Pre-School Registered

Pre-school registered programs happen at various times during the day and the week. These programs do require registration and participants are encouraged to attend all scheduled sessions. They are generally 8 weeks in length. Programs that are independent (child attends on their own) are funded by the United Way and the interactive (parent/caregiver & child attend together) are funded by the City of Toronto. Generally the registered programs for pre-schoolers are one (1) hour to one and half (1.5) hours long. Early Years staff will incorporate a variety of materials and age appropriate learning activities for the children.
