Established in 1981, Willow Park Preschool is a parent-run cooperative located in the Willow Ridge Community Centre in the heart of Calgary's southeast communities of Mapleridge and Willow Park. We are a fully licensed preschool that offers morning and afternoon programs for children ages 3 to 5.
Space is still available in morning and afternoon programs. Our exceptional teachers are committed to providing a learning atmosphere that encourages the social,
emotional, physical and intellectual growth of a child
as a whole. In order to achieve this, our students are
given the opportunity to learn through play throughout the day. We believe that play and socialization are a vital part of a child’s learning process.
Parental involvement is a key component to our school's success. Parents contribute to the school in various ways ranging from holding an executive position on our parent board to signing up for one of the many daily and weekly tasks that ensure our classes run smoothly. We have found that our school works well for both at-home and working parents. Grandparents and caregivers are also welcome to participate.
There are plenty parking spaces as well as bus service on Calgary Transit Routes 79 and 80. The parking lot and entrance to the preschool are on the east side of the Willow Ridge Community Centre.
