Preparing Your Child For Kindergarten

North Vancouver Recreation and Culture operates three preschools. Our focus is on preparing your child for kindergarten in a positive learning environment that creates unforgettable memories and builds self-confidence and life skills. 

NVRC Licensed Preschools

Play is at the heart of our programs. We believe that play-based learning motivates children to explore, experiment, discover and problem solve. Social skills, language skills, imagination and emotional development are also fostered through play. Our preschools include both child-initiated and teacher initiated learning. Inspired by BC’s Early Learning Framework, we see children as strong, capable and full of potential and recognize the important role families play in children’s well-being and learning. Our preschool environments support the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and creative development of each child. Our preschools are led by Early Childhood Educators and have a staff-to-child ratio of 1:10, with a limit of 20 children per class.
