Our Philosophy

Our Preschool Education Program is based on the belief in the innate ability of children to learn when provided with a stimulating and supportive environment.

We inspire creative and intellectual growth through play-oriented learning in a safe and nurturing preschool setting.

Our Centre

Arbutus Grove Children’s Centre has a long history of providing outstanding preschool programs to the Victoria community.

We previously operated as Goosey Gander Preschool for forty-six years before moving to our new 1.4 acre site in September, 2004.


Take a tour of our preschool with a gallery of our beautiful outdoor play area and our unique indoor themed class rooms.

Each area promotes discovery and learning through a variety of activities to let little imaginations grow and discover.
