Carrot Seed Preschool
Welcome to the web site of the Carrot Seed Preschool, where children can wonder, discover, imagine, construct, and learn through play. We have been operating in the Cordova Bay Neighbourhood of Victoria, B.C. since 1988. Our programs are child directed and teacher supported. View information about our current programs, including days, times, and fees, here on the Programs and Fees Page. We encourage children to make decisions independently, with our guidance and support. Learn more about our philosophy and vision, and check out links to research and other organizations here on the Philosophy and Vision Page.

Finger painting is a pleasurable, messy and creative art activity. This activity, which involves much more than merely spreading paint with the fingers, should more accurately be called hand painting. Finger/hand painting encourages children to make direct contact with the medium, there is no brush to separate the artist from paint. Children enjoy the cool, slimy texture!
