At Sidney Preschool we offer the Sea Stars Preschool Program and the Chickadees Child Care Program.
Sea Stars is our four hour preschool program for children 30 months to 5 years of age. This program is offered Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 12:55 pm. We follow the School District #63 school calendar with a start date one week after Labour Day and an end date one week prior to the last day of school. The preschool is open on Non-Instructional (Pro-D) days. Parents choose 2, 3, or 4 days per week.
Chickadees Child Care is an add on to the Sea Stars day and runs from 12:55 pm – 3:15 pm, pending sufficient enrollment.

Child Care Option
Our six hour child care program combines our preschool program with an added two hours and twenty minutes in the afternoons for a full day from 9 am to 3:15 pm.
Children will begin in the busier Sea Stars Program and end the day with Chickadees, a quieter, more low key afternoon program. Our afternoon starts with an extension of our outdoor play time and includes a shared buffet snack, a rest or nap (if desired), an opportunity to continue projects started in the morning, and small group play and activities based on the children’s interests. This class is led by our ECE and there is no parent/guardian participation in the afternoons. Please note that the Chickadees Program only runs with sufficient enrollment.

Two Days per Week
+$120.00 per month
Three Days Per Week
+$150.00 per month
