Britannia Preschool

Britannia Preschool (3-5 Yrs.)
Know You Can! The Little Preschool That Could

"Virtual Tour" of the Preschool


Highly experienced, qualified and Licensed Early Childhood Educators will develop a rich and meaningful child centered environment in which children can learn and grow in all areas of development. Our program will include the exploration of Artists Throughout History. By using hands on experimentation and exploration of a variety of materials, techniques, ideas and information, we will experience styles developed by influential artists throughout history. Children will experience arts and culture from around the world, and practice creativity, and freedom of artistic expression.


Our Centre welcomes students from several post-secondary schools to do their practicum learning and training within the Preschool program. It is our ongoing mission to actively participate in the development of high quality Early Childhood Educators. All students and volunteers undergo a thorough criminal record and health check prior to acceptance into our facility. Their bio's are posted at the preschool entrance, where you can learn about their individual backgrounds and interests.

Registration will take place in the Spring (for external families). If the formal registration is missed, please call 604.718.5843 for more information. Registration is on-going throughout the school year dependent on availability of spaces.

Our Philosophy:
Preschool is a place for children to grow and flourish intellectually, artistically, physically, socially and emotionally. During this process children develop language skills, test their abilities, acquire new skills, understand concepts and develop an awareness of themselves and others.

Please refer to our program brochure for more details about our program. Pick up a brochure at the Preschool or the Information Centre.
