Our mission is to provide an exceptional, community-based preschool within a nurturing environment that fosters each child’s intellectual and social-emotional development.
We are a creative, play-based community preschool where children have the opportunity to learn through an environment that lays the foundation for future education. We promote peer-teacher-student relationships that develop children’s self-esteem and self awareness. Teachers encourage children to explore their environment through various sensory stations and enrichment programs which promote child-directed learning at a pace that meets each child’s needs.
The MLCA preschool is a parent-run cooperative and we ask for parents to get involved by volunteering in class and through small administrative or operational roles.
Set in the heart of the vibrant Marda Loop, our bright and cheerful preschool is positioned opposite the community centre, playground, ice-rink, library, fire hall, and community gardens.
For information on the 2019/2020 Season, please come to our Open House on Tuesday, January 22nd!

The 2019/2020 registration period will be open from February 8 – 15, 2019 (closing at midnight). We have a rolling registration process (no waiting in lines or crashing registration systems) and preschool spots will be determined by lottery. There will be a non-refundable $75 registration fee for all applications. To register, you must be a MLCA member.
All current students are guaranteed a spot in the same time slot for the 4-year-old program. Priority is given to:
1. Existing students and siblings of existing students
2. Siblings of alumni within boundaries (a sibling previously attended MLCA Preschool)
3. In bounds registrants (South Calgary, River Park, Altadore, Garrison Woods)
4. Out of bounds registrants should space permit
All applications received within the registration period will be notified via email by February 25, 2019 to confirm if you’ve secured a spot in the preschool or if you have been placed on the waitlist. Those who have secured a spot will receive a follow-up email to complete subsequent enrolment forms and pay a non-refundable $130 supplies fee by March 1, 2019.
