They might not know the name of the occupation that they want to excel at when they grow up, but from the very beginning children know what they love to do.
Provide your 3 - 5 year old children the very best start to their education and careers - enrol them in the Grande Prairie Regional College Children's Centre Demonstration Preschool.
Children will have the opportunities to learn about themselves and the world around them, all while enjoying innovative activities with a group of peers.
The GPRC Children's Centre Demonstration Preschool is the only local program of its type that is run by educators.

About the Program
GPRC's demonstration preschool is operated by the Early Learning and Child Care program of the College, and provides a model for excellence in early childhood education for the Grande Prairie region.
As a demonstration preschool, we view early childhood as an essential foundation for the development of children's social/emotional, physical, cognitive and lingual growth. It is a supervised environment where Early Learning and Child Care students can observe and interact with children and their families.
The Centre runs Monday through Thursday for children ages 3 - 5 years old.
Registration is ongoing, with the next term beginning September 8, 2014 and running until May 28, 2015.
Morning sessions are from 9:00 am - 11:30 am and afternoons are run from 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm. Part time spots are also available, please call for further information.
The cost is $1,900 for full time attendance for the year, which includes a $100 non-refundable deposit due upon registration. Monthly payment plans are available at $200/month, plus the $100 non-refundable deposit, due at registration.
The program, which is staffed by highly qualified, caring teachers and ELCC program graduates, is licensed by the Northwest Alberta Child and Family Services Authority. We offer daily outdoor play in our innovative playground, snacks and gym time each week.
