2016/17 Year: Still a few spaces left

As of September 30, 2016, Varsity View Co-operative Preschool has a few spaces available for this school year, 2016/2017 – we can accept a few last students and are also accepting people on a wait list.

For more information, please email the Registrar at VVCP Registrar.

If you would like to register, we require a completed registration form (available to download on the FORMS page), as well as the $25 registration fee.

2016-17 Preschool start date

To help the children get adjusted to the preschool environment, we are staggering their start dates. This means that only half of the students will be coming to each session during the first week. With a smaller amount of children, it is a little less overwhelming. We will be forwarding you a list telling you what day and time your child will be coming during the beginning week of September 7-9th. This is the only day and time that your child will attend preschool during the first week.

Regular enrollment will begin the following week, Monday Sept. 12th, with your child attending on his/her registered days.

2016/17 VVCP AGM/Orientation Night

Parent Orientation night is Tuesday September 6th, 2016 at 6:00pm. The Annual General Meeting will be incorporated into this evening as well. It is hosted in the preschool room at Brunskill School.

Attendance is mandatory for each family, as this is when all details of the preschool will be explained, including volunteer, fund-raising and toy wash obligations. Information sheets will also be distributed outlining signing up for volunteer days online. This orientation is for one or both parents only (and can include their respective stand-in who will be volunteering in the classroom); we kindly ask that children not attend.

The board will be elected at the AGM; the list of nominees is included on the Contact page. If there are any open positions, nominations will be taken from the floor. Financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2016 will be available for your review.

Parent Handbook updated

Note that the new 2016/17 Parent Handbook has been updated and available for download as a PDF from the Forms page.

NOTE: Revised version posted Monday August 29, 2016. Changes include regular enrolment starting the week of Monday September 12th, 2016 (NOT Tuesday Sept. 13); substitute teacher payments; and board listing updates.

2015-16 Handbooks in the mail

Preschool Handbooks and other information for the upcoming 2015-16 preschool year are in the mail and/or should have been delivered to your household if your child is registered for this coming year.

If you don’t receive anything soon, please contact the preschool registrar.

The website has been updated to reflect information in this year’s Handbook.
