Hello Future QPPS Families

Thanks for considering Queen’s Park Preschool for your family.

Queen’s Park Preschool is a play-based preschool that offers both morning and afternoon programs for three and four year olds.

We believe that play provides opportunities for young children to learn about their world. Our teachers act as facilitators of play, promoting positive interactions with peers, and using positive guidance strategies. They strive to provide a safe, nurturing, inclusive, environment which encourages spontaneous play and fosters self-esteem.

Open-ended materials, creative spaces and unique experiences, are made available so that the children can learn and be curious about the world around them. As much as possible, the program is child-centered and grows out of the children’s interests and abilities. Parent participation allows parents to be actively involved in their child’s preschool experience by assisting the teachers in the classroom on a rotational basis.

FAQ – Common Enrollment Registration Questions and Answers

Please see the general QPPS FAQ page first > FAQ page

Q. What if I cannot attend the open house session that day?
A. Please email enroll@qpps.ca and we will be able to schedule another day for you to visit after class.

Q. How many spaces will be available?
A. Each morning and afternoon class has a maximum capacity of 20 students. Typically most of the 3 year old students continue onto the 4 year old class thus there will be a limited number of spaces for new 4 year old students, if any. The number of 3 year old spaces available will depend on how many siblings of current students and alumni students register the week before general registration. The number of spaces will be posted on this page as soon as that registration is completed.

Please email enroll@qpps.ca if you have any additional questions.
Thank you!

Parent Duty Day Addendum Information for the 2024/25 School Year

At Queen’s Park Preschool we are aware that being involved with the preschool can be difficult for some families due to scheduling or child care issues. We are also aware that some families would like to be more involved with the preschool.

Option 1
Up to 5 families (25% of the class) will be eligible to pay a monthly opt-out fee of $75 to not require in-class duty days. The families would still be required to have a family job at the preschool but this would be done outside of school hours.

Option 2
Up to 5 families (25% of the class) in lieu of having an additional preschool job, may elect to have 2 additional in-class duty days each month (these duty days are on top of their regularly scheduled days).

While it is a goal of the preschool that all parents will be able to participate in-class with their children, we hope that this flexibility is able to allow as many families as possible to enjoy our preschool experience as their schedule allows.
