About Us

At Dunluce Preschool, it's Time For Play!

At Dunluce Preschool our philosophy is that children learn best in a safe environment that nurtures their interests and skills, and encourages them to learn through play.

Why Us

Dunluce Preschool Society (DPS) is a registered preschool program that is offered to children aged 3-4 years old, 2 or 3 days per week.  Our program encourages children to grow and become more independent; to learn more about the world in which they live through song, play and field trips; and learn to express themselves in a safe environment. Kindergarten readiness is also a part of the program for our older children.

Teacher/Child Ratio

At DPS we are licensed for a maximum total of 21 children per day, but for quality purposes, we aim to keep our numbers at/or under 20 for the 4-year old class (M/W/F AM or M/W/Th PM) and at/or under 15 for the 3-year old class (T/Th AM).

DPS has a minimum of one paid staff member, with enough parent help to ensure we fall within Alberta Government Daycare guildelines.  Children are never left alone and are provided with a great amount of guidance and support.

Facility

We are located in the beautiful Dunluce Community League hall, at 11620 – 162 Avenue in Edmonton.  We have a well-equipped classroom plus a gymnasium, kitchen and playground, all providing wonderful learning opportunities.
