ACE offers full-time childcare to children between the ages of 6 months to entrance into Grade 1. Care is offered in four different age groups, all with designated child to staff ratios. Our toddler room is currently dedicated to a slightly lower ratio than required at this time to facilitate the needs of this busy age group.
Full-time care is offered at the rates set in our fee schedule, which is reviewed on a yearly basis by our Board of Directors.
Available to children who are in Room 3 or 4, ACE's Part-Time Sharing Agreement allows for one full-time spot, under certain terms and conditions, to be shared by two parties, in one of three ways:
It is required that there are two families that wish to participate at the same time for part time spaces to be accessed. If you are interested in part time, please reach out to the executive director to find out if there are possible partnerships available.
Part-time care is offered at the rates set in our fee schedule, which is reviewed on a yearly basis by our Board of Directors.
Drop in care is offered for children starting once your child is in Room 3 or at least 3 years of age on a first come first serve basis, subject to availability.
Please contact us directly to arrange for drop-in care. Temporary registration documents will be required completed before the child can be dropped off.
Preschool (3-6 years): $60/day and $45.0/half day
