Enrolment is based on a first come first serve basis.

The preschool program follows the IQ principal Pilimmaksarniq and Montessori models, which encourages children to select their own hands-on materials of interest. Children are permitted to learn at their own pace and follow their curiosity.

"It is an internally driven and self motivated act in education," said Tessa Lockhead, co-founder of Pirurvik preschool.

The program has the capacity to serve 16 students.

The session begins on Jan. 13, 2020. It takes place five days a week, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The next available session will be in Sept. 2020.
