  • Program registration runs 12 months/ year 
  • Each child must have diapers, wipes, a sippy cup and a change of clothes and inside shoes that can be left in their cubby.
  • All infants bring their own snack and meals for their day in labeled containers. This is in the interest of all the children being introduced to food at different ages and times.  
  • Infants would be graduated to toddler when a space becomes available in the toddler group.  We cannot guarantee this would happen as soon as your child is of toddler age.   
  • The fees charged in the infant room  are proportional to the staff to child ratio needed to continue to licence the room.   
  • Discounts cannot be given if your child becomes of toddler age while in the infant room.

School Age Program 

The Kinder/School Age before and after school program will be an extension of the school day designed for children 4+ years old. The Kinder/ School Age full days (PA Day, March Break, Summer etc.) are structured similar to our preschool day - allowing for morning and afternoon snack, lunch, art, sensory, outside and gross/fine motor activities. 

Understanding the impact a full school day has on the children; our program provides a needed change of pace after the school day in a relaxed atmosphere. Our program provides opportunities to teach children how to make responsible decisions, how to manage risk and how to respond to conflict. Children have opportunities to engage in: structured and unstructured activities, co-operative games, brain teasers, crafts, free play, and outdoor play in order to satisfy the need for individual and active play. 

The teacher/child ratio is 1:13 for Kindergarten and 1:15 for School Age.
