for Registration 

Starting September 2017. Activities are geared toward having fun, learning new things and helping pre-schoolers be more prepared for attending a full day school setting. Introducing things like: intro to FRENCH, early word recognition and pronunciation, letter recognition – name writing, shape, colour and number recognition cutting on the line, shoe tying, doing up buttons and zippers (small muscle coordination) communication, turn taking and waiting in line, personal space and social skills practice, friends and cultural differences (skin, eye, hair colour, music, food, celebrated holidays, etc) safety indoors and outside.

Our true goal is for the children to enjoy themselves, be comfortable and learn to function well in a group setting like the classroom. Parents will regularly receive progress information and at the end of the year, be given their child's folder with activities he or she participated in when familiarizing themselves with the concepts and tools we've introduced.  Children are required to bring a health conscious lunch and water bottle. We provide snack. Currently we are operating on Tuesdays and Thursdays only but may add days as enrollment numbers increase.

  With the increase in student population, there is less space in the schools for childcare programs. 
   Wee Care is in the process of applying for grant money to purchase 3 portables.
   Two for Valley View, would provide 48 before and after school seats and at least 16 preschool spaces.   AND allow us to operate during the summer. 
   One at Royston Elementary, 24 seats and 16 preschool spaces. 
Please include us in your prayers, hopes, best wishes, etc. If you are able, please drop a letter at any one of our centers, stating the importance of having licensed childcare in your community. Every bit of support helps.
   Our goal is to provide a quality, welcoming space on school grounds, dedicated to providing childcare year round. 
This would create an added benefit of a space to offer parenting programs and other community events when the children are in class and the portable isn't occupied. 
                          Thanks so much.
