early years. We’re very pleased to offer to a safe and nurturing environment for children through our world-class preschool program.” said Alex Kincek, Community Service Coordinator, Parks Recreation & Culture at the City of Surrey.
Open houses will be held at various City of Surrey preschool locations to learn more about the program, view the space, meet instructors, and ask questions about your child’s education plan. They’ll take place on January 21, 2023, January 24, 2023 and January 25, 2023. Find a complete list of locations and times.
The program’s registration fee is based on the number of program days that your child is scheduled to attend each month using a daily rate. Fees may be paid upfront or monthly, through an optional payment plan.
The Provincial Government recently announced new parent fee reductions that allow child care providers to pass along significant fee reductions to the families of our Licensed Group Care Pre-Kindergarten Programs. Families may also qualify for additional assistance through the Affordable Child Care Benefit for licensed programs or the Leisure Access Program.
