JUMPSTART PRESCHOOL

JumpStart Preschool is a community-based program serving 3-5 year olds. At Jumpstart Preschool, we believe children learn through their play experiences. We offer a program promoting play-based learning with a variety of opportunities to practice literacy skills, numeracy skills, social skills and to build self-confidence.

JumpStart Preschool is sponsored in partnership by the Comox Valley Child Development Association and School District #71. The preschool is located in Courtenay Elementary School and operates Monday through Friday from 8:45 am to 11:15 am (following the School District calendar).
