what we’re about

our classroom 

Welcome to the Ladybugs!  This classroom is filled with so much fun and discovery!  For many, this is their first school experience and we strive to create a warm and welcoming environment. In this class, we focus on learning through play and social and emotional development. 

This classroom provides a wonderful opportunity for older 2 year olds or younger 3 year olds who aren’t quite potty trained yet to join preschool!

The teacher/student ratio is 2:10.

our core values 

In our classroom, we teach important values like loving others, kindness, compassion, honesty, generosity, forgiveness, 

and self-control.

We are so blessed to have Lisa on staff at Valley.

What Parents are Saying

“Our daughter joined the Young 2’s Ladybug class in September 2021 and we could not be happier. Due to Covid, Clara had not had many experiences outside of our home so on the first day we were excited and nervous.  Clara is thriving with Miss Lisa and Miss Maria. They knew how to quickly settle her nerves those first few weeks and now she happily wanders into the classroom (and asks to go to school on her days off).  

 At home, she is singing new songs, naming shapes, colours and starting to count. At her conference, I really felt that her teachers knew Clara well, pointed out her strengths and were very attentive to her needs. The classroom is bright, clean, cheerful and spacious. 
On the administrative side, everything seems very organised. The communication from the school is fantastic and I get the impression that  the school staff are very caring and work as a team to support the teachers and each other.
VCP it is a great preschool and we are very grateful to be here.”  – Emily D.
