Application Procedure

  1. We welcome prospective parents to set up a 15 minutes classroom and meet with our Principal. It allows parents to assess if our school's philosophy and program suits the needs of your child and your family. Please contact us by phone and set up an appointment. We will give you an application package at the meeting.
  2. Parents submit a Registration Form and a one time non-refundable registration fee of $100 to PMCH (For new students only).
  3. Upon acceptance, a signed enrollment agreement and accompanying fees are due.

    *Please print and fill out both Enrollment Agreement and Registration Form and bring them when you come in to register.

Please fill out the Media Consent Form if you wish/do not wish to disclose your child's information. Please contact us if you have any question.

*Please also bring the Media Consent Form with you when you come in to register.

Withdrawals

Children may be voluntarily withdrawn from the program on the first day of any month prior to March 1st and a minimum one month written notification is required for withdrawal, otherwise fees for the months will be payable. There will be no refunds for withdrawal after March 1st. In the event a child demonstrates continuous verbal, aggressive and other harmful behaviours towards other children and/or staff members, PMCH reserves the right to withdraw a child immediately in the best interest of the other children in the class as a whole.

Late-Fee Charges

For parents who arrive after the pick up time, the charge for the first 15 minutes will be $10.00. For each additional minute after that will be $1.00 per minute. For example, if you arrive 20 minutes late, the late charge will be $15.00.

If you have an emergency, please have your alternate (listed on your registration form) pick up your child. If you are late, your child will be anxious and will have many question that our staff cannot answer. Even a few minutes in this situation will be very stressful for your child.
