Welcome to Gilmore Preschool 2014/2015! We are thrilled to have you and your children as part of our group.
We are in a unique position this year as we are not certain of the status of the BC Teacher strike for this coming September. We are truly hoping that there is a settlement before September and that school is running as usual. However, because there is some uncertainty, we recently met as a Board to make a contingency plan.
For a variety of reasons, we have decided that should the teacher strike continue into September, we will delay the start of Preschool until school is back in. If this is the case, we will not cash your September cheque until preschool does begin. At that time, we will either cash the existing September cheques or collect new cheques, depending on the length of time that the start of preschool is delayed. We will, however, cash your fundraising cheque and the meeting cheque on September 1, 2014.
Upon completion of the strike, we will send out an email to let you know of the new start dates for your child/ren. It will still be gradual entry for the 3 year olds. Miss Fern, Miss Claire and Miss Gail have not been allowed into the school so will need one week of preparation time before preschool can begin.
As of today, we are planning for Gilmore Preschool to begin on the originally scheduled dates however these next few weeks will be crucial. We will keep you posted! Updates will be added to the preschool website as well.
Please enjoy the remainder of your summer and we can’t wait to see you and your children very soon!
Gilmore Preschool Society
Welcome To Gilmore PreSchool
On behalf of our Early Childhood Educators and Board of Directors, we would like to thank you and your family for considering Gilmore Preschool Society. The preschool prides itself in offering excellence in preschool programming!
Gilmore Preschool is a non-profit Society, founded in 1980 by a group of enthusiastic Gilmore community parents. Their energetic fund raising and canvassing of local community businesses assisted in the purchase of most of our original equipment. Over the years, we have been fortunate to have an extremely dedicated team of teachers and parents!
Gilmore preschool is not a parent-participation preschool; however, we are parent administered. Our Board of Directors is elected every year at our Annual General Meeting. As we are a small preschool parents are required to fund raise in order to help pay for in class visitors and special guests.
Update! School session is in and all classes are full. If you want info on registration please go to “registration” page.
