About Us

Wildwood Playschool is a non-profit, parent run, play-based preschool serving Calgary for over 45 years. We focus on the development of social, gross motor, and fine motor skills along with kindergarten preparation.

Wildwood Playschool is a fun and inspiring place to begin your child’s education.  We operate out of the Wildwood Community Centre and offer semi-structured programs for 3 and 4 year olds. Wildwood Playschool has an extensive variety of age appropriate equipment and materials and offers free play along with art, crafts, music, stories and gym time.

Wildwood Playschool was founded 45 years ago, in the basement of a Wildwood home, on the philosophy of a parent-run playschool education. It has continued its commitment to the family/school relationship since that time and is now a registered non-profit. Regular involvement of parent volunteers contributes to the children’s playschool experience and allows for a high adult/child ratio.

Much research has been done on the importance of play-based learning. Here are some resources you might find interesting.
