Play. Learn. Grow.
We strive to bring creativity and imagination into the preschool classroom. These experiences are offered through the use of circle times, art, literacy activities, special events, outside play and field trips. MEI Preschool offers an atmosphere through which children will develop a healthy self-esteem, confidence, desire to learn, an appreciation and consideration of others, a responsibility to care for our environment. MEI Preschool also offers a Christ-centered environment that includes Bible stories, active worship, and prayer time.
MEI Preschool staff are all licensed Early Childhood Educators and/or Assistants and each hold a current First Aid certificate. Fraser Valley Child Development Centre provides one-to-one support for children in the preschool who require additional support. Practicum students from local colleges/universities may participate from time to time in the program as part of their professional training.

Tuesdays & Thursdays at 12:15 - 2:45pm
This nature immersion class provides an outdoor learning environment that allows each child to grow in understanding and respect for Christ and His creation. We use MEI’s property across from the elementary school as our classroom and are outdoors rain or shine. The child-centred curriculum empowers children and provides them with an inquiry based learning opportunity to connect with their environment, allowing children the freedom to gain confidence while facing new and developmentally appropriate challenges.
