Education is Not Only for Children

The famous sculpture and painter Michelangelo last recorded words before he died at the age of 88 were, “I’m still learning!” Inspired by his perspective, we want to help parents flourish with meaningful and direct access to ongoing knowledge and education. Below are three key ways we provide current, relevant and community building information for our families.

Knowing what and how your child is learning at school is really important. At Wind & Tide, we strive to support and equip parents the best we can through monthly videos that update you on what is happening in your child’s classroom. Check this page regularly!

Almost every unit and theme taught in Wind and Tide's preschool and childcare programs is supported by dynamic music created for optimum learning, memory retention and fun! Wind & Tide has four professionally produced albums, created to enhance our signature curriculums and to help families share in the joy of learning alongside their preschoolers. Find them here at our Wind & Tide store and enhance you child's learning through music.

“We want to support and equip parents the best we can because we know the most determining factor to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents.”
-- Rachel Cram

For the first two decades of Wind & Tide, parent meetings, ideas sharing sessions, and family events were a regular part of our school year. As we have grown and expanded across the Lower Mainland, meeting face to face has become more challenging.

Activated well, social media is a wonderful resource for maintaining connection! Beginning in January 2021, we embarked on a commitment to focus on connecting with families to share, encourage and support each other through our Wind & Tide social media platforms and groups. Wind & Tide staff will host these sites with a creative and engaging flair we believe you will grow to love.

We are very excited to journey with you in this way.
