FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

When is the first day of preschool?

We start the week after Labour Day.  The three year olds start on Tuesday with staggered entry.  Check with your class to see when you come.  The four year olds start on Wednesday as a normal day.

What should my preschooler bring?

A back pack is a great way to transport indoor shoes to school as well as toting crafts home.  We suggest packing a change of clothes, including underwear, pants and socks.  Accidents do happen so a change of clothes will be necessary.  We have spare clothes on hand but not a wide variety of sizes or styles.

Should I pack a snack?

Snacks are provided by the preschool.  We serve fresh fruit and vegetables, a whole wheat cracker and water or juice. We are a nut free environment. Consult your teacher in regards to allergy alerts.

Do you celebrate birthdays?

Yes, we do.  A special snack can be brought to help celebrate your child’s birthday.  We suggest rice krispie squares as they comply with most allergy issues and are easy to serve.  Check with you teacher to set up a day that suits both of you.

Do you play outdoors?

Yes, weather permitting.  Always dress your child for the weather.

Should I call the preschool to explain an absence?

Please call us with any absence.

When are the holidays?

We follow the Public School Board holiday schedule.  We do not follow school board professional days off. Check your monthly newsletter or ask your teacher if you are unsure of the holiday schedule.

When do I register for next year? 

Please call our office (403) 217-5658.

Priority registration for currently enrolled parents and alumni is held in January of every year. 

Remaining spots are offered to the public at our Open house in February.
