At Calgary International Pre-School, children are encouraged to reach their full potential in a loving environment with dedicated teachers, where we believe that it is not only a child that enters our friendly school, but a family.
Each child’s achievement is celebrated in a supportive, confidence-building atmosphere laying the foundation for life-long learning. Our award-winning curriculum promotes holistic development of children and we follow a uniquely designed School Readiness Program to prepare children for their formal school years. We believe that learning should be fun and that teacher, parents and children are perfect partners to facilitate successful learning. We care greatly for our environment and instill these principals at an early age.
About Calgary International Pre-School
The founders of the Calgary International Pre-School (CIPS) are strong believers in the Bright Green environmental movement. Which is an ideology based on the belief that the union of technological change and social innovation provides the most successful path to sustainable development. Bright Green environmentalism aims to provide prosperity in an ecologically sustainable way through the union of the new technologies, improved environmental design, and global citizenship. The combination of well-built communities, new technologies and sustainable living practices, can actually improve the quality of life even while ecological footprints shrink.
The early stage of the human life is the perfect start to well-built communities and sustainable living practices establishment. This is where the idea of CIPS was born. CIPS was established in 2010 as an ideal place for practicing the bright green environment. Finding a safe, eco-healthy, clean-air atmosphere, warm, nurturing environment that promotes the growth and development of the child as a whole.

CIPS mission is to provide our children with the highhest quality education and childcare possible in a warm and friendly environment, offering them a loving home away from home. At CIPS we provide a green start education in an eco-healthy, environment friendly, clean-air atmosphere that encourages social, emotional, physical, intellectual, creative growth and development of the child as a whole.
To be a leading institute in Green Start early childhood education. To promote the development of intellectually inspired and environmentally literate children. Our goal is achieved by developing a daily sense of commitment to our environment by focusing on age appropriate activities that contribute to the physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development of each child.
At CIPS we use a child-centered versus teacher-directed approach to allow our preschoolers to learn about the natural world in an atmosphere that allows freedom of choice and movement, early investigations, informal conversations and spontaneous initiation of activities. At CIPS we recognize and support each child’s prior knowledge, skills, attitudes, learning pace, personal traits, interests and goals, and preferred learning styles.
