Waiting list Policy
At any time when the Centre is full, a waiting list will be kept on file. Within each category of enrollment (see below) priority will be given to those who have been on the waiting list the longest. If you are interested in placing your child on our list, please email the centre with your child’s name, date of birth, your address, phone number, contact information and we will place your child on the list. Please be aware that our list varies and you may be on the list for a minimum of 1-2 years before you can have a space. Be understanding that there are families ahead of you and/or siblings that may have a space prior to your child’s space on the list.
(Note: the staff or administration will not tolerate abusive or inappropriate language or behaviour) We understand how frustrating it is to find childcare for your family. We will do our best to accommodate you and help you find a childcare solution in our centre or elsewhere.
Priority of Enrollment
Enrollment will be offered on the following priority basis:
PRIORITY GOES TO CHILDREN LIVING IN THE COMMUNITY AND WITHIN SCHOOL/CHILDCARE BOUNDARIES
1. Children enrolled advancing to another age group.
2. Children of WPCC employees.
3. Children of WPPS employees.
4. Siblings of children enrolled.
5. Non-community – children living outside the community.
Please note that:
