A licensed preschool program for three and four year olds located in Courtenay Elementary School

JumpStart Preschool is a community-based program sponsored by the Comox Valley Child Development Association in partnership with School District #71.

The hours are from 8:45 am to 11:15 am, Monday through Friday.


We believe that children learn through their play experiences. We offer a program that promotes play-based learning with a variety of opportunities to practice literacy skills, numeracy skills, social skills and to build self-confidence.


JumpStart Preschool is staffed by qualified Early Childhood Educators. The two staff members combined have over 30 years of experience in licensed early childhood programs in the Comox Valley.


Space is available for your child.  Please contact us for registration information.
