Lyndhurst Preschool is closed today. We have followed the Burnaby public school closures and have also decided to close the centre. Stayed tuned for updates for Thursday. Enjoy!!
With the anticipated accumulation of snow tonight and tomorrow we are aware of the driving situation for some parents and their ability to get their children to Lyndhurst Preschool. Please check the website at 8:00 tomorrow morning for an update on whether we will be closed due to the snowfall.
During the month of February we will be continuing to focus on winter as well as incorporating the colours of red and pink, the heart shape and healthy habits into the program.
In keeping with our aim not to focus on the commercialism of the holidays we will be keeping Valentines’s Day very low key. We will be offering face painting and have a special treat at snack time on February 14th. We ask that children do not bring Valentine cards for their friends. Instead we will be focusing on the friendship aspect throughout the month.

Announcing Changes at Lyndhurst Preschool
Due to the increased demand for an extended preschool session Lyndhurst Preschool will be operating a 3 day a week program on Tuesdays, Thursday sand Fridays for 3 ¼ hours from 9:15 to 12:30. This program will accommodate 3 and 4 year old children.
Our current areas of the preschool program will be expanded in addition to extra calendar and phonics, nature walks, science and math activities and music and movement.
The cost of this program will be $350 a month with a registration fee of $75. The provincial government is currently offering an Affordable Child Care Benefit. Families earning up to $111K may be eligible for these savings. The website is gov.bc.ca/affordablechildcarebenefit. This site also has an online estimator.
It has always been our priority to offer a quality program providing the children with an environment that creates the love of learning and we will endeavour to continue to do so.
If you know of any families who may be interested in our program please direct them to this website or have them call the preschool at 604 861 9198.
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year! We hope you all enjoyed the holidays and time with family and friends.
We would like to thank everyone who gave us gifts. They were really appreciated and we enjoyed all of the treats over the holidays.
Below are lots of pictures of different activities during the month of December. I have divided them into the morning and afternoon groups. Enjoy!
It was difficult to choose just one group photo with Santa!
