What is a parent participation program?

Parent Participation Programs are different than other daycares or preschools, because our parents are directly involved.

Parents have the opportunity to be with their child once each month in the classroom during their mandatory volunteering shifts. Parents participate in the administration of their child’s daycare by working on parent subcommittees that support the program operation, such as helping with registration and enrolment; supporting HR, recruitment and retention;  managing parent volunteer schedules; helping with making playboy or filing art work; updating classroom calendars; or managing our parent social media.

Like all parent participation programs, we offer free parenting education workshops throughout the year.

What are your fees?

Our current fees and volunteer requirements can all be found in our Fees document.
