Tapiola Preschool Co-op – Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday mornings


The Tapiola Co-op Nature Preschool Program runs 3 mornings a week – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays.

The program is offered by the main educator, an assistant and is supported by a parent each morning.  Parents whose children are in the program take turns helping in the program.  Each parent will be a support person approximately two mornings per month. This program is for children age 2.5-4 years old. 

Our Early Childhood programs welcome young children into a gentle environment full of beautiful, natural materials and open-ended toys that invite imaginative play.

Seasonal celebrations, festivals, and a rich community life encourage healthy, age-appropriate self-awareness and respect for others.
Children’s curiosity and self-expression are nurtured through free play, while teachers model kind and respectful interaction and interest in others, supporting social development.
Our programs balance freedom and structure, and our students engage in meaningful activities  that promote support self-regulation, develop large and fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, and strengthen flexible thinking, creative problem-solving, and emotional resilience.
Tapiola Nature Centre is a beautiful property of forest, fields, a creek and the North McIntyre River.  We have created a nature kinder – garden for the children to play and explore next to our newly renovated field house.
