Preschool is a play-based program which gives children from the ages of 3 to 5 the opportunity to play and socialize with others. Preschool offers essential play and learning activities, as well as the opportunity for early screening of developmental milestones by Alberta Health Services Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, and Physical Therapists. 

Preschools are not funded by school boards, nor are they regulated by the Education Act. However, preschools often partner with schools as the facilities are available and the opportunity for collaboration can benefit everyone.


Preschool classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

For the 2022-23 school year, classes begin on Tuesday September 20, 2022 and end on Thursday, June 16, 2023.

Preschool closure dates and holidays will coincide with those taken by Andrew School and can be found on the EIPS 2022-23 calendar.


Fees for the 2020-21 school year have been waived due to generous donations and provincial COVID-19 support money.
