About Us

Little People’s Preschool has been a part of the Kerrisdale Community for over 40 years. Each day at Little People Preschool, our 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 is a hands on learning environment. 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.

Teacher Philosophy

We encourage self awareness, imagination, self respect, and being open. We do this so that each child may enjoy and understand their surroundings and peers, allowing them to flourish as individuals. We offer an open creative environment to encourage the growth of each child in their physical, emotional, intellectual, and social skills. We share our years of experience and knowledge with the children and the children share their learning with us. We seize upon endless teachable moments and so provide a full flexible program for each child to enjoy and use at their own pace. With our guidance and encouragement, each day is a new day and every day is a day for learning in these early years.
