Playing is Learning!

Each day at Vancouver’s Little People’s Community Preschool, the teachers include and encourage a hands on program full of opportunities to expand on each child’s sense of wonder, and to answer the never ending questions of how and why do things work? Little People’s has been a vital part of the Kerrisdale community for over 40 years.   View classes here.

Here we play to learn and learn through play. In surroundings that are bright and colourful, areas are set up to encourage all types of play. We are a busy and active group, questions are asked and we are always there to answer. Our school encourages each individual to grow and become aware of others. Emphasis is placed on being considerate and learning that each child has an important place in the group. We promote and expand on children’s self awareness, self confidence, inquisitiveness, socialization, and fitness. Together the parents and teacher are a team that is always there for the children.

Registration for new families for the 2021-22 school year will open on February 20, 2021.  Under covid-19 restrictions, we cannot hold our usual open house.  We are instead giving tours on Saturday, February 20, 2021 by appointment only.  To book an appointment for that day or to ask any questions about our programs, please email us at

Children from our program go on to a variety of schools in the Vancouver area, including Kerrisdale Elementary (Main and Annex), Maple Grove, Quilchena and Kitchener, in addition to private schools in the area.

Childcare subsidies are available.

“We’ve been at Little People’s Preschool for four years and have enjoyed every minute! The teachers bring all their creative energy to the classroom, allowing the children to grow and learn through playing and interacting with the other children…We’ve met so many wonderful families. It’s been an amazing experience for everyone.”
