How do I enroll my Child(ren) into Kepler Academy?
Registration is easy! A form can be found here and deposit may be paid here. Your child is considered registered once a one-time fully refundable deposit has been paid. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to arrange for a tour prior to registration.
Where are you located?
Our first location is now open at 16826 107Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5P 4C3. Two more locations, College Plaza (University of Alberta) and Sun Life Place (Downtown Edmonton) will open in Summer 2018.
Can I add my unborn child to the waitlist?
Yes, you can add your unborn child to the waitlist with the payment of a deposit. Please note, your child will be added in priority sequence for your desired start date.
Are meals served? What happens if my child(ren) don’t like what is being served?
Yes, all meals are served as part of our meal plan. Kepler Academy will serve a morning snack, Lunch, and afternoon snack. We follow the Canada Food Guide very closely and have enlisted a nationally recognized nutritionist to cater our menu. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
Typically, children will at least try what is offered. They see their friends eating and tend to follow along. We will work closely and communicate openly with parents to ensure your child is well nourished at all times. If your child has dietary or religious restrictions, please ensure our staff is made aware.
