Preschool Parent Handbook

BGC Saskatoon operates preschool programs in both John Lake School and Ecole College Park. Each preschool location has one teacher and one assistant trained in early childhood education and first aid/cpr.

Our preschool programs are designed to provide children ages 3-4 with a positive first educational experience. Classes are from 9:15am to 11:30am and have a maximum of 16 children per day. Sessions are designed to be engaging for children between the ages 3-5. All classes require children to be fully potty trained and they must be three (3) years of age by September 30, 2022, in order to attend preschool. The class schedule follows the Saskatoon Public School Division school calendar - there are no preschool classes on days the school is closed to K-Gr.8 students (holidays, stats, professional development days etc.)

Children will learn through play-based education about concepts related to social skills, classroom routines, numeracy, literacy, music, art, science, and physical education. There is no parent/guardian requirement to volunteer but opportunities may arise for parents/guardians to participate. Utilizing a play and exploration framework allows children to gain confidence and excitement for learning in anticipation of kindergarten. Field trips (2-4 per school year) provide additional opportunities for all levels of learning. Preschool will take place both indoors and outdoors (as weather allows) so please ensure your child is dressed for the day with clothing, shoes, and outerwear to ensure they can participate in all activities. Ecole College Park also includes a basic introduction to the French language.

Registered families will receive an email from the preschool teacher in August with additional updates/information and a school supply list for the fall. For families needing financial assistance to help with monthly preschool fees please visit the Saskatoon Preschool Foundation at https://www.spf.sk.ca/

The registration fee of $40.00 is due at the time of registration and is non-refundable. Monthly fees will be processed via direct withdrawal or credit card payment on the 15th or 25th of each month starting in September (you will need to select which day you prefer at the time of registration). Cancellation requires one month notice (by the first of the month) with fees for the notice month due. Cancellations with less than one month notice will be required to pay an additional month's fees. To cancel your registration please email [email protected] and include your name, your child's name, and the preschool location you are registered in.
