About Saltspring Cooperative Preschool Society

The Salt Spring Cooperative Preschool Society was founded in 1977 by a group of parents passionate about “learning through play” and being involved in their children’s first school experience. Hundreds of Salt Spring families have upheld and evolved that legacy into the vibrant preschool we have today.

As a cooperative, the families with enrolled children run the school and support our Early Childhood Educators. Involving parents in the day-to-day workings of the school provides a very special opportunity for parents/caregivers to participate in their preschooler’s experience and build community.

Our preschool is a registered, non-profit, charitable society. Our funding comes from student tuition, grants, donations and fundraising. We are a licensed preschool and childcare facility, and a member of the Vancouver Island Cooperative Preschool Association.

We offer our preschool program four days a week, from 9am-1pm. Families can choose to enroll their children for two, three or four days. We also offer an optional Afternoon Care Program from 1pm-3pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    I have been writing a column for Fishbowl Magazine for over 9 years. As some of you know, I write in a humorous tone about the quirky island we live on. However, if you are expecting this next piece of writing to be funny, you should surf in another direction. Allow me to start with […]

    by on April 13, 2018

    FireSmart is a wildfire safety programme with an economical and common sense approach. The key concept of FireSmart involves removing or reducing the amount of burnable material (think “fire fuel”) from around your home. The area within 10 meters (30 feet) of your home is the “Priority Zone.” If you remove fire fuel from this […]

    Why are there so few women in politics? Why is public space, whether in the street or on social media, still so hostile to women? Is the #MeToo movement signalling a real shift in society’s treatment of women? From Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign to the quest for equal pay, and from the transgender movement to […]

    by on April 5, 2018

    Our cold spring continues…with the soil too soggy to work in many gardens, especially after this recent heavy rain. If you squeeze a small handful of soil and it stays together in a compact clod, then it is too wet to handle; it should be moist but still easy to crumble apart after you squeeze […]
