Admission Policy  
In determining acceptance, please note that it is assessed on a space available basis with priority given to currently enrolled students and their siblings.

Enrolled students must re-enroll for the next school year. The school reserves the right to accept or reject applicants at their discretion. Such decisions are based upon educational opportunity availability, age requirement and student behaviour.

   
 
Tuition Fees  

Due to the variety of programs available, it is best to email us reachforthestars@telus.net  for a program & tuition schedule.

Please note government subsidies are also available for qualifying families. For more information, please check with the Ministry of Children and Family Development.

Tax Advantage

Our school qualifies for a tax advantage of up to $7,000 per year, per child. This amount is directly deducted from your earnings when filing your taxes. Please consult your accountant for detailed information as Ministry Guidelines are subject to change.

   
   
 
Additional Fees
 

As our bank charges for cheques returned NSF, we in turn will charge $25 in addition to the replacement amount. If the replacement cheque is also returned NSF, the charge will double, and the replacement amount must be made by certified cheque or cash.

 
 
Withdrawals
 

Children may be voluntarily withdrawn from the program on the first day of any month prior to March 1st and a minimum one month written notification is required for withdrawal, otherwise fees for the months will be payable. Please refer to your parent agreement for detailed information regarding financial conditions. There will be no refunds for withdrawal after March 1st. Once post dated cheques are submitted to the school, upon accepted withdrawals, the non applicable cheques will not be returned, but rather shred for security. In the best interest of the other children and the program, the school reserves the right to withdraw a child if necessary. There will no tolerance to children that demonstrate repetitive agressive and harmful behaviour towards the other children and/or staff. These children may be asked to withdraw from the school immediately.

Failure to do so will result in a charge for the remainder months of the annual parking pass, assessed by Impark and payable to the school.

   
 
Child-Care Subsidy
 
British Columbia's Child Care Subsidy Program is operated by the Ministry of Community, Aboriginal and Women's Services and delivered through the community offices of the Ministry of Human Resources and may provide a childcare subsidy for the care of children who attend a licensed preschool. Families do not need to be receiving social assistance to be eligible for subsidy. Contact the Childcare Subsidy Program office for more information.
