St. Albert Preschool
Our St. Albert Preschool is operated by a parent-run Executive Council, elected by the St. Albert Creative Society members (parents of registered children). The new Council is formed at the Annual General Meeting which is held in early September shortly before the start of the St. Albert Preschool year. Parents are encouraged to participate, as without an Executive Council the Preschool could not function. The Council is responsible for developing and maintaining regulations and policy relating to the conduct and operation of the Preschool. This includes sustaining and ensuring that the Preschool and Society business, at all times, is conducted in strict conformity with provincial and municipal laws and regulations and current Society bylaws. The Council meets once a month from September to June.
Please consider joining the Council – it is a great way to get involved in your child’s preschool education and to meet people!
