Girls and boys learn differently. Females typically can sit still longer, have more rigid personal standards in the classroom, and learn better visually. Most importantly, girls tend to intellectually develop earlier than boys do. This unequal development is one of the most commonly cited rationales supporting all girls' preschools over coed ones. These schools give instructors an opportunity to craft classes that are appropriate for young girls, and therefore allow them to best match the needs of students.

Preschool is an especially important time in your child’s life, as it is his or her first exposure to formal education. As such, you should choose a school that best suits to your daughter’s learning style. A single sex school can do just that.

There are all-girl preschools across Canada, such as in Ontario, BC, Quebec, and Alberta. This includes the cities of Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Montreal, MississaugaOakville, Vaughan, and Brampton.

Here are some additional distinct advantages of all girls’ preschools:

Paying for an All Girls Private Preschool

Today’s private preschools continue to become more affordable than they have ever been. Our Kids’ handy list of tips for paying private school tuition could help you come up with strategies to make tuition payment affordable. You could also use some of these helpful hints:

  • Financial aid: If you could demonstrate clear financial need, then some private preschools might provide you with a bursary. Both preschools themselves and charitable organizations may offer you financial aid.
  • Sibling discounts: These increase according to the number of children you send to a given preschool.
  • Flexible payment plans: Some private preschools will allow you to spread tuition payments out over a longer period of installments.
  • Tax deductions: There are two very common private preschool tax breaks. First, sending your daughter to an all girls' religious preschool might count as a charitable donation for which you will receive a tax break. Second, if you enroll your child in a preschool for students with special needs (read our special needs schools costs guide), then your provincial government might help pay for it (i.e. tuition could count as a medical expense).
