A tangible display of God's renewing power

About our Burnaby Preschool

Our Philosophy:

Located in Burnaby, the preschool is a service and outreach to the community from New West Church. Our purpose is to promote a safe, nurturing, inclusive, educational environment while working collaboratively with Early Childhood Education/Special Needs certified staff, family and community agencies, honoring the diversity of those in our community.

We believe that all children are created in God’s image and are entitled to environments and opportunities that foster positive growth and development, building on the strength and individual needs of each child. We teach children basic Christian concepts as revealed in the Bible.

Parents are entitled to quality, family focused child care, which encourages supportive partnerships between family, school, and community.

The teachers are Christians and licensed Early Childhood Educators/Special Needs certified staff. Our facility is wheelchair accessible.

We welcome preschool aged children from Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam and throughout the lower mainland.


Our History:

“The Beehive” is an evangelistic outreach of the First Christian Reformed Church of New Westminster. The preschool is a non-profit preschool and operates under a committee of church members, by whom the staff is employed. The preschool began operating in September of 1988 and has been a ministry of the New Westminster Christian Reformed Church ever since. Preschool classes operate five days per week with 2 day, 3 day and 5 day per week options available.  All classes are open to both 3 and 4 year old children.  Classes are four hours in length and are held from 8:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.  We are closed Saturday, Sunday and Statutory Holidays as well as Christmas and Spring Break.
