"If having my third child registered in the Glenbrook Preschool Society isn't enough proof that it is an amazing school, I don't know what is! From the dedicated, well-trained staff to the rich play-based atmosphere, this school is exactly what I want for my young inquisitive minds. I have been impressed with how engaged my children are in the classroom, how warm and welcoming the staff are, and how ready each of my children have been/will be for Kindergarten. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to anyone looking for a solid foundation for their children's first steps into a journey of life-long learning."

Tips for Choosing a Good Preschool

When choosing a pre-K program, look for signs that the school is employing best practices:

  • Kids have ample time to explore, play and be creative using a variety of materials
  • Teachers are warm and responsive & encourage conversation and participation
  • Kids feel safe and secure
  • Teachers set limits about acceptable behaviour, but also work with students to help them label, understand and cope with emotions

"Whatever happens in children's first educational experiences sets the stage for receptivity for what comes later - so if you inherit a nurturing and interesting environment in preschool, that's what school becomes for you"

Support and Resources

Dear Parents,

As part of our efforts to meet our children's education needs, we have partnered with Maximize Early Childhood Services (MaxECS), which provides opportunities for free Early Childhood Screening and Assessments. MaxECS will provide a Certified Teacher, a Speech-Language Pathologist, and, in some cases, an Occupational Therapist to screen and assess young children ages 3-5 years to identify possible areas of focus in both speech and language and fine or gross motor and sensory development.

If the team identifies any needs, your child might be eligible for assistance that Alberta Education funds. This funding is designed to get children ready for grade school. Parents must provide consent for screening. Parents will be contacted regarding any findings from the screening and assessment. Once identified, programming may include therapy for speech and language concerns, support for regulation and kindergarten readiness skills. 

Consent to the Speech-Language/Occupational Therapy screening and assessment provides permission for our therapists to screen and assess your child at Glenbrook Community Preschool in early September.  Please return all consent forms as soon as possible using the link below.


If you have any questions or concerns or want to discuss your child’s specific needs, please contact the classroom teacher, Brenda Miller. 

If you have any specific questions in regards to the Alberta Education funding, please contact Education Director Lauree@maxecs.org, or visit https://maxecs.org/about-us/
