MacEwan University- Currently we are the only approved field placement destination for MacEwan University Early Learning students in Fort Saskatchewan. We believe this is an essential partnership in providing unique opportunities for our students and supporting the growth of our local post-secondary students.

About A Fairytale Beginning
After operating a day home for 6 years and taking Early Learning at MacEwan University I decided to take a risk and make good on my dream of opening a preschool. 5 years later we have amalgamated with Happy Day Preschool and moved into our new large centre. We continue to be blown away by the support and love of Fort Saskatchewan. They say it takes a village to raise a child and I couldn’t be more proud to be part of this one.Our program aims to give our students a well-rounded program that balances formal learning and learning through play to give them a solid foundation for heading into kindergarten. I am delighted that the children have the most amazing teachers collaborating to provide such a comprehensive program.


Our Philosophy

Building a strong foundation for your child’s social, academic, and  creative development.

Our History

Opened in 2011, by Lisa & Lee Makin in the Fort Mall. Amalgamated with Happy Day Preschool in 2013 and moved into new facility in the newly renovated Fort Station in 2016.​
