Pre-K Welcome Pass
What is the Pre-K Welcome Pass?
This new pilot program allows pre-k families to now gain a full range of childcare coverage from 7am to 6pm for just a fraction of the cost. By registering for the pre-k welcome pass, our families now have access to:
- Morning care from 7am to 8am
- 1 enrichment class daily (atelier) to be selected from an exciting choice of programs
- Extended care until 6pm
This new formula allows families to register in one easy step for a bundle of Extended Day services that will cover all their childcare needs while ensuring one hour of a very special enrichment class for their child daily.
How do I register for this program?
Families select one enrichment class for every weekday out of a choice of two or three. The chosen class runs from 3:35pm to 4:35pm throughout the session. By purchasing a class, families also gain access to extended care and morning care on the same day of the week at no additional cost. Please scroll down to discover our exciting line-up of ateliers for pre-k students.
How does pricing work?
Cost per weekday for session 1 is $470. Session 1 runs September 11, 2023 - February 14, 2024
Cost per weekday for session 2 is $325. Session 2 runs February 26, 2024 - June 11, 2024
A family who would register for two days per week during session 1, and for three days per week during session 2 would pay: [($470X2)+($325X3)] =$1,915.
On these selected weekdays, the child would also have access to extended care and morning care at no additional cost. Families interested in these services can simply select them during registration for their welcome pass.
What is the afternoon structure?
At 3:00 pm, registered students stay in their own classroom with their assistant teacher while regular pick-up takes place. It is snack time and free-time play. Please note that students staying after school will be asked to bring their own snack each day.
At 3:30 pm, registered students are taken to their atelier of the day for a 1-hour activity.
At 4:35 pm, ateliers end and students transition to a free-play focused childcare. Weather permitting, students spend as much time as possible playing outdoors on the playground. When staying indoors, the afterschool team organizes themed activities ranging from dress-up/pretend stories to construction games, various types of crafts, reading and story time, or more active play. Read our Safety Guide to learn more about our updated pick-up process.
I don't need after-school care. Can I just sign up for morning care?
Yes! Please see our page on Before Care for pricing and details.
Included in your Pre-K Welcome Pass is your choice of daily Atelier! Our LFC*extra team and select vendors offer a variety of classes, designed specifically for our Pre-K students, with small class sizes for plenty of fun and support along the way.
Session 1 runs from September through February, and Session 2 will run from March through June.
