The Dorval Preschool is a co-op whose activities have been taking place at the community centre since 1958. We offer learning through play programs to children ages 3 and 4. The preschool is a non-profit secular organization that is administered and managed by parents.

We employ two preschool teachers who plan and coordinate our program, as well as a creative dance specialist. Parents and guardians all get a turn to have the extraordinary opportunity to help the teachers and to experience the learning dynamics with their child, about one to two times a month depending on the number of children enrolled. It is also the perfect occasion to see how your child interacts in the classroom. With the teachers’ help, we offer children a stimulating and friendly environment through activities that prepare them for the school system. Finally, thanks to their active participation in the program, parents show their children how much they care about their educational experience.

Families manage the school themselves, which is one of the great advantages of the co-op. Children benefit from the cooperative participation of their parents, who also have the opportunity to share ideas and form new friendships. We have found over the years that our co-op fosters a sense of community in the children as well as their parents.

Parents and guardians all get a turn to have the extraordinary opportunity to help the teachers and to experience the learning dynamics with their child, about one to two times a month depending on the number of children enrolled. It is also the perfect occasion to see how your child interacts in the classroom. With the teachers’ help, we offer children a stimulating and friendly environment through activities that prepare them for the school system. Finally, thanks to their active participation in the program, parents show their children how much they care about their educational experience.

Families manage the school themselves, which is one of the great advantages of the co-op. Children benefit from the cooperative participation of their parents, who also have the opportunity to share ideas and form new friendships. We have found over the years that our co-op fosters a sense of community in the children as well as their parents.

The Dorval Preschool is a co-op whose activities have been taking place at the community centre since 1958. We offer learning through play programs to children ages 3 and 4. The preschool is a non-profit secular organization that is administered and managed by parents.

We employ two preschool teachers who plan and coordinate our program, as well as a creative dance specialist. Parents and guardians all get a turn to have the extraordinary opportunity to help the teachers and to experience the learning dynamics with their child, about one to two times a month depending on the number of children enrolled. It is also the perfect occasion to see how your child interacts in the classroom. With the teachers’ help, we offer children a stimulating and friendly environment through activities that prepare them for the school system. Finally, thanks to their active participation in the program, parents show their children how much they care about their educational experience.

Families manage the school themselves, which is one of the great advantages of the co-op. Children benefit from the cooperative participation of their parents, who also have the opportunity to share ideas and form new friendships. We have found over the years that our co-op fosters a sense of community in the children as well as their parents.
