Your child must be 3-years-old by December 31st and fully toilet trained to enter the three year program.  Your child must be 4-years-old by December 31st to enter the four year program.  Enrollment may be possible throughout the year if space is available. If classes are full, you may request to be placed on a waiting list, through the Playschool Registrar.

After a reasonable period of adjustment (up to 3 weeks) parents are expected to leave the child in the care of the Playschool teacher.

If your child’s birth date falls between September and December, an adult MUST attend with that child until he/she turns 3-years-old.

Due to strict licensing guidelines, an adult-child ratio of 1:2 is in effect for all two-year-olds. This means one adult must be present per two 2-year-olds.  It will be the responsibility of the affected parents to pair up and arrange schedules to ensure sufficient coverage.  Each schedule must be approved in advance by the Teacher.

The Banff Rundle Playschool Association is a non-profit organization and cannot operate on a deficit. Accordingly, a class will not be held if fewer than ten students enroll at the commencement of the term.  If a class does not maintain an enrolment of ten students it is subject to cancellation upon one month’s notice.  All options will be explored to accommodate enrolment.

There is a $45.00 Registration Fee (payable upon registration) for both the three-year-old and four year-old programs. The Registration Fee is non-refundable from the time of registration.
