Our Preschool Has Moved to a Great New Location!
We’re excited to welcome you and your children to our wonderful new space this fall in the heart of Mount Pleasant!

St. Giles Parent Participation Preschool is a creative, play-based program located in the Riley Park/Main Street/Hillcrest area of Vancouver, BC. Our 3 year old program operates three days a week (Tues/Wed/Thurs) from 9:30-11:30, and our core 4 year old program runs Mon, Tues, Wed, with an optional fourth class on Thursdays, from 1:00 – 3:30.
Our preschool is an enriched, child-centered environment designed to stimulate cognitive, creative and social development. We have two outstanding teachers with years of experience in the field of early childhood education. Our preschool is a spacious, well-equipped facility. It has a separate gym with a large selection of climbing apparatus and gross motor enhancing toys. We are a community of child-oriented, like-minded parents who value a hands-on involvement in our children’s early education. Our program is a great opportunity to enhance your parenting skills.
We are currently accepting Waitlist registrations for our 3 year old program. Spaces are available for our 4 year old program. Contact us to arrange a visit and to register today.
