Preschool-Aged Programs

Helping your child thrive

Our preschool-aged programs follow the HighScope concept; an active learning approach to educating young children that has proven to enhance development. Children are provided with a wide range of materials to expand their learning. The Early Childhood Educators plan experiences for children that encourage independent thinking, initiative and creativity.


Dandelions and Dragonflies is now a $10 a Day ChildCareBC Centre and caps monthly fees at $200 per month. Please visit our $10 a Day ChildCareBC Program page for more info. See Fee Schedule.

The fees for our Garibaldi Highland preschool-age program and our Brackendale preschool-age program are based on how much time your child is in the program.

“Staff were very friendly, helpful and flexible. Everyone has been excellent and professional.”

“It feels like a small community where everyone knows one another. Everyone is always friendly and it’s obvious they care about our children. I love the high scope approach.”
