Frequently Asked Questions
Does my child need to complete a gradual entry process?

Yes, all children must complete a gradual entry process. The supervisor of the program will create the schedule and share it with you. The gradual entry process typically takes place in the first week of the month that your child begins. If space permits, it may be arranged to complete the process the week before. For an early gradual entry, additional fees will be charged.
