Preschool Registration for 2018/19
We are currently accepting Lottery Submission Forms for the 2018/2019 school year. For more information, phone 780.468.2598 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lottery Submission Forms can be found here. Please print off the appropriate form, complete and either scan and email to email@example.com, fax to 780.463.8630 or drop by the school office between 8 am and 4 pm Monday to Friday.
We welcome interested families to join us for our annual Open House which takes place the first Thursday of February each year. At our Open House, potential families have an opportunity to hear more details about our program, enjoy student and group performances, meet our administration Preschool Director, and participate in tours led by our enthusiastic student leaders. At this time, interested parents are also welcome to add their child's name to the lottery for the upcoming school year.
In the event that your child's name was not drawn in the lottery for the upcoming school year, you are welcome to add your child's name to the lottery for the following year.
The first round of the lottery begins the day after our Open House. In the event of available spaces, all student names received are randomly selected for registration. Following selection, parents are contacted by phone to let them know their child's name was drawn and that they need to attend our Registration Day to complete registration and pay fees. The lottery process continues anytime space becomes available (if a student withdraws enrolment or a lottery winner declines a space) until the end of September. Please note: We do not transfer students in mid-year (after September 30th) even if spaces become available due to the structure of our programming.
Our registration process begins in January as we complete our priority registration with siblings of students in Kindergarten to Grade 6, staff members' children, and, if spaces allow, alumni children or students who live in the Suzuki Community Boundary. Once this has been completed, we calculate how many spaces are available for the upcoming school year. These spaces are then filled using a lottery process. To participate in this lottery process, parents are welcome to complete a Lottery Submission Form at any time throughout the year and scan to School Secretary, Lisa Leflar, at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 780.463.8630. These forms are held until the end of September of the applicable school year.
If your child's name is successfully drawn in the lottery, you are asked to attend Registration Day which includes: completion of registration information, fee payment, and a meeting with the Principal regarding student learning needs, Parents of all students entering Suzuki Preschool will need to provide/complete the following:
- Government issued identification proving legal name and age of your child (Canadian Birth Certificate, Passport, Landed Immigrant, Permanent Resident Card etc.)
