SD67 is pleased to be offering an afternoon preschool program commencing again in September of this year. This program will run out of our Columbia Strong Start classroom. The September cohort will be for children who are 3 or 4 years old and attending Kindergarten in September 2022. The intention of this group is to have Monday – Friday attendance from 12:00pm – 2:45pm but some families have elected to attend part-time on Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Tuesday and Thursday. This is dependent on available space.
It is important to note that this opportunity is a byproduct of a grant from the Ministry of Education, and we anticipate the funds might run out sometime during the upcoming school year (hopefully we get the full year). As such, we have yet to set an end date for this pilot program but want all participants to be aware this is the case. As soon as we have determined an end date, communication will be shared with participating families ahead of time. As a means of stretching this pilot if we can, we are charging $250/month for full time participation with a pro-rated cost for part-time children. Further details will be made available regarding payment and subsidies in August.
Please direct any further questions or to register for the limited spaces remaining, please call Kayla Bate at 250-770-7700.
