Tumbleweed Playschool Society was founded in 1980 by a group of parents wanting to provide opportunities for their children to play and learn together. We continue today as a parent-governed non-profit society, with programs delivered by highly qualified & experienced educators.



Our Preschool Supervisor, Jennifer has been with Tumbleweed since 1991.

Completing her Infant-Toddler Certificate in 1988 and her ECE in 1991, Jennifer moved to Merritt in 1990 and joined Tumbleweed soon after.

Jennifer is a passionate educator who brings both long-time experience and current eduction to Tumbleweed’s programs, and has been an integral part of leading our school for two generations of students!


Our preschool assistant, Jane, joined Jennifer at Tumbleweed in 2021.

Jane completed her ECE certification in 2008 and has worked in family childcare, preschool and daycare settings since 2003. She and her husband relocated to Merritt in 2011 and have two children.

In addition to her experience and education, Jane’s love of teaching and passion for helping each child find successes throughout their day are valuable components of our children’s experience at Tumbleweed.
