Old Japanese Kindergarten Building

Our building was originally built in 1939 as a kindergarten for the Japanese community that homesteaded the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows area. It was part of a three building complex located at the corner of Dewdney Trunk Road and what is now called 232nd Street. The Japanese community was dislocated during World War II and ownership of the building passed on.

Esso generously donated the building for $1 and it was moved to its current site at 11739 223rd Street by the efforts of the CEED Centre Society (formerly known as the Fraser Information Society), a large cast of volunteers and generous donations by local businesses and citizens.
