2016-2017 Preschool Special Events

Vancouver Start Smart Preschool has special events and traditions which are important community building opportunities for preschool families.  Most importantly, these events give parents an opportunity to observe their children at preschool and participate in their accomplishments.  Here is an overview of calendar dates to enable your planning /work schedules as needed.  Throughout the year we will update and remind you of these events through the monthly newsletter and by email.
