HOW DO I add MY CHILD(REN) to the waitlist or enrollment?

Please visit our registration page here. Your child will be added to the waitlist once you fill out our online form and pay our non-refundable $50 waitlist fee. A Centre Director will be in contact with you shortly after. We typically offer confirmed spaces for care within 1to 3 months of your desired start date. 

Enrollment depends on space available. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to arrange for a tour. A spot can be offered for your child(ren) if it is available, so no waitlist fee is required. Upon enrollment, a non-refundable deposit of $450 is due to hold the space for your desired start date. If it is not available, you can join the waitlist for the next available space. Please contact a centre directly or email/phone us for availability.
