Early Learners Playschool

This play-orientated, learning program for three-and-four year olds promotes learning in a friendly, positive and fun-filled atmosphere, and is geared towards preparing your child for kindergarten. It provides a good balance of structure and free-play time as well as themed activities. To further enrich leaning, children will explore the community, participate in seasonal celebrations, and attend field trips. This program is available at two different recreation facilities in the City.

Registration, Payment and Withdrawal

 Registration

To register for the Early Learner programs please call 604-469-4556 or visit us in person at the Recreation Complex. Students must be three or four years old prior to December 31. The first months payment is non-refundable and due at the time of registration.

Children who are registered and complete the 3-year-old program are guaranteed a spot at the same location and time for the 4-year-old program. Registration is still required for the reserved space.

Once registration has been completed, you will have seven working days to provide us with:

  • payment plan information
  • signed paperwork
  • a Birth Certificate or Care Card for age verification
 Payment
Fees can be paid in full or a monthly payment plan is available. Monthly payment plan can be made by credit card (Visa/MasterCard/ Amex) or Debit Mastercard and VISA Debit. 

Fees are divided into ten equal payments; therefore fees are the same each month and not prorated regardless of the number of holidays/professional days observed or date of registration.

Your pre-authorized payment will be deducted from your selected account on the first of each month. If the first falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, payment will be processed the next business day. If the fee has not been authorized by the third working day of the month, this may cause your child's participation to be suspended until full payment is received

Additional nominal fees may be required for fieldtrips throughout the year.

 Withdrawl

We require a 30-day withdrawal notice. There is no refund for partial months due to vacation or illness.

Withdrawal requests must be made directly to our office 604-469-4536.
