Toddlers

Our Toddler program is designed to promote social skills and independence in children. Here is an example of what to expect in a typical Toddler class:

Tuesday and Thursday AM Toddler Program

All children in the toddler program must be 18 months old by the start of school. There is a maximum of 10 students per class and supervision is provided by two teachers (one RECE and one Ontario Certified Teacher).Toilet training is NOT required.

* Effective July 1, 2018, fees are currently reduced for toddlers ($1.50/day) and preschoolers ($1/day) as a result of the Region of Waterloo’s Fee Reduction Pilot. The pilot will run until December 31, 2018, but fee reductions are intended to continue into 2019 and beyond. In addition to the Fee Reduction Pilot, the preschool also received a One Time Affordability Grant from the Region of Waterloo which has allowed us to further reduce fees by approximately $3.64/day on average.  This reduction is not expected to continue beyond June 2019. The Fee Reduction Pilot  and One Time Affordability Grant are funded by the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada.
