Play-Based Approach

Our preschool has embraced a play-based approach where our children are encouraged to explore their environment. Play-based learning provides opportunities for children to develop a sense of the world around them through inquiry, exploration, interaction, and problem solving. Children that attend play-based preschools gain valuable skills that prepare them for the K-12 education system which is focused on the very skills that play-based learning promotes.

We welcome you to explore our website and contact us with any registration enquiries.

Parent Involvement

At Dunbar Memorial Preschool, parents/caregivers are invited to volunteer in the classroom as they wish, but duty days are not required. Spending time in the classroom provides parents/caregivers the opportunity to observe their child in a school setting and see how they interact and learn.

Registration is now open with limited spots
