Full O' Beans Preschool & Full-Time Care

Full o’Beans Preschool, operating since September 2013, is one of the programs for families and children at Saanich Neighbourhood Place. Our central location in the Gorge/Tillicum area of Victoria BC is easy to get to by bus, bike, car or even by foot.

Our child-centred, ‘learn through play’ programs offer:

  • Monday through Friday morning classes
  • 2.5 to 4 hour class options
  • Flexible schedules
  • Competitive rates
  • Family grouping
  • Sibling discounts
  • Healthy snacks made right in our kitchen
  • A ‘nature preschool’ class option.

Our mission is to provide high quality, accessible early learning and care experiences in a safe, nurturing environment. At this time, we have part- time preschool programs for children between 3 and 5 years old.


'Flex' Program:

Our ‘Flex’ program offers families the option to customize their preschool experience by choosing the days that work best for them with a 4 hour morning session. The children will enjoy free-play, art, stories and music, gym days, library visits, and outdoor time. This session has a strong emphasis on getting the children outside, and features as much as 2 hours each day out of doors, in our playground or in the ‘woods’ behind our location. Morning snack is included, lunches are sent from home. Open to 3-5 year olds, this 9am – 1pm program makes  a nice transition to the longer Kindergarten day.

Children must be 3yrs by September 1st to register in the Flex program.

'Classic' Program:

A traditional preschool setting, this 2.5 hour program offers a classic ‘Mon/Weds/Fri’ or ‘Tues/Thurs’ program schedule.

Free-play indoors and out, art and stories, gym days and library visits… all of this and more make a fun, engaging program for your 3-5 year-olds. Morning snacks are included.

All programs run from 9:00 am – 11.30 am. This shorter session often serves as an easy introduction to ‘school’ for children.

Children must be 3 yrs by December 31 to register in the Classic program.

Both our 2.5 and 4 hour programs are accessible programs, and we work with families to include children who need extra supports to attend preschool.
