Purple 'Potamus Preschool and Junior Kindergarten was established in 2002 by Dolly Asaria, Ashifa Lalani and Arzeen Kassam. Dolly has successfully owned and operated four daycares in Calgary since 1980 and graduated with a diploma (level 3) in Early Childhood education. She has extensive experience in teaching and management skills and is an active member of the Calgary Preschool Teachers Association. The philosophy at Purple ‘Potamus Preschool is to create a dynamic and welcoming environment that promotes lifelong learning. The program offers both self-directed and teacher directed activities that are designed to develop and enhance a child’s senses, in turn building the confidence children need for self-growth. Each child is respected as an individual and program plans are tailored to reflect their needs and concerns. Purple 'Potamus Preschool was recognized in 2010 as a Top Finalist for the Alberta Child Care Professional Awards of Excellence.
