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.

Parent Duty Day Addendum Information for the 2021/22 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.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation this year, normal in-class parent participation has been restricted but we anticipate should the health situation return to normal during the school year that the following options will become available for parents.

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.
