Luna Park Preschool Inc. is committed to providing Okanagan families with a child-centered approach to early learning in a collaborative elementary school atmosphere, and a safe, inspiring environment that encourages exploration, wonder and creativity. We welcome and honor the cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of all families and we aim to provide continuous, confidential, open dialogue with families in order to assist and support in any way we can when meeting the needs of a child in our program. We are here to offer strategies, resources and our vast knowledge in order to make this the best early childhood experience for your child.

It is essential that learning is set up in such a way that is appropriate to each individual child’s need, age, abilities, and necessary supports. Our early-childhood program engages children with developmentally appropriate activities including a vast amount of literature and an emergent thoughtful play based curriculum that focuses on the “whole child.” Through creative exploration and hands on play, we support each child’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual and creative growth by providing children with opportunities to engage in meaningful activities that can occur on any given day, making everyday events an integral part of their learning experiences.

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) opportunities are integrated intentionally into our program, which help to round out our enriched play based preschool program. We adhere to a development-oriented approach to learning that makes the child’s interests and capabilities the starting point of education.   We also believe in keeping children connected to nature and their community is an important element for understanding freedom, growing independence and belonging. Nature and natural elements are integrated into the children’s indoor and outdoor activities. By providing children these opportunities they gain the understanding and respect for their world and how their actions impact the world.

Our goal is to provide a meaningful, creative and positive play-based learning experience for your child. Keeping health and safety a priority along with a classroom filled with thoughtful and limitless learning opportunities, we will nurture wonder, confidence and ultimately a love of learning that will set your child up for success and foster competence as they transition into their primary school years. We want to provide experiences that will further build skills that will strengthen children’s:

  • Ability to self-regulate
  • Bravery to take risks and speak up
  • Increase children’s vocabulary, language and communication skills
  • Empathy
  • Self-confidence
  • Ability to collaborate and sharing perspectives and ideas with one another
  • Connections as a classroom community and greater world
