|Ladysmith Preschool began in 1973, when a small group of parents got together to discuss the possibility of establishing a preschool facility in Ladysmith. At that time the parents worked together to find a location, collect materials and hire qualified staff. They sought community support and the encouragement and many other volunteers generously donated materials and money to make the preschool possible.|
Children Learn Through Play
Ladysmith Preschool continues to flourish today with hard work by the volunteer board, staff, contributions from the community and numerous fundraising projects.
We are a society under the British Columbia Societies Act. The Society Act requires that a society have a Board of Directors. Our Board of Directors are nominated, appointed or elected from the general membership of the society and as they are volunteers, they are not paid for their activities. The Board of Directors sets the program's direction and policies and is required to supervise the management of the affairs of the society.They are responsible for hiring the qualified staff that carries out the day-to-day operation of the program. The Board of Directors looks to the Staff as the liaison between the program and the board, as well as for quidance in all program related manners.
Our Philosophy is that "Children Learn Through Play"
