Our Mission

Edelweiss is celebrating 36 years of immersive Preschool, Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs in Calgary.


Our school is named after the Edelweiss flower, a symbol of lasting love and adventure. True to our name, our mission is to instill an early love of learning and curiosity in our students.

Our Learning Approach

We believe children learn best in a nurturing environment where their ideas are valued and curiosity is encouraged.


 Through a blend of structured curriculum and open-ended STEAM learning opportunities, our program has been designed to spark curiosity, creativity, and to help our students develop a greater sense of confidence.

Margaret & Walter truly care about encouraging little learners in a fun & educational way like no other preparatory school in the city. The amazing teachers at Edelweiss are focused on creating a positive & caring environment for young children. My daughter loved the art, the music & of course, Captain Science's experiments were out-of-this-world!

I believe my children starting off at Edelweiss for early preschool years, completely changed their future in education. The skills they learn at a early age here set them up for success through to grade 12!


I highly recommend this school.

My kids are going into grades 2 and 4 and they still share their happy memories of Edelweiss. The learning set them up for a love of reading, science and music and they got used to having classmates in a well-supervised setting. The special events (field trips, Christmas performances and Mother's Day songs) have really become cherished memories for the whole family.
