Welcome to Parkcrest Preschool

Parkcrest Child Care Society has been established since 1996. We are a non-profit society and a registered charity. Our teachers are fully qualified, licensed and have many years of experience. For more information about Parkcrest Preschool, please click here.

Each month you will receive a bulletin to inform you of activities planned for the month, as well as information and dates to remember. There will be no preschool on the following elementary school professional days; the school age care program will need the facility on these days. The preschool staff use these days for planning, meetings, classroom and toy cleaning etc.

Welcome to a new school year!  Each month you will receive a bulletin to inform you of the activities planned for the month, as well as information and dates to remember.

Newsletters will also be posted on our website: www.parkcrestpreschool.ca

JUNE 2016 NEWSLETTER

It is hard to believe that we are writing our June newsletter!
We had fun exploring the stories The Paper Bag Princess, and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We enjoyed musical experiences such as “Peter and the Wolf” by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, painting to music, and made rain sticks.

QUEENS PARK GYM TIME:

On June 7th and 8th all the classes are invited to a fun Gym visit.  We hope that you can join us!

Located in the Queens Park at First Street and Third Avenue, New Westminster.

Qualified instructors will be leading small groups and our staff will also be there with the children.
There is a fee of $5.00 for attendance and is non refundable.

*Just so that you know*-There is an adventure playground, spray park, and petting zoo in the park. (children will be in your care for these areas) A great place to go visit afterwards!
