Welcome to PELP
Registration for 2021/2022
In light of the ever changing COVID situation, we have decided to POSTPONE our Open House and Registration Night until the Spring. We hope by then we will be able to have more clarity as the whether we will be running one class or two, what days classes will be held, if we will be allowed to have volunteers, if we will be continuing with a classroom assistant etc. As always, current students and their siblings receive priority registration.
Be sure to check back here for updates.
COVID REGISTRATION UPDATE
After consulting our Preschool families we have made some changes to the way that PELP will operate for the 2020/2021 school year. We feel that these changes will help us to successfully offer our program to community families while meeting or exceeding the government requirements when it comes to health and safety protocols.
1) Due to lower than usual enrolment we will only be running one class this year. It will be a combined 3 and 4-year-old class.
2) PELP prides itself on being a volunteer-run program but with the COVID rules and regulations and the government discouraging volunteers, we realized that this would be very tricky to facilitate for 2020/2021. After reviewing feedback from our families we have decided to pause the volunteer aspect of the program for this year. We are in the process of hiring a dedicated classroom assistant who will be with us on a contract basis for the school year. This was not an easy decision as the volunteer aspect of PELP is one of the things that makes the program so special. However, we thought that it was critical that we make a decision that was the safest for our students and their families. We will reevaluate this structure towards the end of the school year and will be looking forward to taking into account the feedback from our community and families, as well as the health situation at that time.
