Due to the high demand for our program and our limited spaces, Creative Minds Early Learning Centre maintains a wait list. Families will be accepted into the program in the order that their waitlist entry was received.
If a family is notified of an opening they are invited to come to the Centre within 24 hours of having the space offered to them. Securing a space requires a $100 non refundable registration fee and a deposit of $500.00.
If a family decides to vacate the spot anytime after the deposit is paid, but before they begin the program, they must provide one full calendar month’s notice on the first day of the month in order to receive a full refund. If less notice is received, no refund of the deposit. The Centre Director will make every effort to fill the vacant space and refund the deposit if possible. Join the Waitlist
