Welcome to Upper Lonsdale Preschool!

Upper Lonsdale Preschool (ULP) is one of the longest running preschools in North Vancouver.

Parents at ULP have the unique opportunity to be present in their child’s world and be partners in their children’s first educational experience.

Our mission at Upper Lonsdale Preschool is to offer a play-based program where all children are welcome to explore, learn and grow together. Preschool aged children have the opportunity to develop their social, emotional, physical and intellectual selves in a safe and caring child-centered environment that encourages self-esteem and independence, where tolerance, respect and consideration are given to all students. What’s best for each child and each unique class as a whole, direct the school’s curriculum.

Parents or caregivers have the opportunity to take on roles to help support their children’s experience at the preschool and parents are invited to enjoy time with their children by attending special seasonal class events scheduled each term throughout the year. These cornerstone events are child centered and give families a special way to connect with their child’s school experience and the school community. Parents are also invited to volunteer as a special parent visitor if they have something they would like to offer the class during group time; family or cultural traditions, special skills or passions, or any small project that excites you, science, art etc. Additionally parents can connect at the parent run Fall Parent Night, while volunteering at the community run Tree Chip Fund Raiser, at the parent run family Spring Fling picnic and after school playing at the park.

Come and see for yourself what unique and exciting experiences await your child and your family at ULP!
