Enrollment is conducted on a first come basis. Parents can submit an application for enrollment at any time throughout the year by completing and submitting our application form, which can be found by clicking the Apply Today button.
Our regular admission times are during July-September, and then throughout the year as spots become available due to families changing circumstances.
Waitlist Application Fee
There is a $25 application fee payable by cash or cheque at the time of submitting your application.
Please note, submitting an application form does not guarantee a space for your child. Please contact the Manager and inquire about availability and waitlist lengths.
When a space becomes available and is offered to a family, the family will be required to pay a deposit in order to hold the space. The deposit will be applied to the last month of your child's attendance with Head Start Pre-Kinder, before they leave for Kindergarten.
Our deposits are $300 for a full-time space and $150 for a part-time space.
If circumstances require your child to withdraw earlier than the end of PreK 3-4's school year, we require a one month's written notice by the end of the previous month before your child's last month in order to refund your full deposit. For instance, if your child's last month is February 28th, we would require written notice before January 30th.
Once offered a space and registered, parents are asked to fill out a Pre-Authorized Payment Form with allows us to deduct program fees directly from each family's bank account on the 1st of every month.
A tax credit of up to $7,000 for program fees and a Fitness Tax Credit of up to $500 may be claimed as a tax deduction under personal income taxes. Head Start Pre-Kinder will issue a tax receipt to each enrolled family at the beginning of every year.
