Kids love attending Pre School in Didsbury.About the Didsbury Preschool Society
The school was established in 1978 by a very dedicated group of parents, whose purpose was to provide their preschool children with the opportunity to learn through constructive play and the development of social skills, prior to entering the regular school system.

The Didsbury Preschool is a non-profit society, operated by a Parent Executive Board, who meet monthly to administer and update the operation of the school, and to table events or concerns of the school. Fundraising is a very important aspect of the Preschool's financial budget.

Generally speaking, the Didsbury Preschool follows the same school calendar as Ross Ford Elementary, Westglen Middle School, and the Didsbury High School, so when Chinook's Edge School Division schools have holidays, so will the Didsbury Preschool.

Our Mission Statement
The Didsbury Preschool is a licensed, registered, not for profit organization that provides a supportive, safe and age appropriate learning environment for children three to five years of age. The goal of the Didsbury Preschool Society is to provide a program where preschool children can learn through play, thus fostering the academic, social, physical, and emotional development of the preschool child.

Our Philosophy
Our program is a "Learning and Succeeding Through Play" format. This means that through free play such as, but not limited to: water table, sand table, play dough, dramatic play, etc. and through structured play such as, but not limited to: stories, songs and our music program, gym days, crafts, worksheets and games the children learn early academic concepts, forming the basics for their journey to educational needs and discovering the world.

Our Students
Children attending Didsbury Preschool must be a minimum of 36 months of age and must be potty trained. In addition to Educational Assistants and other Professionals, we require one additional Parent Volunteer at the school at all times. If there is no Parent Volunteer, there is no class.

It's Fun Here!
•   Our students take a number of field trips throughout the year.
•   Special parties are held to celebrate various holidays including Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter and the Year End Celebration & Graduation Party.
•   Once a month, Preschool operates at the Elks Hall, thanks to the very kind sponsorship from the Didsbury Elks Lodge. Kids love Gym Day!

Graduation time in June is a favourite for students, parents, and grandparents.
