Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What are the fees?
  • The program is priced according to the number of sessions per week your child is registered and whether your family can commit to required parent volunteer days.
    Program fees for both programs can be paid all at once on September 1, or with three post-dated cheques dated September 1, January 1 and April 1.

    Please see the INFORMATION PACKAGE for other fee and deposit details.
  1. Are parent helper days required?
  • Families have the option to choose whether or not to volunteer based on the two program fee schedules. Parent volunteers are an essential part of our playschool in order to meet required adult to child ratios in the classroom. These days are a great opportunity for parents to observe your child's progress and development, and your child will be looking forward to sharing these school days with you. You will have the option to select your preferred Parent Helper days on your registration package, or you can sign-up at the Open House (August). Parent Helper days are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. Even if your family has chosen the non-volunteer program option, we still encourage parents to come spend time in the classroom as the children look forward to sharing their school experience with mom or dad.
  1. Do volunteers require criminal record checks?
  • All volunteers interacting with the children must have a current criminal record check completed prior to their helper day. A letter will be provided to you at the Open House to ensure fees will be waived when requesting the criminal record check from the RCMP. If you require additional forms for additional volunteers, please ask the teacher.
  1. What are the responsibilities of Parent Helpers?
  • Parent Helpers provide snack for the class, assist with classroom set-up, help the children with projects, help with clean-up, set up snack and escort children to the washroom. A complete list of parent helper duties is posted in the classroom.
  1. I have younger children, can I bring them on my Parent Helper days?
  • No, siblings are not allowed to accompany parent volunteers, but child care is available through APFA on select days. If you require child care for additional children during your parent helper time, please speak with your class coordinator to learn what options may be available to you.
  1. Does my child need to be potty trained?
  • Yes, all children must be toilet trained prior to their first day of class.
