Our program operates three days per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) for 2.5 hours each day.

Children entering in September must be 3 by December 31st, while those turning 3 before the end of March are welcome to start in January.

Please note that the morning class primarily accommodates 3-year-olds, while the afternoon class is geared toward 4-year-olds.

For the 2024/2025 school year starting in September, class times are as follows: AM classes from 9:15am-11:45am and PM classes from 12:45pm-3:15pm.

Open House

We don’t currently have any Open Houses planned for 2024.

Our virtual open house is viewable anytime to help give you a feel for our preschool.

You can also view our Instagram and Facebook pages for more insight to our daily activities.

To experience the warmth and uniqueness of our preschool first-hand, our teachers are happy to show prospective families our space at the end of a preschool day. Please email us at, to schedule an appointment.


For the 2024/2025 school year, monthly fees are $299, which includes tuition of $287 and an optional $12 monthly snack fee.

To secure your child’s place, a registration payment of $389 is required, comprising a non-refundable registration fee of $90 and a non-refundable tuition deposit equivalent to one month’s fees ($299). This deposit will be applied to June 2024 tuition.

Tuition remains consistent for both AM and PM programs, and ULP participates in the CCFRI program, allowing a reduced monthly fee.

We operate an optional snack program ($12 per month). Currently, all families registered at ULP have chosen to participate in the snack program. Families not participating in the snack program are required to provide nutritious snacks twice a month for the entire class under the guidance provided by our teachers.

A $75 cleaning deposit is collected, which is refundable at the end of the year if your family participates in the annual clean-up day.

Childcare Subsidy

Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative (CCFRI)
The CCFRI is a provincially funded subsidy program that reduces the cost of registered preschools and child care to all BC families regardless of income status. Upper Lonsdale Preschool is registered in the Child Care fee Reduction Initiative and parents do not need to apply as the reduction is already reflected in our preschool fees.

ULP is a licensed preschool. If your family household income is under $111K yearly your family may be eligible for a subsidy to assist with a portion of the preschool tuition fees through the ACCB. Families must apply directly with the BC Government and renew yearly.
