What is VICPA?
The Vancouver Island Cooperative Preschool Association supports 11 parent participation preschools on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. These member preschools are the Vancouver Island Cooperative Preschool Association (VICPA).
VICPA has been in existence since 1949. It has been an advocate for high quality early childhood education for children and professional standards for adults who work with them.
VICPA preschools meet or exceed provincial government licensing and safety standards. They benefit from being a part of the history, reputation, and network of the association.
The Vancouver Island Cooperative Preschool Association is an umbrella organization for preschools owned and operated by the members on a non-profit, non sectarian basis, which supports the parent membership with management skills training and manuals, the Early Childhood Educators with orientation and in-service training, and promotes parent education and parent participation in the classroom.
