It takes a valley!

Together, we've created 24 critically needed childcare spaces. 
Thank you for bringing Wild Wapiti Playschool to life.

Thank you to all the organizations and individuals that donated funds, time or items so far. 


Our doors are open, your support still makes a difference.

Grants, funding and donations of time and goods are critical to making our dollars stretch so we can create a sustainable high quality childcare experience, AND value our incredible educators through livable wages, benefits and a positive work environment. 

To access the Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative to benefit families and the Wage Enhancement for our team, our fees must not exceed a region-wide fee-cap. These caps are set based on historical averages, and do not factor in a specific community's high-cost of living for example. The Kootenays has one of the lowest caps on average across the province.

Lots of ways to get involved


Whether you're keen a bottle sorting pro, consider yourself a gardener, or perhaps are handy with a drill (or an allen key) we likely could use your help.

We'd love to hear from you. 

Donate toys and books. 

If you're rehoming toys or books, please consider donating them to Wild Wapiti. We focus on toys and classroom items made from natural materials as much as possible.
