Pre-Kindergarten (Ages 3-5)
Now offering full days starting in September 2023! — See details are below and on our &&press release&& page.
Ever since we opened in 2008, ArtsCalibre Academy has strived to provide children with all the skills necessary to excel throughout their educational careers, instilling in them a lifelong desire for learning.
We believe that creativity sparks a child’s curiosity, enabling them to fully open themselves to every learning experience. The Arts are the creative vehicle for this process. Students enrolled in our Pre-K program will acquire the specific skills needed to excel in Kindergarten, within a safe, respectful and enriching group learning environment. Classes are kept to maximum of 20 children supported by 3 to 4 experienced teaching staff, resulting in an extraordinary student/teacher ratio.
The program runs from September through June each year and closely follows the Greater Victoria School District’s school year calendar, but with only two closures for Professional Development (Pro-D) days in November and February.
Enrollment is generally limited to children between ages 3 to 5 at the start of the school year in September. Children under 3 years old by that time must reach age 3 by December 31st in order to be considered for the program. We can on occasion make an exception to this rule, subject to approval by our Pre-Kindergarten Manager and/or Principal; please contact us for more information.
We suggest that families book a tour or attend an Open House before proceeding with registration, as our $100.00 annual registration fee and first month's tuition are non-refundable. Want to know more right now? Check out our Virtual Tour at the bottom of this page.

When you're ready to register, you can go directly to our Preschool Admissions page.
Families may choose from 2 to 5 days per week:
- Two Class Option: Tuesday/Thursday
- Three Class Option: Monday/Wednesday/Friday
- Four Class Option: Add Tuesday or Thursday to the Three Class Option above
- Five Class Option: Monday through Friday
NOTE: Subject to availability, exceptions to the above weekday combinations may be made to accommodate families' unique work/child care schedules. Please contact us to inquire.
These rates are all-inclusive and represent the total cost of tuition — there are no taxes or any additional fees for supplies or regular in-class activities (beyond our annual $100.00 registration fee).
