About Daycare Daycare Curriculum Daycare Admission
"Do not teach a child to learn by force or harshness but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius in each."

Plato

"Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty."

Albert Einstein

"We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading."

B.F. Skinner

Admission

Enrollment

Enrolment is conducted on first come basis. Parents can submit application for September enrolment at any time throughout the year by filling a pre-registration form available online. You will be notified via email that your application has been received and informed of the status of your application. Our regular admission times are during September and July. Please note that we will be accepting 16 students between July and September for our JK 3-4 year old program. As many of our children do continue the program we have limited spaces available in our JK 4-5 year old program and in our summer program. We still encourage families to inquire and apply as some spots do become available due to families changing circumstances.

Application Fee

A $100 non-refundable application fee is required to secure a space for your child at the centre.

Deposit

Half of the monthly tuition will be required upon registration and will be applied to the last month of your child's attendance at Smilestones.

Payment Policies

Our program operates all year round, September - August. Families are asked to provide 12 post-dated cheques dated for the first of every month, which are required to be submitted to Smilestones one week prior to the start date.
