Program Overview

Can I sign up for any two weeks during the summer?

Yes! We understand your family may want to take summer holidays. Our two-week minimum sign-up is non-consecutive so you can plan around your vacation but still sign up for your child’s preferred theme week.

What is the schedule for the program?

The morning program is for children between the ages of two and three (or a tiny bit older if they’re still napping!), and it runs from 8:30 am to noon every weekday.

The afternoon program is for children between the ages of three and five, and it runs from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm every weekday.

Every day, children will have time for:

  • Free Play
  • Creative art and sensory play
  • Gym time
  • Snack time provided by the school
  • Storytime
  • Music and movement

What are the drop-off and picku-up times for each program?

AM drop off: between 8:30–9:00 am

AM pick up: between 11:30am–12:00 pm

PM drop off: between 1:00–1:30pm

PM pick up: between 3:30–4:00pm

What is the deadline to register?

The deadline to register your child for summer camp is June 15 — but summer camps are on a first-come, first-served basis, so register now!

How much French is spoken during the day?

All of our educators are native French speakers, and our entire program is in French. But please note that all language backgrounds are welcome and our first priority is your child’s well-being. That means educators will speak English as needed during adaptation, and for engagement and safety purposes.

Are snacks provided?

Yes! La Petite École includes a daily snack as part of our program. Our menu has been developed with a registered nutritionist, and it’s allergy-safe. You’ll be able to see the snack, posted weekly on the window, when you visit the school.

What are La Petite École’s COVID-19 policies?

All parents receive a copy of our COVID-19 policies and procedures upon registration. Our policies keep up with provincial government regulations as they shift throughout the course of the pandemic.

What is your cancellation policy?

La Petite École does not offer refunds or make-up days in the case of illness, last-minute vacation, or self-isolation.
