The registration fee is $45.00 and will guarantee your child’s space for the coming year. This registration fee is non-refundable. NEW!!! Starting September 1, 2023 Sunshine Preschool is part of the Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative provided by the Government of BC. The monthly fees are as follows:
September 2023 to June 2024 fees
3 and 4 year old group: $247.00 per month - $57 per month Fee Reduction
Parents pay $190 per month
4 year old group: $330.00 per month - $76 per month Fee Reduction
Parents pay $247.00 per month
In order to make equal monthly payments, the fees have been averaged over a 10 month period, rather than paying more for some months and less for others. Therefore, even though the program is closed for Christmas vacation and Spring break, the full fee is paid.
** SEPTEMBER’S FEE IS DUE AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION AS OUTLINED IN THE FEE POLICY THAT YOU WILL BE ASKED TO SIGN.
The registration fee and the September fee (which is dated the day you register) must be forwarded to us with your registration form in order that a space is held for your child. The registration fee is non refundable. After registration, if you decide to withdraw your child, September’s fee will be considered non refundable after June 13th of the school year. Therefore, if you withdraw you child after June 15th, fees will only be returned if the spot is filled by June 15th of the school year.
If you are withdrawing your child during the school year, a one month notice is required. Please note that if anytime during the school year you take holidays or your child is away for an extended period of time, the full months’ fee is still required in order to hold your child’s spot.
On the first day of your child’s class, please have nine post-dated cheques ready, made out to Sunshine Preschool. Remember to change the year on your cheques from January – June. There will be a $25.00 NSF charge for any returned cheques.
You may pay your monthly fees by E transfer, fees are due the first of the month and can be transferred to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you choose this method of payment it is your responsibility to transfer the money on the first of the month, late payments will be charged a $25.00 late fee.
