After 34 years serving the children and families

of Burnaby and Vancouver

Advantage Preschool will be closing it’s doors in July 2020. 

We would like to take this time to thank the local community and the countless families we have come to know so well since 1987.  The incredible support, trust and friendship we have exchanged has made our work both fulfilling and meaningful.

We are both very proud of the legacy we leave behind.

Welcome To Advantage Preschool, Serving Burnaby Since 1987

Advantage Preschool is an award-winning centre for preschool education with an impeccable reputation for providing an exceptional learning environment for young children. Each child is entitled to quality relationships through social interaction, mutual respect, verbal stimulation and positive role models. We support an emergent curriculum, which allows each child to be sparked by their own curiosity and participate in the direction of classroom activities.

Our programs are socially engaging, cognitively challenging and personally meaningful to each child, as we seek to support growth in all areas of development and build the foundation for a love of learning that will lasts a lifetime.

Ellen and Laura taught my two very different kids to reach for the stars in their own unique way. I will cherish our Advantage Preschool memories and all of the beautiful photos and artwork that perfectly captured their preschool experience. Thank you for all of your incredible support, thoughtful advice, and, of course, your caring natures.
