Our Mission at Wesbrook Parent Involvement Preschool

Our goal is to help children blossom socially, emotionally and intellectually, while having lots of fun along the way. We believe that playing is a critical part of early childhood development and should be used as the medium to develop these key skills.

At Wesbrook, parents play an important role as partners in creating a supportive and enriched educational environment. Through these goals and beliefs, we can help children build a solid foundation for the future.

Beliefs that guide our teaching:

• Preschoolers are continuously on the move, exploring their world with high spirits and a never ending supply of energy. A child’s ability to learn at this age is immense and we believe that children need many different ways to express themselves and a lot of opportunities to do so. (Reggio Emilia).

• Children learn through active involvement in play using all of their senses. Every child is creative, curious, powerful, competent and full of potential.

• Learning should be a natural, rewarding and fun experience. It should be based on children’s interests and developmental patterns.

Parents are an essential resource for a child’s learning. Collaboration between teachers and parents is key in creating a positive, supportive and enriched educational environment for our children..

• In demonstrating respect, basic values, and manners to children, we teach them to respect themselves, their peers and others. This fosters positive interactive relationships among children, parents, teachers and the community.

Established in 1955, Wesbrook Preschool is proud of its history of providing safe, quality care for young children in West Point Grey and the surrounding neighborhoods. Wesbrook is a parent involvement preschool where children – at an individual pace – learn and develop through play, while parents learn and grow in their abilities to be child educators at home, school, and in their community.

Wesbrook Preschool acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia and fundraising organized by parents.
