Kindergarten / Re: Age for kindergarten
« Last post by mariasmith on June 04, 2015, 03:36:15 AM »
My daughter is 2 years old and I have enrolled her in preschool. Before going to kindergarten, kids should get prepared for it. At the age of 5, I will enroll her in kindergarten. In preschool, she will get habit of it and activities, programs will help her in future. As, directly admission in kindergarten is not good, as I think it gets difficult for children to adjust in full day school.

Thank you Rose , for suggestions.

Can anyone recommend a child care center?

my kid attended Montessori last summer and it was a great foundation.
He learned how to follow instructions specifically Montessori's rules

Although it is  a quite expensive but I never regret that I sent my son in there.

Small claims court? Even threatening can sometimes help.
Also is she registered/accredited? You could get in touch with her agency?

I'm currently looking into several in the Yonge/Dambroisio/BigBay/Madeline Area, this is all new to me!. I would like some good reviews of ones around that area. My son is 4yrs old I want to prep him for Kindergarden. Looking for the Best Atmosphere, Clean, Safe, Healthy Snacks, Reliable, Friendly, Fenced Yard, Arts, Crafts AND Learning. NO Dogs at the Daycare. Please let me know if theres a better one that isnt listed in the poll. Thanks!!  :)
I typically advise parents that during transition phase, it's best to keep visits including the parent to about 2 hrs or less the first day as the other children's routine is affected with guests visiting.  It's also better for their own child not to associate the parent too much with the daycare. If parents stay long, their child begins to think they are a part of the DC.  Best to visit 2 hrs first day, less the 2nd and leave for 1/2 hr, hopefully by the 3rd day the parent leaves immediately, with a smile even if child is crying, for half a day or so.
Running a Daycare / Subsidized vs. non-subsidized daycares
« Last post by ambermalissa on April 01, 2015, 03:31:20 PM »
If I open a private home daycare in Quebec and charge $35 a day, will my parents be reiumbursed any of that by the government?  I'm just wondering if I would get more clientelle as a subsidized daycare, and I also want to avoid clients leaving if they DO eventualy get a subsidized spot somewhere...
