If you’re curious about the enrollment process, you’re in the right place! We’ve gathered all the resources you need to help you make a confident decision to join the Newstead Academy family.
While we (obviously) think you should look no further for the best child care in the area, we understand that every family’s needs are unique. Whether you choose us or not, we’re here to help you select the right center for your family.
Making the decision to find a child care provider can stir up many questions and emotions. We’ll help you make a list of things you might ask yourself or your care provider as you explore your options.
Our centres are pretty special—come see for yourself! In-person tours are a little tricky these days, but we can make it work with a little flexibility and a lot of respect. We currently offer COVID-compliant after-hours or weekend visits, please contact us to book an appointment.
Costs can be one of the biggest factors when picking the very best child care option for your family. Learn all about how we determine what it will cost your family during your first visit tour. You might be eligible for tuition or fee assistance. Learn more about Tax credit and Subsidized Child Care here.
The enrolment process is quick and easy if there are spots available! Please contact our centre to get started.
Once you’re enrolled with us, we’ll help you get prepared for a fabulous first day. Some things for you to bring each day include:
Snacks and lunch and even dinner are all on us! We’ll share our seasonal, low-sugar menu when you enroll. If your child has special dietary restrictions or allergies, let's talk.
It’s a good idea to prepare your child for some of the things we do to keep everyone in our community safe. Get some tips for our industry-leading health and safety practices.
For example, our staff members will be wearing masks. You can tell your child that we wear masks to protect ourselves and others from germs. Underneath every mask is a big, beautiful smile!
We keep you connected all day through the our ECE app so drop-off is less “bitter” and more “sweet!” When you enroll with us, the app gives you access to daily pictures of special moments in the classroom and updates on what your child is learning about. You can also use the mobile app to message your center from home, at work, or on the go.
