Welcome to The Shorty List, the Metro Vancouver website that gives parents the scoop on daycares, preschools, and elementary schools.

We have the hard facts - including satisfaction survey results, daycare sizes, class demographics, test scores. We know it's not just about the numbers though. It's also about your stories, feelings, and perceptions - the words that complete the picture sketched out by figures and test results. That's why The Shorty List provides a space for parents, teachers, and owners to share info hard to find anywhere online. Real-life reviews of daycares and schools. Scoops from parents on the inside. We want to give you the word on the street, the playground talk between moms, and the confab between dads.

This is the destination for parents to learn more about Metro Vancouver daycares and schools, and also for facilities to reach out and connect with families.
