Welcome to Parkcrest Preschool

Parkcrest Child Care Society has been established since 1996. We are a non-profit society and a registered charity. Our teachers are fully qualified, licensed and have many years of experience. For more information about Parkcrest Preschool, please click here.

Each month you will receive a bulletin to inform you of activities planned for the month, as well as information and dates to remember. There will be no preschool on the following elementary school professional days; the school age care program will need the facility on these days. The preschool staff use these days for planning, meetings, classroom and toy cleaning etc.

PROFESSIONAL DAYS: There will be several professional days throughout the school year.  These days are scheduled to coincide with the Pro D days at Parkcrest and Aubrey Elementary School.  There will be no preschool classes on these days.  To date, the scheduled professional days are: Sept. 30, Oct. 21, Nov. 25, Jan. 23, Feb. 17, and Apr. 24.  If the elementary schools change these dates, we may also change accordingly. The preschool staff use these days for planning, meetings, classroom and toy cleaning etc.

Our first Pro D day will be Friday September 30th.

SCHOLASTIC BOOKS: We are offering Scholastic book club once again to our preschoolers.  Scholastic offers affordable, quality books and in turn, our school gains credit.  We are able to purchase books and art supplies that our children enjoy throughout the year.
There is no obligation – just an offering.

First orders are DUE: SEPTEMBER 19th (for 3 day program) or the 20th ( for 2 day program)
Please pay online with credit card, or bring in your order form and pay by cheque.
*no cash please Thank you!!

PICK UP: Please introduce any new individuals who may be picking up. This individual’s name must be on your registration form.  We cannot release your child to anyone who is not on the pick up list. If you have not informed us directly, we will need to verify by asking for proof of identity. (ie-drivers license etc.)
Please ensure you are here promptly at drop off time and dismissal time. 

TRAFFIC SAFETY/PARKING: For safety of the preschool and elementary school children on their way to/from school:
“Please drive with care”, and DO NOT turn around in driveways and continue to drive in the direction your car is facing.  This is considered to be a u-turn and is prohibited in a school zone.  Please do not park at the top of the stairs! Obey the “NO PARKING” zones in front of the playground and school. The parking area is reserved for the staff and wheelchair parking.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS: We are looking for volunteers to join our parent board. If you are interested in joining the board, and would love to help support and maintain our organization with your time and expertise, please talk to Pam our director for more information.
We typically meet on a Monday in the evening once a month for a few hours.

YOUR CHILD’S SNACK: Please help us to promote healthy eating habits.  Provide healthy snacks such as fruits, vegetables, cheese and crackers, and yogurt. In anticipation of changes to our garbage collection, we are recommending that snacks be brought in recyclable containers and as litter less as possible. Let’s do our part and lessen our environmental impact.

Please do not send: NUTS, chocolates, candies, sugary treats, juice, pudding, cookies, or chips. Remember, a whole apple is better than eating fruit snacks that contain 10% real fruit!
If you child’s snack is not appropriate, we will send it back home.

CONGRATULATIONS MISS JENNY!
Our Miss Jenny is getting married! She is looking for small glass jars, hopefully by the end of September. Thank you!
