About Me

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.
