At Chilkat Valley Preschool we seek to strengthen children and the ties between family, community, and peers. Through a constructive play-based learning approach we strive to develop a life long, love of learning, as well as, readiness for the next level of education. 


Our vision at Chilkat Valley Preschool is to have a community where all children feel loved, respected, and encouraged to develop to their fullest potential.


Our program is planned to promote positive growth in the lives of all children. We will adopt a holistic play-base approach that enables each child to develop their social, physical, emotional and intellectual abilities. We know that each child is unique and special and positive early childhood experiences are instrumental for a child’s overall development in later life. Our program will promote and maintain a safe environment that creates an opportunity for children to develop and grow in a positive manner through appropriate role modeling and education.



*Themes are fluid and often change with the interest of the children.
