Before You Get Started

Please take a moment to read the registration procedures.  Please note that registration process from past years has changed and it is now all completed online.

1. Children must be toilet trained in order to start classes.
2. Parent volunteer commitment required is:

  • 3-year old program: 3 times in class per school year, toy-wash one evening per school year, playdough making once per school year
  • 4-year old program: 4 times in class per school year, toy-wash one evening per school year, rag washing once per school year

3. Age Requirement Clarification:

  • Students entering the 3-year old class must be three on the day that they start class (licensing requirement). If they do not turn three until after the beginning of September, they may register but must pay tuition to hold space until their child is eligible to attend (as late as December 31st).
  • Students entering the 4-year old class must turn 4 years old by December 31st of the school year (example: must be 4 years old by December 31st, 2019 to start in September 2019).
  • If a child turns 4 in the first few months of the school year, it is recommended that they enroll in the 4 year old class. However, this may depend on a discussion with the teacher and may depend when the parents plan to send their child to kindergarten.
  • For late registrations students may join a class up until February, after which point too much learning has occurred to catch up. However, registration must take place before December 31st. Special exceptions may apply, so discussion with the teacher is recommended in this case.

Registration Procedures

The registration will be completed in two steps as summarized below:

Step 1. Fill in initial registration application (link above). Registrar will contact you by email within one week to offer you a space in our program or to put you on a waitlist. Please remember exactly how you filled in child’s name in Step 1 as it must match exactly when completing step 2 below for process to be successful.

Step 2. Follow link in email from registrar to complete registration process. Please note that this second step must be completed within seven days of the email from the registrar. After this time your child’s space will be released if you have not completed the process. This second step will include inputting all of the required child’s information, guardian information, contact information (including pickup contact information), medical information and filling out some forms acknowledging school policies and permission forms. Lastly, La Coccinelle is moving to a pre-authorized credit card payment system, instead of using post-dated cheques. Therefore a valid credit card (Mastercard, Visa or Amex) must be input in order to complete the registration process. Once this step is completed you will receive an email to confirm placement within one week from the registrar. At that time your registration fee will be applied to your credit card (and any tuition fees due according to the schedule below if registering after August 1st, 2019). Once registration fee is paid it is non-refundable. Class space is allocated on a first-come first-served basis based on the date and time the initial online registrations are submitted, provided that step 2 of the online registration process is completed on time.

Waitlist Procedures

During registration, families will be given the option to list their first and second preferences. If your first choice is full, you will AUTOMATICALLY be registered for your second choice. You will NOT be placed on the waitlist for your first choice unless you contact the registrar by email to request this and you will still be registered in your second choice class. If your second choice is full, you will AUTOMATICALLY be added to the waitlist for your first choice. If no second choice is made and your first choice is full, you will automatically be added to the waitlist for your first choice.

A student may only be waitlisted for 1 class, but can switch at will. If a family wishes to waitlist for a different class, their priority date/time on the new waitlist is maintained. If waitlisted, an email will be sent when a spot becomes available with instructions to complete the registration process.

Priority Procedures:

Any family that does not complete both Steps 1 and 2 of the online registration or does not supply a credit card on time may continue to register in subsequent periods, with loss of their priority. Returning families are asked to provide the name of the sibling who most recently attended La Coccinelle and the year.
