The North Dumfries Preschool Co-Operative Inc. was founded in Ayr over 30 years ago.  It was created by a group of parents who shared the core belief that parents are a child's first and most important teachers.  Our program is licensed by the Ministry of Education Program and serves children ages 18 months to 5 years old divided into age appropriate classes for toddlers and preschoolers.  These children are nurtured and encouraged by their parents who work in the classroom and by our wonderful teachers, helping them to get prepared for the kindergarten years.  The North Dumfries Preschool Co-Operative is funded in part by the Region of Waterloo.

We are currently looking of an energetic, positive individual to fill a part-time position at the Preschool.  NDPCI is a family focused, co-operative Preschool that participates in fundraising events and enjoys being a part of our community.
