Who we Are:
Terwillegar Community Preschool (TCP) operates at Terwillegar Community Church on Towne Centre Boulevard, right in the heart of Terwillegar Towne. This year will be the 8th year of offering provincially licensed preschool programs for 3 & 4 year olds.
We feel it is our responsibility to nurture our children in all areas: physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual. Throughout the year, our curriculum and resources will support all of these areas of development, including teaching Biblical principles and values.
We will have a wide variety of books, toys, games, art supplies, and other materials which will support each month’s theme, as well as literacy awareness and numeracy concepts. Each month, we will also be working on various “character development” education.
Our curriculum is taught from a Christian perspective and will teach a broad range of skills and concepts within a monthly theme, including a component of character building education.

Children are placed according to their birth year. For example children eligible for the 4 year olds class would be born in 2015, and 3 year olds would have been born in 2016.
Classes for 3 year olds are offered on the following days and times:
The Registration Fee is $60. Monthly Fees are $130.
Classes for 4 year olds* are offered on the following days and times:
The Registration Fee is $60. Monthly Fees are $160.
* Fees also apply to those 3 year olds that start the class before turning 4.
TCP does not hold an open house prior to registration day. Instead we have "Meet the Teacher" days once your child has been offered a spot and completed the registration process. Pictures of our classrooms and monthly themes can be found on our facebook page.

Registrations are received on a "first come - first served" basis, and are subject to a confirmation process. Each class has an enrollment limit. Once a class is full, you will be placed in the next available class of your choice. In the event that all classes are full, you will be placed on a waiting list. Positions could become available if earlier registrations are not confirmed in time. Since demand is expected to be high, we ask you to be patient while we process registrations. You will be notified via email if your child(ren) has a space reserved, or if you have been placed on a waiting list. Registration Fee and first month tuition are due upon confirmation of enrollment.
