About Scarboro Community Preschool

We are community-driven and parent-run program established over 25 years ago.  We are located in Sunalta Elementary but our preschool program is run separately.  Our program allows the parent an opportunity to participate in your child's learning.  

Parents participate by:

  • Bringing a healthy snack on pre-determined days 
  • Optional classroom volunteering
  • Choosing a preschool executive position on the Preschool Committee (i.e., executive, play dough, toy cleaning, special events etc.)
  • Being part of the decision-making for the preschool at parent meetings (held in the evenings once every two months)
