Pets at Preschool

Here at Community Montessori Preschool we are fortunate to be able to bring our pets in to the classroom. We believe that having dogs and at other times different animals in the program is an integral part of our Montessori environment and can teach lessons such as empathy, compassion, respect and care of animals.

The staff bring their dogs Fynn, Chico and Piper to the school on a daily basis and at times we have visits from enrolled parents pets and special visits from different agencies such as the BC Guide dogs. Some of the pet visitors we have had in the past have included; rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils and hermit crabs.

When parents come to the school for a visit they will be received with a warm welcome from not only the staff but also our four legged friends!
