Welcome to Dalhousie Community Preschool!

Dalhousie Preschool is a co-operative, parent-run Preschool that operates under the umbrella of the Dalhousie Community Association. It offers a warm and accepting environment for your child to begin his or her school career. Dedicated and experienced teachers and assistants recognize each child as an individual and make him or her feel worthwhile. Our Reggio Emilia inspired, play based program has been serving the community for over 30 years!

All staff are certified teachers or child care providers who are certified in first aid. We have access to the large auditorium/gym at the Dalhousie Community Centre where we play games and use a variety of gym equipment every class.

We have ongoing registration for the 2021-2022 school year, space it limited.  If you are interested in our programs, please review all forms and requirements on the Registration page and contact our registrars for availability.
