Preschools & Out of School Care

Preschools
Our preschools are designed to develop the whole child intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally and cognitively. We provide a positive and encouraging learning environment where children of various cultures and backgrounds share and learn about each other.

All preschool registration requires in-person registration at the facility requested. When registering, please bring your child's:
  • Birth Certificate
  • BC Care Card
  • Immunization record
  • Photo (required by some centres)

Fees are payable by cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or cheque and are due at the time of registration. An additional registration fee may be applied. Monthly post-dated payments for the remainder of the school year are accepted.

The preschool term is from September 2012 through June 2013 with a winter and spring break vacation. Licensed preschools have qualified ECE preschool instructors. All licensed preschools require that children must turn appropriate age by December 31, 2012.

Registration for the 2012/2013 school year is ongoing in all facilities. Preschool viewing times are available, please call the facility located in your area for details and times.

Out of School Care

Out of School Care programs are staffed by energetic and creative instructors who support children in a fun and nurturing environment. All programs adhere to government regulations and work closely with Richmond Health Services.

Out of School Care programs are available at Cambie, Hamilton, South Arm and West Richmond Community Centres. The Community Associations delivering programs in these facilities hire coordinators to deliver quality licensed school age care for children aged 5-12 years.

For 2012/2013 registration, refer to a facility in your area. In person registration is required for all Out of School Care programs. Registration is ongoing.
