FAQs

How can I arrange a tour of Sherwood Park Preschool?

Please contact us by phone (902-445-3983) or email (info@sherwoodparkpreschool.ca) to speak with our Director. We would be happy to show you around our facility and great outdoor play space, and tell you all about our programming.

How can I enrol my child in one of the programs at Sherwood Park Preschool?

Please download the registration forms available on the website. You will need to complete all four forms for each child you want to register. You can drop the forms off in person at the facility, located at 22 Carroll Lane, or scan and email them to info@sherwoodparkpreschool.ca

*The registration fee must also be paid to secure your child’s spot in one of the programs.

Is there a waiting list?

Yes there is. If we do not have space available for your child immediately we can place you on a waiting list to let you know as soon as an available space opens up. 

You may also want to be put on a waiting list if you are looking for a child care space far in advance from when you will require it (for example, you have a 6 month old baby that you would like to start in the toddler program when they turn 18 months of age)

How far in advance can I hold a spot for my child?

We generally like to fill any available child care spaces as soon as possible but will hold a spot two to three months before the date you are wishing to start. 

If you are seeking child care far in advance of the time you will require it, we can sometimes predict whether there will be a space available at that time. In some cases we will hold these spots (with completed registration and fee paid) farther in advance. 

Examples:     

  1. we know when children who are currently in the toddler program will be old enough to graduate into               the preschool class, leaving available space for a child in that age group, and
  2. each year we know the number of senior preschool children who will be moving on the Elementary                    school in September, leaving multiple spaces for 3 and 4 year old children. We are able to register                    and hold these spots well in advance.

Please contact us to discuss your needs and we will do our best to accommodate you as long as there is a space available.

Is there a registration fee?

There is a $75 registration fee (per family, if you are registering more than one child at the same time), required at the time of registration for the toddler or preschool programs. We will only hold a spot once the registration fee has been paid.

There is a $50 registration fee (per family) required at the time of registration for the school age program. Because this program operates on an annual basis, this registration fee must be paid each year with registration. The registration fees for the school age program go directly towards the purchase of new materials for the program start up in September.

Do you have part time spots?

We do offer a limited number of part time spots. The minimum days a child can be enrolled each wee is two days. The availability of part time spaces varies, so please contact us to discuss your particular needs. We will do our best to accommodate you as long as there is a space available.
