At Discovery Preschool we aim for each class to participate in 2-3 field trips per year. In the past these have ranged from trips to the fire hall and Granary Road, to in-house visitors like ARF (Animal Rescue Foundation), yoga lessons, and a soccer coach!
A care giver is always welcome to attend field trips and for travel we also coordinate car pooling if needed. Parents are given notice at least 1-2 weeks before the trip and have the option to opt their children out of the event as well.
Special In-House Events
Throughout the year we like to invite family and care givers into our class to celebrate with us. Here’s a list of some of our common annual in-house events:
- Halloween Party
- Christmas Concert – followed by family activities
- Mother’s and Father’s Day events
- Year End Wrap Up Party
Weather pending we like to make regular trips to the park and local outdoors to let the kids learn and play outside!
Annual Year End Art Show
This is our big fundraiser for the school where each child has a special piece on display for silent auction. It is an event for the whole family that is hosted outside school hours and is always a lot of fun!
In 2019 we introduced a Welcome Parent Social in November. It was a great success and builds on our value of community by introducing parents to each other and our board members. We also had multiple silent auction items which raised money for the school!
This year’s Parent Social will be on November 26, 2022 at 7:00 PM at the Dorset Pub & Eatery (1637 37 Street SW).
